Overview

This course is ideal if you have knack for Maths and working with Data. With “Big Data” becoming a big part of business, you will need to be keen to develop and work with bespoke databases, and have an analytical head to convert raw data into useable information for businesses!

T Levels offer a fantastic combination of classroom learning, with a long-term Industry Placement. Assessments come in the form of two short exams in the first year with an Employer Led project, and then through assignments and a long term project in year two.

You will work with one of our Industry Placement Liaison Officers to find an Industry Placement that is right for you and your interests, and to set some objectives of what you want to achieve.

To start, you will look at the digital environment and the impact of technology on our modern world, including networked and cloud systems, the evolution of Artificial Intelligence, Augmented Reality, and the Internet of things. You will also consider the business context and usages of this technology, thinking about legislation, security, and cultural issues.

As you progress further into the specialism, you will look at the types of data and their uses within organisations, the legal and ethical issues surrounding this, and the requirements for effective and secure storage. Further on you will look at combining data from multiple sources to create data models that can be manipulated to produce results, and to eventually power business decisions and problem solving.

You will have a long-term work placement which you will attend 1 day per week, and access to other exciting opportunities such as attending the European Games Expo (EGX), visiting Bletchley Park, and participating in a Cybersecurity Seminar featuring live demonstrations from local and international guest speakers.

This T Level will equip you for progression onto our fantastic Higher Education offering, the Higher National Diploma in Computing, but could also lead into Apprenticeship opportunities at Level 3 or Level 4 as a Data Analyst.

You could also progress onto university where you could continue your studies in Business Services, or move onto a Data Analyst or Data Architect course.

Employment opportunities leading from this T Level could lead into jobs such as a Data Analyst, Data Scientist, Machine Learning, Business Analyst, IT Project Management, and more.
