  • 1 Study type
  • 2 Your Interests
  • 3 Your Grades
Question 1

How would you prefer to study?

Question 2

What are your interests?

Question 3

What grades have you achieved or are predicted?

These results are a suggestion of courses you may want to explore but are by no means a definitive list and individual entry requirements do apply.

T-Level in Building Services Engineering for Construction (Electrical Installation)

Practical Vs Theory


Course overview

This course is suit­able for any­one want­i­ng a career in con­struc­tion, specif­i­cal­ly in Elec­trotech­ni­cal Engi­neer­ing. This course offers you an attrac­tive alter­na­tive to A Lev­els and appren­tice­ships. An indus­try-based work place­ment is required to run along­side your course and will fur­ther rein­force your new­ly learned skills and offer a true insight into the con­struc­tion industry.


Entry Require­ments

4 GCSEs at grades 4/C or above includ­ing Engish and Maths (or Func­tion­al Skills at Lev­el 2) and grade 4/C or above in either a sci­ence or design tech­nol­o­gy based subject. 

Stu­dents who have achieved a lev­el 2 Diplo­ma in Elec­tri­cal will be con­sid­ered for this T lev­el if they have achieved Maths and Eng­lish to Grade 4/C or above. 

You must demon­strate a min­i­mum of 90% atten­dance at your last place of work or study. 

If you don’t meet these require­ments but want to start on your cho­sen career path, entry require­ments for Foun­da­tion Pro­grammes are slight­ly low­er. You will need a min­i­mum Grade 3 in Eng­lish (lan­guage) and a Grade 4 in maths, plus two oth­er GCSEs at grade 3 or above. If you don’t meet these foun­da­tion entry require­ments, a Lev­el 1 course may be an option for you, 4 GCSEs at grade 3 or above, includ­ing Eng­lish and maths. 

We will review each appli­ca­tion case-by-case to ensure you get a place on the most suit­able course.

Poten­tial Future Career

This tech­ni­cal qual­i­fi­ca­tion focus­es on the devel­op­ment of knowl­edge and skills need­ed for work­ing in the Build­ing ser­vices Engi­neer­ing indus­try, which will pre­pare you to enter the indus­try through employ­ment or as an Apprentice.Successful com­ple­tion of this course accrues UCAS points and a num­ber of major UK uni­ver­si­ties accept T Lev­els. Please see points achieved by grades below.T Lev­el Dis­tinc­tion* = 168 UCAS Tar­iff Points = A*A*A* at A Lev­elT Lev­el Dis­tinc­tion = 144 UCAS Tar­iff Points = AAA at A Lev­elT Lev­el Mer­it = 120 UCAS Tar­iff Points = BBB at A Lev­elT Lev­el Pass (C or above) = 96 UCAS Tar­iff Points = CCC at A Lev­elT Lev­el Pass (D or E) = 72 UCAS Tar­iff Points = DDD at A Lev­el­Due to the high-lev­el aca­d­e­m­ic nature of the T‑Level and the con­sid­er­able indus­try place­ment ele­ment totalling a min­i­mum of 315 hours, you will also have the nec­es­sary knowl­edge, skills, and behav­iours to suc­cess­ful­ly progress direct­ly in to spe­cial­ist area of the sci­ence indus­try, or you can progress on to an appren­tice­ship or high­er lev­el study.
