T-Levels are a brand new type of qualification designed to give young people a new two-year, full-time study vocational programme equivalent to 3 A Levels. These new qualifications bring classroom learning and an extended industry placement together on a course designed with businesses and employers, helping prepare students to meet the needs of industry and work. The Digital T-Level course is for students who wish to progress into skilled IT employment or higher-level technical training or study.
The main area of study covers:
Design and Development
Employer set project
Industry placement within the industry
This T-Level has been developed in collaboration with employers so the content meets the needs of industry, preparing students for the workplace.
There will be a mixture of classroom-based teaching and learning and ‘on-the-job' learning as the course involves at least 315 hours (approximately 45 days) of Industrial Placement.
This new qualification provides the essential knowledge, understanding and skills relevant to any digital occupation. You'll learn about the value of digital technology and gain an understanding of customer and commercial needs, alongside the ethical and moral issues raised by the increasing reliance on technology and its impact on culture, autonomous operations and addiction. Use of physical, virtual and Cloud digital environments, emerging technology trends and the application of tools and testing to influence innovation, algorithms and usability are a key part of the course.
