How SFC will help you to boost your CV by developing your skills and qualifications…

Students taking the T Level Digital: Digital Production, Design and Development will gain the skills, knowledge and experience needed to progress to highly skilled em-ployment, higher level study or an apprenticeship.
The Stoke 6th Graduate Attributes will be developed and enhanced during this course. Resilience, independent of thought, communication skills, problem solving skills and the contribution of creative ideas will all be encouraged throughout the T Level Digital: Digital Production, Design and Development course.

industry placement

Industry placement is a mandatory part of the T Level course and full certification of the T Level will not be possible without completing the industry placement. The industry placement is substantially longer than the traditional work experience and so should be significantly beneficial to you and the employer. You are expected to gain substantial technical training as required through your industry placement.
