T Levels, Level 3

T Level Technical Qualification in Digital Services (Computing)

The core element of a T Level in Digital Support & Services will boost your knowledge in a range of topics such as programming, coding, the use of data and the different platforms of delivery in the digital industry. It’s a cutting-edge subject, so you’ll also learn about the potential security risks that organisations can face and how to analyse problems and identify solutions through computer programs.

You’ll then choose a specialism designed to support your interests, so you can get deeper into your chosen subject and build up the skills you need for your future job. You can choose from specialist modules in either Digital Infrastructure, Network Cabling or Digital Support.

Then you’ll be able to put everything you learn into practice, with a substantial industry placement of around 45 days. Giving you an amazing opportunity to work with an employer while you study, such as an IT company or department, and gain invaluable experience as well as key skills that employers are looking for.
