Cheshire College set to fast track learners’ careers with the next level qualification

Cheshire College – South & West is the only College in Cheshire set to fast track learners’ careers with the next level qualification.

The College was chosen by the Government to offer the following T Levels from September 2021:

  • Construction
  • Digital
  • Science and Health
  • Education and Childcare

In addition, the College will also be offering the following T Levels from September 2022:

  • Management and Administration
  • Design and Development
  • Manufacturing, Processing and Control
  • Maintenance, Installation and Repair

The College will be amongst the first to introduce the new technical qualifications, which are primarily aimed at learners aged 16 to 18 years.

T Levels are part of the Government’s flagship reforms to technical education in England. During the two-year programme, learners will spend 80% of their time learning and honing their skills within industry standard workshops and state-of-the-art classrooms. An additional 20% will be spent on an industrial placement with an employer.

Dhesi, Principal and CEO, commented: “We are delighted to be delivering T Levels from September 2021. Providing young people with the right skills and experience to succeed in their future careers is more important than ever, and T Levels will play a vital role in vocational learning.”

The two-year qualifications will become one of the main options for learners after completing their GCSEs, alongside Vocational pathways, A Levels and Apprenticeships.
