Business and Administration

From September 2022, City & Guilds and ILM will offer the T Level Management and Administration technical qualification. These will only be available in England.

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 in Business and Administration: Management and Administration.

This new TQ will offer young people a fantastic opportunity to gain hands on experience and important theoretical knowledge of how businesses operate, and how they can have a meaningful impact when they enter the workforce.

As we head into the TQ development for the first teaching from September 2022, we’ve pulled together a list of activities which you can access.
