About TechBac

TechBac combines both a Technical Qualification and Workplace Skills to give 14-19 year old learners a unique blend of hands-on technical skills, transferable ‘soft’ skills and workplace behaviours. No other curriculum breaks down doors and progresses learners like TechBac does.

The benefit of studying a TechBac is that it provides learners with a holistic curriculum to prepare them for working in the real-world.

Our TechBac aligns with the emerging principles of the government T Levels and enables learners to pave their path towards employment, apprenticeships, or on to university.

Why City & Guilds TechBac?

  • Developed with and supported by key industry players
  • Addresses key challenges identified in the 14-19 reforms, which includes learner destinations and outcomes, employer engagement and adopting digital delivery
  • Technical Qualifications are approved for funding under Section 96
  • Meets delivery requirements from Ofsted and FELTAG in England
  • Offers clear progression pathways into further learning, employment, apprenticeships and university. This unique combination ensures that a TechBac graduate will be able to perform at work from day one.
