T Levels: Engineering

Starting September 2022, our engineering T Level will get you ready for an exciting and challenging career in manufacturing, processing and control roles.

What's different about T Level?

Your T Level comprises three parts:

  • Campus-based learning. You'll enjoy a curriculum designed by employers to make sure the skills you learn are applicable in your career. You'll spend 80% of your course in a range of dynamic study environments that feel like a real workplace.
  • Industry placement. You'll spend a minimum of 315 hours (45 days) in the workplace putting into practice what you've learned on campus, and gaining practical insights you'll find invaluable in your first job.
  • English, maths and digital skills. These are essential in helping you get ready for work - and making you a versatile asset to your employer.

One T Level is the equivalent UCAS points to 3 A Levels. So once you've completed your course you'll be ready for a degree apprenticeship or other higher education programmes.

Alternatively, you might want to get straight into work.
