Management and Administration (Business Support) T Level

C&G T Level Technical Qualification in Management and Administration. What is a T Level? T Levels are new courses which will follow GCSEs and will be equivalent to three A Levels. These two-year courses have been developed in collaboration with employers and businesses so that the content meets the needs of industry and prepares learners for work. T levels are one of three post 16 options for young people which are: • A Levels • Apprenticeships • T Level Additional mandatory parts of the T Level that need to be achieved: • A 315-hour minimum industry placement. • Level 2 Functional skills or GCSE English and Maths at grade 4 or above for entry on to the programme. Who is this qualification for? This qualification is for you if you are a 16-19-year-old learner, who wishes to work within the Management and Administration sector. It has been designed to deliver a high level of knowledge about the Management and Administration sector as well as the occupational skills required to enter the industry (known as ‘threshold competence’). A learner who completes this qualification is well placed to develop to full occupational competence with the correct support and training.

The qualification will help you gain an understanding of the Management and Administration sector, and you will cover topics such as: Business Context, People, Quality Compliance, Project, and Change Management. A learner will have the choice of studying one standalone occupational specialism as listed below. • Business Improvement • Team Leadership/Management • Business Support Centres and providers work with local employers who will contribute to the knowledge and delivery of training. Employers will provide demonstrations and talks on the industry and where possible work placements will also be provided by the employers.

Technical Qualification Structure The technical qualification is made up of two components, both of which need to be successfully achieved to attain the technical qualification as well as the full T Level in Management and Administration. The Core Component: The core content is designed to offer sufficient breadth of knowledge and skills for the learner to apply in a variety of 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.

Assessed by 2 externally set, externally marked exam papers and an ESP (x 6 tasks) over a period of set time.

Grading and marking The Management and Administration core (component 300) is graded overall A*–E plus ungraded (U). The occupational specialisms (components 301-303) are graded overall Distinction, Merit, Pass and Ungraded. Each occupational specialism achieved will receive a grade. 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. Occupational assessment / project marked Pass, Merit or Distinction
