Getting to Grips with T-Levels

We’re really excited to be one of the first colleges in the country to deliver the brand new T-Level qualifications. T-Levels are designed in collaboration with employers so you get real, hands-on experience and build a relationship with some of the biggest names in the industry, fast-tracking your future. 

The first T-Level course we’re running is Software Development

Running in Birmingham, Bristol, Manchester and Norwich in September 21, this course has been created to teach you how to programme in languages such as C#, Java and Python, as well as HTML, CSS and Javascript, all of which are keystones of the software industry. 

Alongside giving you the core knowledge to succeed, we’ll also delve into logical thinking and algorithms, software testing, data science, physical, virtual and cloud computing systems, project management, VR, AI and other emerging technologies and so, so much more. 

Rest assured, knowing that you’re working on industry relevant, cutting-edge projects that matter in the real-world. We’ll also cover Windows and MacOS, Android and iOS, gaming applications and web applications, just to make sure that you have every tool we can give to you over two years. 

After you’ve finished, you can go onto university with up to 168 UCAS points under your belt, apply for a Level 4 apprenticeship for even more of that great blend of hands-on employer experience and study, or you can go and begin your coding career!
