Level 3 Transition Programme

Course Overview

The T Level Transition Programme (Digital) is a new type of 16 to 19 study programme.

Designed to develop the skills, experience, knowledge and behaviours to support successful progression onto a T Level in either Digital: Software Development, Infrastructure or Support Services.

It is targeted at students who are not yet ready to start a Level 3 T Level but have the potential to progress onto one following a tailored preparation programme. The T Level Transition Programme is a full-time study programme lasting up to a standard academic year in almost all cases.


I found this college’s environment and staff to be supportive, providing me with a second chance to improve my grades. They guided me in selecting the right subjects, including GCSE Maths, and suggested the creative pathway for my future studies. Adapting quickly, I felt at ease and able to express myself freely. Whether studying at the LRC on the second floor or the Social Space on the first floor, these spaces helped me concentrate and focus on my studies. Overall, this college has been a welcoming and supportive home for my academic journey.

The T Level Transition programme (Digital) will develop the introductory technical skills through a technical qualification at Level 2.
