Additional considerations for Science

There are currently no mandatory additional requirements for T Levels, but this is being kept under review through the development of the programme. There are, however, some supplementary recommendations for some specific T Level courses that a could be beneficial to some students for their industry placement, or as they move on to a job.

As a college or school delivering T Levels, you can decide whether to include them in your T Level programme.

Health and Science T Level in Science

  • DBS basic or enhanced checks and disqualified disclosure
    Where required, students should complete this check before they start their industry placement.
  • Health check
    Before starting their industry placement, students should have the relevant inoculations and
    immunisations. These will be determined by the employers they are doing their placement with.
  • Food and hygiene (for Food Science occupational specialism only)
    Dependent on the nature of the industry placement, it may help students to do some relevant food and hygiene training before they start.
