Course overview

This course is suitable for anyone aged 16-18 wanting a career in construction, specifically in area of plumbing or heating.

Designed by key employers, T Levels are a brand-new two-year ‘full time’ programme that follow GCSEs and could give you a head start towards the career you want. It’s a smart choice to start your engineering career which keeps your future options open.

A T Level is made up of the following components:

• A common engineering core
• Occupational specialisms in your chosen area
• A mandatory industry placement

• Put your studies into context and practice developing skills in a real work environment
• Gain the experience of being in a workplace setting that lasts at least 45 days
• Check this is the career you want to pursue
• Gain real experience to put on your CV and to talk about at an interview
• Potentially secure a job or apprenticeship with the employer after you have completed your T Level
