Tech Levels

Tech Levels have been developed for students wishing to specialise in a technical occupation or occupational group. They will equip a student with specialist knowledge and skills, enabling entry to employment, an apprenticeship in that occupational group or progression to a related further or higher education course.  

In some cases they can provide a ‘licence to practise’ or exemption from professional exams. Tech Level qualifications will feature as one of three components of the Government’s Technical Baccalaureate (TechBacc) performance table measure, which will be introduced for courses beginning in September 2014 and reported in performance tables from 2016.
