Course Overview

We are delighted to be delivering the first wave of T Level qualifications in Digital: Digital production, Design and Development from September 2020.

This is a two year course which has been developed in collaboration with employers and businesses to ensure that the content meets the needs of industry and prepares students for work. It is a level 3 qualification equivalent to 3 A Levels.

More than 200 businesses, including Fujitsu, Skanska, and GlaxoSmithKline as well as many small and medium sized firms, have helped design the course content to make sure young people taking T Levels are equipped with the knowledge and skills that employer’s value.
