This T Level is a Level 3 programme in, Engineering & Manufacturing, specialising in Electrical and Electronic Engineering. This is the course for you if you're looking to work in the Electrical and Electronic Engineering industry, and is supported in its design and delivery by a consortium of Industry Partners.

This is a two-year course which is delivered by both college teachers and industry experts through a variety of means. It takes place in purpose-built, industry-standard engineering facilities at our Openshaw campus.

You will regularly interact with people from the industry, both inside and outside the classroom/workshops. This is done via guest speakers and industry experts visiting and taking your classes, employer set projects, site visits and relevant field trips and via your Industry Placements on live sites out in the world of work.

Class sizes are kept intentionally small (12 max) to support accelerated learning. They use high quality materials and resources developed in partnership with our employers. Elements of the programme will be delivered digitally, so reducing the hours that you will physically need to be in class, giving you the chance to develop independent learning skills and own your learning.

You will be assigned an employability specialist tutor to support you with your programme and progression towards readiness for the world of work.
