Engineering and Manufacturing

T Level in Electrotechnical Engineering, Level 3

Course overview

The T Level Technical Qualification in Electrotechnical Engineering allows learners to gain an understanding of the BSE industry and the industry sector. The topics covered in this qualification will include H&S, Construction Science Principles, Sustainability in the Construction Industry and Building Services Engineering Systems.

T Levels are two-year courses which have been developed in collaboration with employers and businesses so that the content meets the needs of industry and prepares learners for work. T Level qualifications are equivalent to three A Levels.

This qualification focuses on the development of knowledge and skills needed for working in the BSE industry, and specifically Electrotechnical engineering, which will prepare learners to enter the industry through employment or as an Apprentice.

Completion of the T Level qualification gives the learner the opportunity to progress onto a University/Higher education study program or into further training within the industry sector.

Entry requirements

• 5 GCSEs at grade 5 or above including English and Mathematics. It is preferable that applicants will also have a Science GCSE at Grade 5 or above.
• Level 2 Electrical Installation qualification
• A successful interview with an appropriate tutor and initial assessments.
• A commitment to undertaking a 45 day industry placement following a successful interview with an employer. We encourage students to secure their own placement in a field related to their study although our dedicated placement officers are available should assistance be required securing a placement.

Course Modules

The Electrotechnical Engineering T Level Pathway is made up of a core component, an Occupational Specialism and an industry placement. All of these elements must be successfully achieved to pass the T Level.

The core component of the T Level is designed to offer a broad range of knowledge and skills in the building service engineering industry. Topics covered in the core element of the qualification include health and safety, legislation, regulations and standards, tools, equipment and materials, technology, building services engineering systems and knowledge of the construction and the built environment industry.

The Occupational Specialism content allows learners to develop specific skills in electrotechnical engineering. This specialism provides learners with knowledge of how to undertake fundamental electrotechnical systems, engineering processes and procedures. Learners will have the opportunity to plan, perform and evaluate their work while using a range of materials, methods and techniques.

The Occupational Specialism will cover:
• Health and safety practices associated with carrying out electrotechnical systems engineering
• Installation methods and termination of connections
• The systems and products used in electrotechnical engineering
• How to analyse and use information to and from electrotechnical systems
• Decommissioning processes

What can I do next

This qualification focuses on the development of knowledge and skills needed for working in the Building Services Engineering industry, which will prepare you to enter the industry through employment or as an Apprentice.

The completion of this qualification gives you the opportunity to progress onto higher education courses and training.

Progression routes shown are dependent on successful completion of qualifications and meeting entry criteria.

Study options may include:
• Level 3 Apprenticeship in Electrical Installation
• Higher Level Study at University or on a Degree Apprenticeship programme.
