Extensive curriculum for any digital career

Corepic.png

All digital T Levels start with 'Digital Core' of which  occupation pathways share many topics in common.

Students will study a huge range of content about the digital environment and business to give them a better understanding of the context working in the digital sector.

The Occupational Specialism units make up the remaining 50% of the course and are started towards the end of year 1. The topics above are a sample of the kind of content that will be covered. However, being equivalent to 3 A Levels means the content is vast and will also be adapted to meet local industry need so students' skills are in demand upon qualifying.

Final preparations for this are currently in development including choosing which four coding languages for the software developer route.
