T Levels, Level 3

T Level Technical Qualification in Digital Support Services

The purpose of the T Level Technical Qualification in Digital Services is to ensure students have the knowledge and skills needed to progress into skilled employment or higher-level technical training relevant to the T Level.

This is a rewarding and challenging course that prepares you for a career working in a Computing/IT environment or for studying a higher level at university.

Whilst studying on the programme the following areas will be covered:

  • Fundamentals of Data
  • Understanding of algorithms and Programming
  • Programming paradigms and abstraction
  • Network Security and connectivity
  • Cloud technology and internet services
  • Internet of things and AI
  • Laws and legislations around Computing businesses
  • Cyber Security
  • Testing Hardware & Software components

As part of achieving the overall T Level programme, you will be required to complete an industry placement. Industry placements are intended to provide students with the opportunity to develop the knowledge, skills and behaviours required for skilled employment in their chosen occupation and which are less easily attainable by completing a qualification alone.

Following a T Level, you could progress straight into a skilled profession or continue your studies with a degree or higher apprenticeship.

This includes:

  • Employment in the IT sector
  • Higher Education at University
  • HNC/D in Computing at Selby College
