Business, Management and Leadership, T Level
This course provides a solid foundation for a successful career in business management and leadership, equipping you with the knowledge and skills necessary to lead teams, make informed business decisions, and drive organisational success. The T Level offers a practical and hands-on approach to various subjects including strategic planning, team management, decision-making, financial management, and communication skills. You will develop leadership qualities and practical management skills that are highly valued in the business world.
T Levels are designed to provide a technical alternative to A Levels and are developed in collaboration with employers, ensuring that courses meet industry demands and equip students with the precise skills valued by employers in specific sectors. These two-year courses are equivalent to three A Levels, illustrating the depth of learning involved. One of the distinguishing features of T Levels is the minimum 45-day industry placement, allowing students to gain practical experience and develop essential employability skills. With their unique blend of classroom learning and on-the-job experience, T Levels offer students a clear pathway to rewarding careers in their chosen fields.
