Course information

T Level in Digital Production, Design & Development is a new and exciting Two-year, technical study program, designed with employers to combine learning in the classroom with gaining on-the-job experience.

The course will prepare you for employment in the Digital sector. Your program of study will include:

  • Technical knowledge and skills for your industry or occupation
  • An industry placement of 315 hours with an employer
  • Relevant math, English and digital skills

This course is very demanding and is suitable for the very best candidates who wish to pursue a highly sought career in software design and development.

The core element of this course will allow you to develop your knowledge and understanding of a broad range of topics such as

  • Programming
  • Emerging issues and impact of digital
  • Problem solving
  • Coding
  • Legislation and regulatory requirements
  • Business context

T levels are equivalent to three A-levels and will help you boost your employment prospects by gaining extensive experience on a work placement in a real work environment.

This course will help you to progress onto a range of digital development careers, as well as progressing onto higher education or apprenticeships.

How does the T-Level differ from a BTEC?

Whilst most BTEC courses offer general knowledge and skills for subject areas, T-Levels are more specialista and focused on strands, such as software, applications and the web.

Whilst you will still do work experience on a BTEC course and get a general work-placement experience, on a T-Level course you have occupational competencies that form part of your assessment so that you can rigorously develop those skills through working in the industry.

Although T-Levels will not stop you from going into a degree course, they are mainly aimed at young people who are looking to progress into employment upon successful completion of their course
