T Levels are new courses that follow GCSEs and are equivalent to three A Levels. They’ve been co-created by the industry you want to be a part of, so you can gain the knowledge and skills you need to leap ahead of the crowd and into your desired career. T Levels are new to East Coast College and Lowestoft Sixth Form College, and will be starting in September 2022.

The core element of a T Level in Digital Production, Design and Development will boost your knowledge in a range of topics such as programming, coding, the use of data, and the different platforms of delivery in the digital industry. It’s a cutting-edge subject, so you will also learn about potential security risks that organisations can face and how to analyse problems ad identify solutions through computer programs.

You will then move on to the subject specialism, so you can get deeper into the specifics and build up the skills you need for your future job. You will work on problem solving, developing solutions within a collaborative environment and learn how to change, maintain and support software.

Then you will be able to put everything you learn into practice, with a substantial industry placement for a minimum of 315 hours. This will give you an amazing opportunity to work with an employer while you study, such as a software or IT company, and gain invaluable experience as well as key skills that employers are looking for.

Requirements

You will need to have achieved two 5s and three 4s at GCSE including at least a 4 in English Language and Maths.

Progression

Following a T Level, you could progress straight into a skilled profession or continue your studies with a degree or higher apprenticeship. Career options might include Software, Web or Games Development – our career advisors can help you choose the right path.
