Course Overview

The T Level Foundation is a steppingstone specifically set up for learners who have fallen short of the entry requirements to enter the full T Levels Technical Qualification. It is a custom-designed programme fitting the equivalent of a Level 2 qualification but taking alongside vendor qualifications to further prepare learners for the rich depth of content the T Level Technical qualification presents. It is a mixture of classroom learning and online vendor courses to boost technical knowledge for learners.

Qualification Gained

Successful completion of this T Level Foundation programme will lead to the award of a nationally recognised Technical Diploma in Digital Technologies plus additional vendor certificates from Cisco. This enables learners to acquire strong technical knowledge and IT configuration skills for network devices to harness their progression to the actual T Levels Digital Production programme.
