Course Overview

The purpose of the two year T Level course is to prepare you for employment in the construction industry by learning hands-on and in the classroom about the construction industry and how it works. 

You'll enjoy computer aided design (CAD), manual draft design skills, report writing, and surveying techniques for the planning, design and management of construction projects.

The Design, Surveying and Planning T Level is recognised by many professional organisations as an entry qualification for student membership.

Universities also recognise an appropriate T Level as an entry qualification, subject to the grades obtained on the course.

Entry Requirements

5 GCSEs at grade 4 (C) or above including Maths and English.

If you are a year 11 student applying for this programme, we will compare your GCSE results with the minimum target grades set for you by your school. This will help us decide whether this is your most suitable programme of study. Other students, including those from outside the area, will have an opportunity to discuss their qualifications and experience to make sure they too are studying at the right level. For some programmes, we might need to observe you carrying out certain practical tasks before we can make you an offer.

Essential Skills – English and Maths

If you achieve a grade 3 in GCSE Maths or English you will have to work towards re-sitting these subjects as part of your main study programme. At B&FC, this won’t delay your career journey because you’re working towards these subjects at the same time as your chosen subject.
