Who is it for?
The T Level Foundation Programme provides a high-quality route onto T Levels for students who would benefit from the additional study time and preparation that it will give them before they start their T Level. Our T Level Foundation Programme is a one-year course designed to develop the skills, knowledge and behaviours to support progression onto, and success on, a T Level.
You will need a minimum of 3 GCSEs at Grade 3 or above, preferably including maths or English.
What does the course involve?
There is a T Level Foundation Programme to prepare you for each T Level subject area. You’ll learn about the different T Levels within this subject area and their career opportunities, so that you can decide on the correct T Level for you. T Levels have a broad range of potential progression outcomes.
The college will be offering a Foundation Programme to allow students to move onto the following T Levels:
• T Level in Design, Surveying and Planning For Construction: Surveying and Design for Construction
• T Level in Design,Surveying & Planning for Construction: Building Services Design
• T Level in Design,Surveying & Planning for Construction: Construction & the Built Environment
How is the course assessed?
A wide range of assessment methods will be used throughout your programme, including presentations, group work, assignments, observation of activity, scenario projects, and external assessments which will develop your confidence for the success on T-Levels.
Upon the successful competition of the Foundation Programme for your preferred T Level route, you would then be expected to go onto study the T Level route of your choice.
After T Levels, you could progress straight into a skilled job or continue your studies via an apprenticeship or higher technical qualification.

Level 2 Painting & Decorating
Previous school: Telford College
My favourite thing that I’ve studied is decorative skills, which involve doing different techniques like stencilling and marbling. It’s quite intricate work and it was a challenge to learn, but I’m really proud of what I’ve done. You’ve just got to try new techniques out and know that you’re going to learn how to do it successfully when you’ve got a tutor as friendly and helpful as my tutors. My dream is to have my own interior design studio, specialising in working with small spaces and proving that you don’t need a lot of room to have a great home.
Level 1 Painting & Decorating
Previous school: Shrewsbury Academy
Painting & Decorating is a good trade to train in and offers great business opportunities afterwards. The tutors are good and I have learnt so much here – I have especially enjoyed learning how to wallpaper.
Level 1 Brickwork
Previous school: Thomas Adams School
I'm in my second year of brickwork and I've been learning a lot about attention to detail. I've got a part-time job on building sites on Mondays and Fridays where I work on extensions, new builds, renovations - anything you can think of really. At college, we learn the techniques and at work, I get to put them into practice.
