T Level in Digital Production, Design and Development

By 14th December 2020IT & Computing

From September 2021, we are offering students the chance to study for a brand new, two-year qualification; T Level in Production, Design and Development. The course is a fantastic choice for students who are interested in pursuing a career in the IT/Digital sector.

The Digital Industry is a major source of employment in the UK, with 1.46 million people working in digital companies and around 45,000 digital jobs advertised at any one time. Digital skills span all industries; almost all jobs in the UK today require employees to have a good level of digital literacy. The UK has positioned itself to be the ‘digital capital of Europe’ as it continues to invest billions every year in digital skills and commerce.

This qualification has been developed in consultation with employers in the digital industry to ensure you learn the skills and behaviours that will give you the best opportunity to be successful when applying for work.
The core component provides a broad understanding of the digital industry and covers the following digital-related topics:

• Business Context
• Culture
• Data
• Digital Analysis
• Digital Environments
• Diversity and Inclusion
• Learning
• Legislation
• Security
• Testing

Guy Martinson, Curriculum Director at Wyke comments: “T Level qualifications are really exciting because of the employer links and up to date skills you will develop throughout the time on the qualification. T Levels will particularly benefit learners who want to work in the digital industry and will be advantageous in making links with industry placement providers that could become future employers.”

“These qualifications are very different to anything else available, and will develop skills at the very forefront of the digital sector, placing you in a strong position to gain a job in the sector over other pathways available.”
