What is a T Level?
T Levels are a brand new two year qualification designed to give you a head start towards the career you want. They have been designed for 16 to 19-year-olds and offer a mixture of classroom learning and work placement. They follow GCSEs, gain you UCAS points and are equivalent to three A Levels.
This T Level has been developed with employers and businesses to prepare you to step straight into your chosen career, an apprenticeship or university.
About the course…
The core element of a T Level in Digital Production, Design and Development will boost your knowledge in a range of topics such as programming, coding, the use of data, and the different platforms of delivery in the digital industry. It’s a cutting-edge subject, so you will also learn about the potential security risks that organisations can face and how to analyse problems and identify solutions through computer programs.
You will then move on to the subject specialism, so you can get deeper into the specifics and build up the skills you need for your future job. You will work on problem solving, developing solutions
