From September 2022, City & Guilds and ILM will offer the T Level Technical Qualification (TQ) in Management and Administration. These will only be available in England only.

ILM, a City & Guilds Group business, specialises in developing Leadership and Management qualifications, meaning the business has the knowledge and expertise needed to develop the T Level TQ in Business and Administration: Management and Administration.

We have put together a list of activities to help you prepare ahead for the TQ first teaching in September 2022. Please refer to the timeline of activities to ensure that you have everything in place and are ready to hit the ground running.

What are T Levels?

Designed by key employers, T Levels are a new two-year programme choice that follows GCSEs and prepares learners for work, further training or study.

T Levels will become one of the main choices for learners after GCSE alongside apprenticeships and A-levels.

The T Level programme includes the following compulsory elements:

  • a Technical Qualification (TQ), which includes: core theory, concepts and skills for an industry area
  • an industry placement with an employer
  • a minimum standard in maths and English if learners have not already achieved them at the start of their T Levels.

Draft Specifications

Management and Administration TQ Specification Draft (PDF)


Note: The Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education (the Institute) awarded contracts for the third wave of T Level Technical Qualifications (TQs) in October 2020 and these will be taught from September 2022. Each TQ will be subject to Approval by the Institute (as required by the Apprenticeship, Skills, Children and Learning Act 2009).

These qualifications are going through a robust development process and have not yet been Approved by the Institute. Awarding Organisations (AOs) continue to engage with Providers as part of the development process. This may include sharing drafts of the Technical Qualification Specification and/or Specimen Assessment Materials.

Providers should be aware that these documents are likely to change as work between the Institute and AOs continues at depth and pace. These materials are being shared with Eligible Providers solely for information purposes to ensure as much visibility as possible during the development period. Pending approval by the Institute and accreditation by Ofqual, materials are expected to be shared with Providers in December 2021.
