T Levels are new courses which will follow GCSEs and are equivalent to studying three A Levels. These two-year courses have been developed in collaboration with employers and businesses so that the content meets the needs of industry and prepares learners for work.
This qualification is for you if you are a 16-18 year old learner, who wishes to work within one of the varied sectors of Engineering including the Automotive sector.
The new T level qualification goes beyond an introduction to the Automotive industry, the structure and content of the qualification means you also gain an understanding of the links with and core competencies of the engineering sector as well.
You will cover core topics such as: Maintenance, installation and repair requirements, Fault detection and diagnosis, Communication for maintenance, installation and repair activities.
As an Automotive T level learner you will also be studying the standalone Occupational Specialism of light and electric vehicles
T level Occupational Specialisms develop the knowledge, skills and behaviours necessary to achieve threshold competence in an occupation. Threshold competence is defined as when a learner’s attainment against the knowledge, skills and behaviours is of a standard for them to enter the occupation and industry. They must also demonstrate the ability to achieve occupational competence over time with the correct support and training.
Our Automotive faculty ensure your qualification content is as current as possible to prepare you for your career in this sector. We do this by working with a number of local employers who will be contributing throughout the course to the knowledge and delivery of training.
Local and regional Employers will also provide opportunities for demonstrations and talks on the industry, site visits and where possible experience of work, will also be provided by these employers.
