Course Information for Students

If you are considering a career in the management and administration sector, then this is the qualification for you.

With a huge focus on vocational skills designed to help you into skilled employment, higher education or an apprenticeship, T Levels in Business are new courses to be introduced in September 2022. 

As an alternative to A-levels, apprenticeships and other 16-19 courses, T Levels are equivalent to three A-levels and include a mix of classroom learning and ‘on-the-job’ in-depth experience via an industry placement of at least 315 hours (approximately 45 days).  This not only gives you valuable work experience but also gives employers an insight into a new talent pipeline.

T Levels are based on the same standards as apprenticeships, designed by employers and approved by the Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education.  You will study over two years and develop the core knowledge and skills that are essential for progressing to a range of management and administration occupations.

As part of this programme, you will participate in tutorial sessions and join our Business Employment and Skills Academy which has outstanding links with – and support from – businesses operating in different sectors.

The T Level in Management and Administration – Team Leadership/Management pathway, provides you with the invaluable opportunity to put your learning, knowledge, and skills into practice in a real workplace environment. Industry placements also give employers a unique opportunity to develop new talent and help you become work ready.  With core studies that cover; the business context, people, business behaviours, quality and compliance,  finance principles, policies and procedures as well as project and change management, this programme will fully prepare you for employment, apprenticeship or higher education. 

The Team Leadership/Management occupational specialism will allow you to build on the skills, knowledge, and behaviours from the core studies and develop these within the specialism of Team Leadership/Management.

For more information on T Levels, please visit https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/introduction-of-t-levels/introduction-of-t-levels

You need to be highly motivated and demonstrate a keen personal interest in pursuing a career in business and management.   An offer of a place on the course will depend on your qualifications and a successful interview. You will need one of the following:

  • A minimum of five GCSEs at grade 4 or above, including English (5) and Maths (5).
  • A Level 2 vocational qualification or equivalent in a related subject, such as Business or Business Administration, to a Merit or Distinction grade. The candidate should also have GCSE English and Maths at grade 4 or above.

The course will feature a technical qualification which will include:

Year 1 

  • Core content, business and commercial awareness, project management, communication, working collaboratively, problem solving, research and reflective practice.  Maths, English and Digital Skills are mapped across the core content.

Year 2 – Specialist pathway

  • Team Leadership/Management

This course will be delivered on-site at the Roundhouse.

Every T Level will include an industry placement with an employer, focused on developing the practical and technical skills required for the occupation. These will last a minimum of 315 hours (approximately 45 days) but can last longer. Employers can offer industry placements as block release, day release or a mix of these, and can discuss sharing part of the placement with another employer if necessary.

The purchase of appropriate books and e-books is encouraged and guidance on which books to purchase will be given by subject specialists. There may also be a request for contributions to trips and visits as part of our Employment and Skills Academy activities.

  • Two externally set exams covering knowledge from the Management and Administration core content
  • One employer-set project covering knowledge and skills from the Management and Administration core content
  • One externally set assignment covering content from the occupational specialism

Students who pass all the elements of their T Level will gain a nationally recognised certificate showing an overall grade of Pass, Merit or Distinction. It will also set out the details of what students have achieved on the course.

The T Level Certificate will include:

  • an overall pass grade for the T Level, shown as Pass, Merit or Distinction
  • a separate grade for the occupational specialism, shown as Pass, Merit or Distinction
  • a separate grade for the core component, using grades A* to E
  • details of the industry placement

Further Study

This course allows for progression to an appropriate Level 4, 5 or 6 Business or Business-related qualification.

A T Level is a nationally recognised qualification that is worth the same number of UCAS points as three A-levels.

Alternatively, and with employment in a qualifying role, progression to a Higher or Degree Apprenticeship in the appropriate specialist pathway could be possible.
