T Levels are a exciting alternative to A levels as they offer a work focussed experience which combines academic study of the highest quality with practical industry related skills. In addition to this, T Levels include a 45 day-industry placement that has been built into the course to further develop individual skills. If you wish to work in the construction sector with a focus on Civil Engineering, then this T Level is for you. The T Level is equivalent to 3 A Levels and focuses on vocational skills that can help you obtain skilled employment, university study or an apprenticeship.

Minimum requirements: 5 GCSE's at Grade 9-4 including GCSE English Math and Science.

Successful completion of Jump Starts to T Levels programme is also required.

This qualification will be studied via “blended learning”, taking the very best classroom-based activity and combining it with the very best digital and remote learning and delivery from our industry experts.
Time in college will be spent learning in our brand-new purpose built Openshaw construction centre, in industry standard workshops and classrooms. Some of your learning time will be “Project Led”, bringing together your theory, knowledge and practical skills into an individual or group project, such as a community action project.
You'll be assessed through two examination papers, paper 1 (Science and Building Technology) and paper 2 (Construction Industry and Sustainability), and an employer set project.
There is also a single synoptic assessment for the Occupational Specialist Component, which is an extended ‘design, development and implementation' project.

You could continue your journey with us by progressing on to degree-level study with our higher education partner, UCEN Manchester by completing a HNC or HND in Construction and the Built Environment, both of which are industry recognised level 4 and level 5 qualifications. Students progressing from The Manchester College will receive a cash award through the Achievers Scholarship.

Some of our HNC/HND students have then gone on to university to study degrees at university such as:
• BSc (Hons) Architecture Design and Technology
• BSc (Hons) Building Surveying
• BSc (Hons) Construction Project Management
• BSc (Hons) Civil Engineering
• BSc (Hons) Environmental Science
• BSc (Hons) Quantity Surveying
• You could also progress on to a career in the construction industry and become a construction manager, civil engineer, quantity surveyor or even specialise in architectural design.
Whichever path you choose to take, you'll be developing a wide range of abilities and knowledge to help you succeed in a number of different career opportunities in industry.
