About the course

The world is changing rapidly, offering great opportunities but also challenges. To overcome these and ensure the human race continues to thrive, we need highly skilled people to help develop our engineering manufacturing industries.

This T Level will give you a solid foundation that will allow you to progress into a number of areas in engineering and manufacturing. 

T Levels are a brand-new qualification designed to give you a head start towards the future you want. They follow GCSEs and are equivalent to three A Levels.

This two-year T Level qualification brings classroom and work placement together on a course designed with employers and businesses.

You’ll spend 80% of your time in the classroom and 20% on a 45-day placement to give you the skills and knowledge employers are looking for.

Your T Level will help you to step straight into your chosen career, an Apprenticeship or a degree.

What you'll learn

The qualification will help you gain an understanding of the engineering industry and you will cover topics such as:

  • maintenance, installation and repair requirements
  • fault detection and diagnosis
  • isolation and resolution methods
  • communication for maintenance, installation and repair activities.

You will also have the choice of studying one standalone occupational specialism as listed below:

  • mechatronic
  • control and instrumentation
  • light and electric vehicles.
