T-Level Work Based Learning Assessor for Digital and IT
"I’m a T level assessor based in the STEM Centre at Middlesbrough College. My job is to build relationships with local employers within the Tees Valley area who would be interested in supporting a long term industry placement for our Level 3 Digital and IT students.
"The T level has been specifically designed to offer students a meaningful work placement that is tailored towards their career aspirations and offers them the best chance of employment in the future.
"Due to being a student myself in the past, I’m acutely aware of the challenges young people face in this day and age. Finding employment that they not only enjoy, but that also offers them a potential career pathway is one of the objectives of my job. Although venturing into the working world can be a daunting prospect for a young student, I’m here to support them at every stage and ensure they get the best placement possible."
T-Level Work Based Learning Assessor in Health and Social Care
"In previous teaching roles I have been the assessor for student teachers and teacher assistants. I enjoy supporting and encouraging students to develop, grow in confidence in the work place and set new targets to become a better person.
"I became a T level assessor as I like new challenges and T-levels will be an exciting move forward in Education. I am interested to see how it will change, develop and be implemented
"My day-to-day consists of finding new placements and matching to the right student in Health Care setting, working with a range of managers to ensure Middlesbrough College students are achieving their potential and assessing and supporting students on their reflective practice and helping to guide them on a final project."
T-Level Work Based Learning Assessor in Construction and the Built Environment
"Building relationships with employers across the tees valley and beyond, my mission is to bring students and the region’s businesses together through meaningful and structured work placements.
"As a T-Level Assessor, I work directly with students to help them to gain hands-on, technical experience on live construction sites and projects - matching career aspirations to employer requirements.
"Having spent the past 15 years working in recruitment, training and education I’m passionate about helping young people to fulfil their career goals and love being able to help students to explore the huge variety of careers within the construction industry."
