5 GCSEs at grades 4 or above, includ­ing Eng­lish Lan­guage, maths and sci­ence, or a rel­e­vant Lev­el 2 Diplo­ma such as Con­struc­tion and the Built Environment.

How The Course Will Be Assessed

You will study util­is­ing learn­ing resources and mate­ri­als such as:
• schemes of work
• tutor deliv­ery guides
• class­room activ­i­ties
• blend­ed learn­ing activ­i­ties (eLearn­ing)
• tutor deliv­ery guides
• home study tasks

Addi­tion­al Information

Your T Lev­el will include an indus­try place­ment with an employ­er to devel­op the prac­ti­cal and tech­ni­cal skills required for the occu­pa­tion.
We will sup­port you in find­ing rel­e­vant work place­ments but you must demon­strate will­ing­ness to trav­el to your work placements.

These will last a min­i­mum of 315 hours (around 45 days). Employ­ers can offer indus­try place­ments as a block, day release or a com­bi­na­tion of the two.

Poten­tial Future Career

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 Lev­el
T Lev­el Dis­tinc­tion = 144 UCAS Tar­iff Points = AAA at A Lev­el
T Lev­el Mer­it = 120 UCAS Tar­iff Points = BBB at A Lev­el
T Lev­el Pass (C or above) = 96 UCAS Tar­iff Points = CCC at A Lev­el
T Lev­el Pass (D or E) = 72 UCAS Tar­iff Points = DDD at A Level

Due 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 design and sur­vey­ing, or you can progress on to an Appren­tice­ship or high­er lev­el study.

My Brick­lay­ing appren­tice­ship gave me the prac­ti­cal skills I need­ed to step foot into the con­struc­tion indus­try. I was award­ed CiTB’s Inspi­ra­tional Appren­tice of the Year
