Additional information

Who is this course for?

This course is suitable for anyone interested in a career in management and administration.

If you are progressing from a Level 2 qualification, you will need GCSE English and Maths at Grade 5 with a Distinction/ B in a Level 2 Business-related qualification.

Students can also use this T Level to progress to a related higher-level apprenticeship or course of study at a higher level.

What you'll learn

Students will develop an understanding of a broad range of issues relevant to the sector, including:

  • Business context – an overview of organisational cultures and values, different types of internal and external stakeholders
  • Different forms of governance and the impact of organisations on society and the environment project and change management
  • An understanding of the common change management theories and models and how to support and improve projects’ business behaviours
  • The importance of good communication and adapting social communication styles to professional standards and according to purpose, medium and audience quality and compliance
  • The importance of maintaining and improving quality in all aspects of public and private sector organisations

Course entry requirements

In addition to the core content, each student will also complete at least one module of occupation-specific content. The specialisms available in the T Level in Management and Administration are: business support, business improvement team leadership, and management. 

GCSEs at Grade 5 or above, including English Language and Maths.

We will invite you to a course information meeting event where you will receive information, advice, and guidance about the course you have applied for. This will be an opportunity for you to gain valuable information about the course and give you the opportunity to ask any questions you may have. 

You will also be informed about the requirements of the Industry placements, the model of this being delivered (dependant on T-Level Pathway) and the commitment this will require as a T-Level cannot be fully achieved if the placement hours are not fulfilled. 

You will need to provide a copy of your last school report and/or a reference from an employer or relevant professional; this will include attendance. This is to ensure we can support you to be able to achieve well on the course.

Applicants with 85% or below attendance will have been deemed not to have met this criterion. All applicants are given an opportunity to discuss any evidence-based mitigating circumstances that may have affected the reference/school report. We are firmly committed to finding the right course for you to ensure you can flourish.

Talk to us today if you have any concerns about the application process; we are here to help take you to the next level.

How is the course delivered and assessed?

The T Level is delivered through classroom-based and practical learning, at college and on industry placement.

The Technical Qualification is the main classroom-based element of the course, and consists of the core component and occupational specialism component.

The technical qualification is made up of two components, both of which need to be successfully achieved.

The Core Component

The core content is designed to offer sufficient breadth of knowledge and skills for the learner to apply in various contexts related to the industry and those occupational specialisms linked to this T Level. The core content is the building blocks of knowledge and skills that will give a learner a broad understanding of the industry and job roles. At the same time, it will develop the core skills they will need to apply when working within the industry. The knowledge tests and employer-set projects are externally assessed.

Occupational Specialisms

Occupational specialisms develop the knowledge, skills and behaviours necessary to achieve threshold competence in an occupation. Threshold competence is defined as when a learner’s attainment against the knowledge, skills and behaviours is of a standard for them to enter the occupation and industry. They must also demonstrate the ability to achieve occupational competence over time with the correct support and training.

A significant component of the occupational specialism is the industrial placement, which will last for a minimum of 315 hours during the 2-year period.

Future career and study opportunities

Successful completion of the T-Level will result in a Level 3 qualification equivalent to 3 A Levels and has UCAS Tariff points to support progression into Higher Education or higher professional level courses.

Completion will also support progression to higher-level apprenticeships and directly into employment.

Additional costs

As a City of Bristol College student, you may incur additional costs to attend your course. For example, you may likely need to pay for travel and stationery.

Many courses offer learning opportunities that you may need to pay for. This may include things like study visits and visiting speakers. We will let you know in advance if there will be additional costs.

If you are on a limited income, you may be able to receive help from our Learner Support Funding Bursary.
