Solihull College & University Centre have been working collaboratively with employers and sector leaders to launch the brand-new T–Level in Digital Production, Design & Development.
T–Levels are new, two-year, technical study programmes, designed with employers to give young people the skills that industries need. The equivalent to 3 A–Levels, T–Levels will provide a mixture of industry specific technical knowledge and a 315–hour industry placement.
The College was selected by the Department for Education as part of the second wave of further education providers who would deliver T-Levels.
The programme will offer a practical route to careers in digital software development. Students will cover areas including business context and environment, emerging technologies, project planning, development, testing of IT systems, use of collaborative technologies and more. Students will then have the chance to choose between moving into further study, such as higher/ degree apprenticeship or university, or going straight into the industry.
Students will spend 4 days each week at the College studying for the qualification and 1 day each week at the industry placement.
Mohammed Maher, Head of School for Computing at the College understands the importance of the new course. He states: “This is a new, exciting qualification, which crucially gives learners the opportunity to work with employers and also study challenging new course content with future employment in mind.”
The T-Level is now open for applications for September 2021. For more information, or to apply, please visit T-Level in Digital Production, Design & Development.
