T LEVEL COURSES
T Levels are Level 3, two-year technical programmes that provide you with a high-quality alternative to A Levels.
FOUNDATION YEAR PROGRAMMES
If you haven’t quite achieved the grades for a T Level there is the option of a T Level Foundation Year, which is a Level 2, one-year programme that will then allow you to progress on to a T Level.
Those successful in gaining a place on our T Levels will be eligible for the ‘T Award’, a package of benefits that includes:
- £300 per year bursary*
- Free branded work wear
- Access to industry standard technologies
- Guaranteed progression to a Higher Education course at UCEN Manchester
- And much more
*Subject to requirements
JUMP START PROGRAMME
Both our T Levels and T Level Foundation Year require completion of our Jump Start to T Levels programme as an entry requirement.
The Jump Start programme is a two-week introduction to our Industry Excellence Academy, T Level and T Level Foundation Year programmes, where students can meet their tutors and experience what learning at The Manchester College is like.
Students will take part in a learning experience to demonstrate their creativity, teamwork and problem solving skills, as well as their resilience, timekeeping and commitment.
The programme is designed to inspire students to think and create like craft and design professionals. Topics covered on the Jump Start programme include:
- An introduction to Craft and Design
- The Creative Economy
- Audience and Consumer Needs
- Basic craft skills
Completion of the Jump Start programme is an entry requirement of our T Level and Foundation Year Programmes.
