Students at Derby College have become some of the first students in the country to begin studying for a T Level qualification.
As the pathfinder institution for D2N2, Derby College now offers three T levels in Digital, Construction, and Education.
In total 24 T Levels will be rolled out in subjects as diverse as accounting and digital, to agriculture and healthcare.
T Levels are central to the Government’s plans to improve technical and vocational education and address the skills gap.
With content designed by more than 250 employers, these new high-quality technical qualifications follow GCSEs and will deliver a pipeline of young people aged 16-19 with the skills, knowledge, and workplace experience that businesses need.
These rigorous 2-year courses are based on the world’s best technical education systems and combine classroom learning with a substantial industry placement.
