The Manufacturing Technologies T Level is suitable for anyone wanting a career in Manufacturing. This qualification will include a core content and an occupational specialism that is specific to the industry.
During the two year course, learners will learn the core knowledge and skills that underpin many jobs in manufacturing. A substantial industry placement with a range of employers will give you a wide understanding of the industry.
The technical qualification is made up of two components all of which need to be successfully achieved to attain the technical qualification as well as the full T Level Technical Qualification in Engineering, Manufacturing, Processing and Control (Level 3).
THE T LEVEL IN MANUFACTURING TECHNOLOGIES WILL INCLUDE
The common core content is designed to offer a sufficient breadth of knowledge and skills for the learner to apply in a variety of contexts related to the engineering industry and the occupational specialisms linked to this T Level.
The common core content is the building blocks of knowledge and skills that will give a learner a broad understanding of the industry and job roles. At the same time, it will develop the core skills they will need to apply when working within the industry.
The occupational specialism component (Fabrication & Welding) will develop the knowledge, skills and behaviours necessary to achieve threshold competence in an occupation. Threshold competence is defined as when a learner’s attainment against the knowledge, skills and behaviours is of a standard for them to enter the occupation and industry. They must also demonstrate the ability to achieve occupational competence over time with the correct support and training.
