Engineering T Level

Level 3 - Advanced

Engineering T Level

This course is suitable for anyone wanting a career in engineering. There are two pathways for the engineering technical component:-

  • Maintenance engineering technologies: Mechanical
  • Maintenance engineering technologies: Control

This is a two-year program, developed to meet the requirements of industry that prepares you for employment within your chosen discipline.

Industry placements are intended to provide students with the opportunity to develop the knowledge, skills and behaviours required for skilled employment in their chosen occupation and which are less easily attainable by completing a qualification alone. As part of achieving the overall T Level programme, students are required to complete a 315 – 350 hours (45 – 50 days) industry placement. Industrial experience will be a real industrial experience further developing the practical skills developed during the lesson.
