More about the course 

T Levels are courses for 16 -18 year olds that are studied at the same level as A-Levels.

They are for young people who prefer a more technical education when they come to College, rather than following a purely academic pathway, or a work-based apprenticeship. They are a two-year programme that combine classroom theory, practical learning and a minimum of 45 days industry placement with an employer.

During the two-year programme, you will learn the core knowledge that underpins each industry and will also develop occupationally specific skills that will allow you to enter skilled employment within a specific occupation.

This two-year course has been developed?in collaboration with a number of established employers,?practitioners and providers from across the?sector to advance the technical qualification?that will underpin the media, broadcast?and production skills you will gain and develop. The input from employers is vital to ensuring the technical?qualification reflects the needs required within the sector.
