T-Level Design and Development (Electrical and Electronic Engineering)


Course details may be subject to change

Designed with employers, professional bodies, universities and businesses, this two-year T-Level in Design and Development for Electrical and Electronic Engineering will prepare you for a career in the electrical engineering industry, or to go on to do a higher level apprenticeship or degree.

You will spend 80% of your time at college where you will develop a broad range of core skills from across the whole sector. In addition to this, 20% of your time will be spent with an employer where you will engage in an industry placement in a relevant organisation, giving you hands-on experience in a real-life setting.

This T-Level is a technical qualification that includes the following compulsory elements:

  • Core theory, concepts and skills for the chosen sector

  • Specialist skills and knowledge for an occupation or career

  • An industry placement with an employer which runs for a minimum of 315 hours (45 days) overall and gives you practical insights into the sector and an opportunity to embed the knowledge and skills learned in the classroom

  • A minimum standard in English, maths and digital provision are also built into the classroom-based element of the T-Level, meaning you will be given a solid foundation of transferable skills.

Topics covered include customer and client requirements, principles of design, design processes and communication in design.

This two-year T-Level in Design and Development for Electrical Engineering will prepare you with the fundamental knowledge and practical skills required for working in the electrical and electronic engineering industry.

The course is designed for school leavers (aged 16) and is an ideal qualification if you are intending to progress directly to employment within the industry, to an apprenticeship or to higher education.
