T Level - Civil Engineering

T Levels are a fresh and exciting alternative to A Levels as they offer a work focussed experience which combines academic study of the highest quality with practical industry related skills. In addition, T Levels include a mandatory placement of 315 hours minimum, typically completed across 45 days, that has been built into the course to further develop individual skills.

  • Overview

    What will I learn?

    T Levels are a fresh and exciting alternative to A levels as they offer a work focussed experience which combines academic study of the highest quality with practical industry related skills. In addition to this, T Levels include a mandatory 45-industry placement that has been built into the course to further develop individual skills. If you wish to work in the construction sector with a focus on Civil Engineering, then this T Level is for you.
    This course is best suited to students who prefer a practical approach to learning yet want a largely classroom-based course.
    The T Level is equivalent to 3 A Levels and focuses on vocational skills that can help you obtain skilled employment, university study or an apprenticeship.

  • Entry Requirements

    Students will need to have GCSE Science and Maths at Grade 5, English and two other GCSEs at Grade 4. The overall grade will be on a scale of Pass, Merit, Distinction, Distinction.

  • How will I be assessed?

    Students will be assessed through observations, written assignments, and employer set project (1st year) and exams and an occupational specialist project (2nd year).

    The T Level certificate will include:

    • an overall grade for the T Level, shown as pass, merit, distinction or distinction*
    • a separate grade for the core component, using A* to E
    • a separate grade for the occupational specialism (Civil Engineering), shown as pass, merit or distinction

  • Progression Pathway

    This course is suitable for anyone wanting a career in civil engineering. Students can progress onto roles such as civil engineering technician, CAD technician, consulting civil engineer and design engineering, or progression into university. Students studying engineering based subjects at Runshaw College have progressed onto university to study a wide range of courses, including Engineering, Robotics and Architecture to name a few, or into careers with a variety of companies, including Rolls Royce, BAE Systems and Cadent Gas.

  • Teaching & Assessment

    Students will be assessed through a continual assessment using practical observations, written assignments, exams and an employer set project. The T Level certificate will include:

    • An overall grade for the T Level, shown as pass, merit, distinction or distinction*
    • A separate grade for the core component, using A* to E
    • A separate grade for the occupational specialism (Civil Engineering), shown as pass, merit or distinction
