Introduction to T Level Health

The healthcare industry is one of the fastest-growing industries in the world. With an ageing population and constant advancements in medical technology, the demand for skilled healthcare professionals is only going to increase going forward. The T Level Health course in the UK is a two-year qualification for students aged 16-19 aiming to pursue a career in healthcare. The course covers a range of specialist subjects and provides practical work experience, making it a valuable addition to the curriculum for colleges and course providers.

What Are T Levels?

T levels are an alternative option to A levels, apprenticeships and any other courses available to people aged 16-19. One T Level is essentially equivalent to three A Levels, and can help students find their way into skilled employment, higher study and apprenticeships. There are a number of different T Level courses to choose from; 16 currently, with the aim of adding another 8 by 2024. You can read more about T Levels on the gov.uk website.

Importance of T Level Health to the Medical Industry

The T Level Health course is a two-year course that provides students with the skills and knowledge they need to pursue a career in healthcare. The course covers a range of subjects, including anatomy and physiology, medical terminology, and healthcare ethics. Students also have the opportunity to gain practical work experience through placements in healthcare settings. 

The T Level Health course is an important addition to healthcare education for several reasons. Firstly, it provides students with a clear pathway into the healthcare industry. By completing the course, students have a solid foundation of knowledge and skills that are highly valued by employers in the healthcare sector. Secondly, the course is designed to meet the needs of the healthcare industry, which is currently experiencing a skills shortage. By training students in the skills and knowledge needed for the healthcare industry, the T Level Health course is helping to address this shortage.

Benefits of Providing The T Level Health Course

Offering the T Level Health course can be a valuable addition to the curriculum for colleges and course providers. Firstly, it provides students with a clear picture of how to start their medical career. Secondly, the course provides practical work experience, which is highly valued by employers in the healthcare sector. By offering practical work experience, colleges and course providers can help students to gain the skills and knowledge needed to succeed as a healthcare professional.

For colleges that offer T Level Health, there are certain products and devices that are essential to carrying out the course to its learners. There are a number of requirements and specifications that need to be met by providers to ensure that the course and its relevant assessments can be completed. It can be difficult to know exactly what equipment is needed for your college in order to carry out the course.

Manikins For T Level Health

The T Level Health course specification states that you must have a responsive manikin, which is exactly what Simulaids ALEX is. A responsive, patient communication simulator with built-in AI and feedback. 

The course also has care specialisms, which is where DANi and TERi make the ideal manikins. Despite the fact they are very similar manikins, the patient profile is totally different for both. DANi is a care manikin designed to support training for issues in young adults such as sexual assault and self harm. TERi, on the other hand, is an geriatric (elderly) manikin which prepares learners for the care of elderly patients with potential issues such as arthritis.


ALEX Patient Communication Simulator provides all the physiological features of a full-body high fidelity human patient simulator you expect: palpable pulse points, spontaneous breathing, blood pressure measurement, high-fidelity lung/heart/bowel sounds, live CPR metrics with BVM ventilation, simulated patient monitor and 12-lead ECG, intubatable airway and more.

DANi is an advanced training solution designed to support training on the fundamentals of nursing and EMS procedures for issues relating to drug abuse, sexual assault, mental health, or self-harm. Learners can practice on a comprehensive and complete simulation platform including patient monitoring capability and auscultation (heart and lung sounds).

Patient Monitoring

We have a range of advanced simulation products in the form of training simulators that use the latest technology to give learners the most realistic learning experience possible.


Skillqube is a simulated patient monitor device, replicating the look and sounds of patient monitors without having to use a live unit device which could be used on a real patient. Having to use live unit patient monitors for training purposes has been a frustration in healthcare training for a number of years.

With Skillqube, you can choose from a range of interfaces, including Zoll, Weinmann and others. We offer a number of different packages for T Level Health as each college’s requirements are slightly different. 


As a leading provider of preclinical training and simulations, Skillqube has played a key role in this development and offers extensive solutions and training. Skillqube Training operates the largest American Heart Association (AHA) International Training Centre (ITC) in the DACH region.

What’s included?

A qube adult cable set, qube pediatric cable set, stationary WLAN router, qubeZERO, qubeAED and two qubeCPR sensors. 

Clinical Skills

Clinical skills are a staple of the T Level Health course. Clinical skills in healthcare are everyday skills that must be perfected for students to achieve their qualification and be able to use in an occupational setting. Clinical skills are used in all areas of healthcare, by nurses, surgeons, lab technicians and medical assistants in their day-to-day role. They are developed in training and through a qualification such as the T Level Health course, but continue to be developed at all stages of a healthcare professional’s career. 

Clinical skills are generally divided into two main categories: hard and soft skills. Soft skills are broader, less specific skills such as patient communication, whereas hard skills refer to technical skills that are specific to a role, such as administering medication to a patient.

Basic Life Support

Whilst the higher end manikins such as those listed above are needed for the T Level Health course, basic resuscitation manikins and other devices are also essential. Resuscitation can be performed on most high-end manikins, but their main features are usually more specialist, which go further than basic resuscitation. For simple, purely resuscitation-based devices, check out the below products:

Basic Buddy® CPR Manikin

This manikin offers a realistic and affordable way to provide each student with their own CPR manikin.

Basic Buddy® Single CPR Manikin

The one-piece, disposable lung/mouth protection system makes this manikin completely sanitary – there is no risk of cross-contamination and no need to sanitise the manikins after use.

CPR Cube Pro

Anybody can learn the most important part of CPR: Chest compression without requiring an expensive Manikin. Use the scenario cards to learn different CPR Phrases. It can be used for individual learning or under guidance during class.
Find Out More

The basic buddy manikins are a great affordable option for resuscitation, leaving the more expensive, higher-fidelity manikins for more advanced practices.

The CPR Cube Pro is also a great alternative to an high-fidelity manikin, as it can connect to mobile devices and provide feedback on chest compression to ensure that learners are compressing at the correct depth and rate. It has two main sources of feedback, the first being a beeping sound that is activated at the correct compression depth as well as a metronome for a rhythm guide. The other is a LED light, which has different colours for depth, rate and recoil.
