T Level Technical Qualification in Motor Vehicle - MK College

T Level: Maintenance Installation and Repair  

Home > Courses > Motor Vehicle > T Level Technical Qualification in Motor Vehicle


T Levels are a new two-year, Level 3 study programme that will follow the study of GCSEs and Technical Awards at Key Stage 4 and offer an attractive alternative to A Levels and Apprenticeships. T Levels will combine classroom theory, practical learning and a minimum 315 hours of industry placement with an employer to make sure students have real experience of the workplace. The Technical Qualification (TQ) is the main classroom-based element of the T Level and will see students learning from a curriculum that has been shaped by industry experts. During the two-year programme, students will learn the core knowledge that underpins each industry, and they will also develop occupationally specific skills that will allow them to enter skilled employment within a specific occupation. 

Please note: T Levels are only available for students that will be 16-18 whilst studying the qualification.
