About T Levels
T levels or Technical Levels are groundbreaking new qualifications which are equivalent to 3 A Levels. T Levels offer students a mixture of classroom learning and ‘on-the-job’ experience during an industry placement of at least 315 hours (approximately 45 days). This placement is a second year requirement where the college will work together with students, parents, and employers, to ensure that students are work ready and on a pathway suited to their individual needs.
T Levels have been developed in collaboration with employers and businesses so that the content meets the needs of industry and prepares students for work, further training, or study.
T Levels are ideal if you have completed your GCSEs, and wish to continue your studies but also want to get into a skilled job. They are also great if you prefer a practical approach to your studies.
They enable you to build knowledge and experience to help you get the job you want. T Levels are developed in collaboration with employers and businesses so you will have the skills that employers in your chosen industry need.
T Levels are ideal for you if you are focused on a particular career or work skills and either want to progress to university, further training, an apprenticeship, or employment.
Who is it for?
The construction industry is an incredibly exciting option for a well-paid, rewarding career. There are so many different job roles we cannot list them all here. With its in-depth content and brilliant work placement scheme, the T Level can lead to a well-paid job with great prospects for progression as soon as you leave college. This specialism is for students who wish to pursue a career in electrical installation or electrical engineering.
GCSE Maths at grade 4 or above, plus 4 additional GCSEs at grade 4 or above (including English Language and Science).

HNC in Construction & the Built Environment
Previous Institution: Shrewsbury Academy
I wanted a complete change in career and had always considered becoming an architect. When I came to an SCG Open Evening, tutors suggested the route of Higher Education in Construction. It is a great hands-on course and I especially enjoyed learning about CAD, as this is a skill I need to become an architect.
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.
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.
