Management and Administration

T Level in Management and Administration

City & Guilds has developed the Technical Qualification (TQ) for Management and Administration as part of the Business and Administration T Level route.

How is the T Level TQ structured?

The Management and Administration TQ is split into two main components: the Core, which is assessed by externally set written exams and an Employer-Set Project (ESP), and an Occupational Specialism (OS) which is assessed by a synoptic assignment.     

The following Occupational Specialisms are available within each TQ:  

  • Business Improvement
  • Business Support
  • Team Leadership/Management

“I feel like this course is one of the most beneficial courses available in terms of preparing me for my future because you gain actual experience of a working environment and how a business function.”

Through our Employer Industry Board (EIB), we are working with a group of employers and industry members to design and develop the T Level TQ specifications and assessments for the Management and Administration TQ to ensure the qualification is fit for purpose and meet the needs of the industry.
