Digital Production, Design and Development

T-Levels are a new qualification starting in September 2020 :gah:

In this course, you will gain an appreciation of the essentials behind digital roles understanding the data and digital systems, how software and business interact, security, testing, planning and legal issues. You can then build on this by developing specialist skills in understanding user needs and designing and developing digital systems.

This thread will be updated with useful resources and links to help all of you taking the course. If there is anything you would like to see added here, just let us know.

Feel free to chat and share ideas below! :woo:

There are a range of different pathways. You could choose to continue on to university, look for an apprenticeship or opt for full-time employment in a related field.

Are you interested in taking a T-Level?

I'm currently doing my first year of A-Levels because I wanted to pursue Computer Science, the other two A-Levels which I picked were Maths and Physics which is a decision I am now highly regretting as I'm now on track to fail both of them. Because of this, I'm now considering starting over at a different college doing the T-Level though I'm not sure of its viability especially because the type of course is hot off the press.

Sorry it's taken me ages to reply!

I can understand the hesitation. Have you done much research into T-Levels in general? There's more and more info coming out about them as they're being rolled out.

Also, have you thought further down the lines as to what you'd like to do ( stick with Computer Science at uni, apprenticeship, career etc.)? No worries if you haven't!

From my brief understanding, the T-Level has the practical elements of BTEC with an emphasis on work experience, though that is just my brief understanding.

I think T-Levels could work out better because I don't think you have to go into the detail that Maths and Physics do (working out graphs, tangents, derivatives etc.). For me, it seems like a more approachable route.

In terms of further down the lines, I'm more concerned about employability, and into what jobs, regardless if that involves going to uni, apprenticeship, etc. I'm interested in what pathways close (and if any new ones open, if any) when going from A-Level to T-Level in the Computer Science/Computing sphere. All I know is the A-Level route isn't working for me, and I'm wondering if T-Levels are right for me. Any insight is appreciated -- as I lack it myself. :grin:
