T Level Engineering and Manufacturing: Manufacturing, Processing and Control (September 2023 Start)
T Levels will give 16-19 year old learners the technical knowledge and
practical skills that are valued by the industry. They follow immediately after
GCSEs as a technical alternative to A-Levels. They are the biggest reform to
vocational training in a generation, giving learners the skills, knowledge, and
attitude to excel in the engineering sector.
The T Level programme includes the following compulsory elements:
- Core engineering theory, concepts and skills;
- Specialist engineering skills and knowledge;
- Industry placement with an engineering employer;
- A minimum standard in maths and English if learners have not already achieved them at the start of their T Levels.

After The Course
You have several progression options which include the following:
- Employment in an engineering company with the potential to earn up to £24,000, which could rise as high as £36,000 upon the completion of further training, qualifications and development.
- Employment as an engineering apprentice with the potential to earn up to £28,000 during your apprenticeship.
- Progress on to the BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Advanced Manufacturing Engineering. Completion of this qualification gives you the potential to earn up to 168 UCAS points which is equivalent to A levels. Upon completion of this 'top-up' year you would have these additional progression opportunities:
- Study an engineering related subject at a higher level either at our University Centre or a university of your choosing.
