Overview

Digital Support Services (T LEVEL)

T Levels provide learners with the knowledge, skills and behaviours needed to progress into skilled employment or higher level technical training or study in the digital sector. The core knowledge and understanding will be assessed through an examination and core skills through a practical employer-set project. You will learn how digital skills are fundamental to businesses, digital infrastructure, networking, unified communications, fault finding and cyber-security. The second aspect of the course will be an extended work placement where you will gain on the job technical skills relevant to your course.

T Level qualifications have been created alongside employers. Students will gain work place specific skills and training through a long term industry placement. A T Level is a two year course which is equivalent to three A Levels. It attracts UCAS points and enables you to progress into a skilled occupation, higher or degree level apprenticeships or higher education.
