What will I learn? Key information Course SummaryOne of the real advantages of a T Level in Business Management and Administration is that it can lead to such a wide variety of potential careers in numerous industry sectors. At the same time, it teaches a set of invaluable skills that will serve you throughout your career, no matter which route you decide to take. Developing strategies and techniques that can help you manage projects, people, finances and systems successfully will make you a highly sought after individual in the UK jobs market. Plus, being able to demonstrate strong management behaviours also opens up opportunities for rapid progression. In addition to learning the theoretical side of management and administration, T level students also undertake an extended 9 week work placement. This gives them the chance to apply this newly acquired knowledge in real world scenarios. It's also an ideal opportunity to gain CV worthy work experience and potentially secure permanent employment and/or a degree apprenticeship as some of our T Levels students have already done. There's also the opportunity to pursue business-related subjects at degree level once you've completed your T Level. You might want to consider one of the Business Management degrees we offer here.
