City & Guilds in partnership with EAL have been awarded to be the delivery partner for the Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education (The Institute) to develop the new T Level Technical Qualifications (TQs) in Engineering and Manufacturing.
The development of the TQs is underway, with first teaching of these new qualifications to take place from September 2022.
The three TQs we are developing are:
- Design and Development
- Maintenance, Installation and Repair
- Manufacturing, Processing and Control
We are currently looking for employers to review our developing content to make sure they are fit for purpose and will equip learners with all the skills and knowledge they need to be a valuable member of your workforce.
What are T Levels?
T Levels are new courses which follow GCSEs and are equivalent to 3 A levels. These two-year courses, first launched in September 2020, have been developed in collaboration with employers and providers so that the content meets the needs of industry and prepares learners for work, further training or study.
T Levels offer learners a combination of classroom learning and ‘on-the-job’ experience during an industry placement of at least 315 hours (approximately 45 days). T Levels are based on the same standards as apprenticeships and will be approved by the institute and accredited by Ofqual.
As we get ready for T Level delivery, we’re collaborating with employers on developing the TQs, and we’d also value your input.
There is an opportunity to get involved in 3 areas, including:
• The development of assessment which will detail how the qualification assessments will be designed and delivered
• The review and validation of the TQs and the sample assessments have the correct level of coverage and are suitably aligned to industry.
