"The Digital T Level has set me on the path to achieving my aspiration to work in the digital industry. My industry placement will teach me skills you can’t learn in a classroom environment and will fast-track me into a digital career.  The T Level course was definitely the right choice for me and my future". - Thomas Corbett, upper sixth student



What do I need to study a T-Level?

You will need five GCSEs at grade 5 including GCSE English Language and Maths.

What are T Levels?

Notre Dame has been selected as one of the first providers of the new T Level qualifications starting from September 2020. The introduction of T Levels will see a state-of-the-art, purpose built ‘digital hub’ at Notre Dame. It will feature industry standard technology enabling us to provide a world class educational opportunity for students who are passionate about the digital world.

T Levels will follow GCSEs and will be equivalent to 3 A Levels. These 2-year courses have been developed in collaboration with employers and businesses so that the content meets the needs of industry and prepares students for work.

From September 2020, we will be introducing the T Level in Digital: Digital Production, Design and Development followed by a T Level in health and science from September 2021 for students wishing to pursue a career in the health and science sector.

What will I study?

You will gain knowledge and practical skills that will help you complete the assessments and prepare you for working in the Digital World. In the Core Component, you’ll learn about topics including: digital environments, legislation, testing and data. In the Occupational Specialism Component, you’ll develop the skills to prepare you for your career in digital production, design and development. In both components, coding will be at the centre and a minimum of 10 hours per week will be allocated to improving their coding.

What next?

T-Levels will provide the knowledge and experience needed to open the door into skilled employment. Achieving this qualification will give you an advantage when applying for a job (in software production and design) in the digital industry or when progressing to further study. T Levels will prepare you to progress onto further technical training, such as a higher apprenticeship or degree.
