T Level students achieve top results

Students are celebrating at Furness College after receiving remarkable T Level results.

The very first cohort of T Level students at Furness College received their results this week at the Channelside campus and were ecstatic with the outcome.

The T Level Health students and T Level Education students achieved top grades and will now progress onto higher apprenticeships, employment and university.

After a challenging couple of years for the students, they can now relax and celebrate with their families knowing they all have positive outcomes after studying this new qualification.

Former Dowdales student Rhiannon Biggins successfully achieved a Distinction in T Level Education and is now progressing onto a Higher Apprenticeship in Project Management at BAE Systems.

“I’m very happy about my result and I’m so proud of myself for how well I have done and I’m sure my family will be too once I get chance tell them.”

“Studying a T Level has helped me secure my higher apprenticeship because you get the experience in the workplace and you learn how to be more professional.”

“I enjoyed the course especially the placement, there are observations and it helps you develop to your practical skills and be assessed and not just sit exams.”

Another amazing T Level Education student is Leo Myerscough who achieved a distinction and is going to work for Furness Academy.

“I’m overjoyed, it’s a massive weight off my shoulders knowing I did so well and it’s really boosted my confidence getting a distinction.”

“I would encourage anyone to do a T Level if you know your career ambitions before, unlike other subjects it offers a direct route into a specialised area and the 45-day work placement gives you brilliant opportunities.”

Keith Wardle, Head of Faculty, Foundation Learning and People Services at Furness College said the T Level students have all been outstanding.

“Students have all had a really positive experience with good local employers over the 2 years. The T Levels have enabled all the students to move onto apprenticeships and full-time jobs.”

The students should be really proud of themselves embarking on any qualifications is a challenge but they have been dedicated and hardworking and they’ve achieved outstanding results, which are fully deserved.”

T Level Health students were also celebrating this week after achieving a great set of results despite all the challenges that came with the qualification nationally.

Former UVHS student Ferne Allen achieved a distinction in T Level Health and is now applying for a Nurse Associate Apprenticeship with UHMBT, where she successfully completed her industry placement.

“I’m really happy, I didn’t expect to get a distinction, I thought I did average but I’ve surprised myself.”

“The course has had its ups and downs but the industry placement and the Clinical Skills Suite have helped massively with my learning, it’s solidified my ambitions of working in the healthcare sector.”

“My advice to anyone on a T Level or thinking of studying one is to make the most of your placement, don’t be shy, immerse yourself into everything and don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone.”

Another outstanding T Level Health student is Jessica Jackson who achieved a Merit in her studies.

“I’m shocked and excited, my result has given me a lot more confidence. My mam has already started crying because she’s so excited for me.”

“I absolutely love my classmates, they have helped me a lot and we have pulled through this together.”

“I want to give a massive thank you to my tutors and those who I have worked with on my industry placement, they have been there for me the whole time and helped me see the light at the end of the tunnel.”

Iain Hook, Careers & Engagement Team Lead at the University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Foundation Trust said he was very proud to support this cohort of T Level Health students and the strong collaboration shared with Furness College.

“The students' achievements are, of course, down to their hard work and we are grateful to have been part of their development and to now be part of their burgeoning healthcare careers. I know of at least one of this cohort who is seeking to undertake an Apprenticeship with the Trust as an apprentice Nurse Associate and I hope to see her on our corridors soon.”

“A huge thanks must also be extended to our Trust colleagues on the Wards and in the Departments, which supported the industry placements and provided the opportunities."

Sue Hannan, Assistant Principal, Curriculum and T Level Lead for Furness College said the T Level students were an exceptional bunch of young people.

“These students took a chance on a new qualification and it’s paid off for them. I am delighted with their success and we look forward to following their journey in Health and Education.”

“It’s been a challenging and complex qualification with real academic rigour but we can clearly see how much this has helped the students prepare for their next steps, and, of course, thanks must go to our staff who have worked so hard to bring T levels to life.”
