Digital T-Level courses are for students who wish to progress into skilled employment within the digital workforce or higher-level technical training or study.
We have on offer two Digital T-Levels:
You will complete a Level 3 Technical Qualification in Digital and an occupational specialism related to your T Level. Included alongside the technical qualification is the completion of an Employer Set Project and an Industrial Placement within a Digital environment.
Digital T-Levels have been developed in collaboration with employers so the content meets the needs of industry, preparing you 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.
Each Digital T-Level covers the same core content in Year 12 which includes:
This is supported by a package of employability and enrichment opportunities to strengthen the core knowledge, skills and behaviours developed during your studies.
In Year 13 you follow your Occupational Specialism, according to the Digital T Level route you have chosen.
In addition to the core content, you will also study
You will develop a wide range of practical skills, particularly with spreadsheets and databases, both in the classroom and on placement.
In addition to the core content you will also study:
At least two 5s and three 4s at GCSE including at least a 4 in English Language and Maths.
NOTE: Completion of a Disclosure and Barring Service Application (DBS) may be required as you may undertake placements in a digital setting that engage with vulnerable people.
There are some main progression routes following the completion of T-Levels. Following the completion of the T-level in Digital, you may go on to:
Skilled employment within the Digital Industry – sourcing, formatting and presenting data
Higher Level apprenticeships at Level 4 and above which may progress you into careers such as a Data Scientist.
Higher education as UCAS points have been awarded to T-Levels, they facilitate progression to Higher Education on a wide range of digitally related degrees such as Computer Information Systems.
