Career Opportunities & Further Study
What are the career opportunities?
Careers are wide and varied in the engineering sector, the may include the following: mechanical engineer, aerospace engineer, electrical engineer, engineering operative, lift engineer, manufacturing systems engineer, mechanical engineer or lighting engineer and many more.
What are the progression routes available?
T Levels will provide several progression options to students. These include skilled employment, an apprenticeship and going into higher education.
To help T Level students get into higher education, UCAS tariff points will be allocated to T Levels.
UCAS points will only be allocated to the overall T Level grade. Students must achieve at least an overall pass grade to receive UCAS points.
How is the course structured and how will I be assessed?
The T Level programme includes the following compulsory elements:
- a Technical Qualification (TQ), which includes: core theory, concepts and skills for an industry area
- an industry placement with an employer
- a minimum standard in maths and English if learners have not already achieved them at the start of their T Levels
The T Level assessment combines examinations in the core skills, with a practical skills test for the occupational specialisms developed in practice.
Assessments come in different forms, giving you the opportunity to develop key skills and behaviours tailored to your employment. Group work, portfolios, and practical projects set by employers are just a few of the many ways you can show how your knowledge has developed.
What are the entry requirements?
5 GCSE’s grade 4 – 9 must include Maths and English Language at Grade 4 – 9 and preferably Science,
