City and Guilds – T-Levels
From September 2022 there will be an opportunity for students to undertake a T Level Technical Qualification within Engineering and Manufacturing. T-Levels are two-year course, which are being developed by City and Guilds in collaboration with employers so that the content meets the needs of industry and prepares the learners for the world of work.

City and Guilds are developing three path wards within engineering and manufacturing, as follows:

  • Engineering and Manufacturing: Manufacturing, Processing and Control.
  • Engineering and Manufacturing: Maintenance, Installation and Repair.
  • Engineering and Manufacturing: Design and Development.

The MTA sits on the Engineering and Manufacturing Employer Industry Board (EIB) at City and Guilds and can input directly into the development of the Engineering and Manufacturing T-Levels.
Further information about the Engineering and Manufacturing T-Levels can be found here:
