The new T Level qualification route has been developed to more closely meet the technical skills required by industry today. With the explosion of Industry 4.0 technology, including additive manufacturing and 3D printing technologies across engineering, manufacturing and many other industries, the T Level courses (particularly in the Engineering and Manufacturing T Levels), provide the opportunity for students to learn the relevant skills in additive manufacturing technology required by employers today.

The following qualifications include content relating to additive manufacturing and 3D printing technologies and/or opportunities for developing knowledge and skills in these technologies. The outline content for these qualifications have been developed alongside employers by the Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education.

The aim of this document is to help you to understand the scope and opportunities for additive manufacturing within these T Level qualifications. To do this we have provide an overview of all the elements of the specified Engineering and Manufacturing T Level outline content that either directly reference, imply or provide opportunities for additive manufacturing. Alongside each curriculum reference (taken directly from the outline content) in the final column are practical examples of how the prescribed content can be met from an additive manufacturing/3D printing perspective.
CREATE Education can work with you to access funding for this technology and advise on the different technologies available.
