T-Level Building Services Engineering for Construction

Electrotechnical Engineering Pathway - Starting in Sept 2024

MITSkills are offering a 2-year, Level 3 T-Level qualification in Electrotechnical Engineering for post GCSE learners as an alternative to A levels, other post-16 courses or an apprenticeship.

This course has been designed with leading businesses and employers to give you the knowledge and skills you need to begin a career as an electrotechnical engineer.

As a T-Level student you will spend 80% of your time in the classroom and 20% on a 45-day placement with an employer to give you the skills and knowledge companies look for.

Your industry placement gives you the chance to learn what a real career is like while you continue your studies.

Your T Level will be worth UCAS points (a T Level Distinction* is worth the same as 3 A levels at A*) and will be recognised by universities and other education providers so you can choose to continue studying if you wish.

Like A levels, there are no tuition fees to study a T Level if you start before you are 19.

Programme Aims

All students will develop a general understanding of construction, including:

  • health and safety
  • the science behind building design, surveying and planning
  • making accurate and appropriate measurements
  • construction methods
  • building regulations and standards
  • data management and information standards in construction
  • relationship management and customer service
  • how the Internet of Things (IoT) impacts construction
  • digital engineering techniques
  • mathematical techniques to solve construction problems
  • construction design principles and processes
  • the construction industry and its role in the economy
  • sustainability and the environmental impact of construction
  • business, commerce and corporate social responsibility

In addition to the core content, each student will also complete at least one module of the below occupation-specific content:

  • Electrotechnical Engineering Principles
  • Installing electrotechnical systems
  • Commissioning electrotechnical systems
  • Maintaining electrotechnical systems
  • De-commissioning electrotechnical systems


How you will learn and be assessed

Your learning will combine classroom theory and practical learning and include 9 weeks (minimum) of industry placement. The placement will provide you with real experience of the workplace.

Your core knowledge and skills will be assessed through exams and an employer-set project. You’ll work with your tutor to decide when you’re ready to be assessed on the core.

Assessment of occupational specialist knowledge and skills will vary depending on the occupation. It will involve tests, practical assignments and projects. Your occupational specialist knowledge and skills will be assessed in the second year.
