Top level work by Laura.
Health and Social Care specialist Laura Evanson is in top level company as a Department for Education Ambassador for T Levels.
Ambassadors are currently an exclusive club with only 105 across the UK, who stay in touch via quarterly online meetings and across LinkedIn. Recently Laura gave a presentation at the DfE about the success of T Levels at The Bedford College Group (TBCG).
T Levels are part of the Government’s vision of the post-16 education landscape alongside A Levels and Apprenticeships. T stands for Technical, and one T Level is equivalent to 3 A Levels. Like A Levels the courses are run over a two year period, but students spend 20% of their time on an “industry placement” with an employer.
The first T Level Celebrations Week will be taking place from July 4-8.
Laura’s experience in children’s service and dementia care in Northamptonshire, means she has a breadth of understanding of what is required by employers. When she joined the Group two years ago as a Work Place Co-ordinator in Health and Social Care she had valuable experience to offer.
She set up a special relationship with Bedford Hospital and a successful T Level partnership.

Leading by example
Now Laura has progressed to be a Health and Social Care Lecturer at Tresham College, part of the Group, and lead on Health T Level industry placements.
“I was recognised for ‘leading by example’ and sit in Ambassador meetings with Principals and CEOs, but The Bedford College Group is showing others the way with industry placements in many cases.”
T Level courses on offer via The Bedford College Group include:
- Business & Administration
- Engineering & Manufacturing
- Health & Science
