Lincoln UTC launches T Level in Engineering

The first provider in Lincolnshire to offer this qualification

T Levels are an alternative to A Levels, apprenticeships and other 16-19 courses. Students will spend 80% of their course in the classroom learning the skills that employers need, and the other 20% in a meaningful industry placement putting those skills in action. 

The Department of Education recently launched T Levels to provide students with valuable experience in the workplace and allow employers to get early sight of new talent in their industry. 

UTC Principal, John Morrison, said: “As a university technical college we already have a significant number of employer partners involved in the delivery of our curriculum, which makes us uniquely well positioned to deliver the T Level qualification. 

“UTC students in all year groups are provided with the opportunity for work experience every year, and many of our Level 3 BTEC engineers also choose to complete a longer industrial placement in parallel with their studies. 

“The large majority of our alumni that have now secured apprenticeships did so as a direct consequence of the relationships they formed with these employers whilst students at the UTC, and we hope that our T Level graduates will continue this trend.”

A limited number of places are still available at the UTC for Post-16 study starting in September 2021. Applications for the September 2022 T Level course will open later this year. For more information visit www.lincolnutc.co.uk or email [email protected].
