Digital Production, Design and Development – T Level Technical Qualification in Digital

The T Level in Digital Production, Design and Development is a two year Level 3 qualification for those who want to develop the software applications of the future. The course is designed to advance your understanding and knowledge of topics such as programming, coding, the use of data, and different delivery platforms in the digital industry.

During the course, students will learn the core knowledge and skills needed for entry into a range of digital occupations. The course includes an industry placement were you will be expected to work within industry alongside taught sessions within a college setting.
The core content of the course helps students understand data and digital systems, how software and business interact, security, testing, planning, and legal issues. Students then build on this by developing specialist skills in understanding user needs and designing and developing digital systems.

This course is suitable for anyone wanting a career in software production and design. Students can progress into roles such as web developer, web designer, software developer, computer games tester, computer games developer, e-learning developer, and user experience (UX) designer. Students can also use this T Level to do a related higher-level apprenticeship or degree course.

What you will learn

During the course, students will learn the core knowledge and skills needed for entry into a range of digital occupations whilst developing deeper knowledge and skills on the following key areas;

• Analysing a problem to define requirements and acceptance criteria aligned to user needs
• Designing, implementing and testing software
• Changing, maintaining and supporting software
• Creating solutions in a social and collaborative environment
• Discovering, evaluating and applying reliable sources of knowledge
• Applying ethical principles and managing risks in line with legal and regulatory requirements when developing software.

Entry requirements

5 GCSEs 9-4* including maths and English or Relevant Level 2 technical qualification / Transition Programme*

Assessment

Assessments are conducted using a wide variety of methods enabling you to showcase your practical skills and understanding of the subject area. You will be assessed through written and practical examinations, employer projects, group work, presentations and analysis. This could involve technology projects, individual research, group work, project work and performance support. On successful completion of the course, you will receive a qualification equivalent to three A Levels.

The practical assessments have been developed in accordance with the needs of employers and our local industry in order to provide the best opportunity for progression.

As part of this programme you will also gain extensive occupational experience on an external industry placement in conjunction with a local employer. An industry placement is a core component of the T Level offering as it represents 20% of the overall programme. Achievement of the industry placement and working with an appropriate employer for the requisite hours is essential for achievement and awarding of the final qualification.

During the industry placement, you need to complete between 315 and 420 hours across the two years, which will fit around your in-class studies.
