Maths and Science content in T Levels

The Royal Society Advisory Committee on Mathematics Education have supported the department with development of the General Mathematical Competencies that are embedded within all T Levels.

While HE providers are autonomous institutions and therefore responsible for setting their own entry requirements, the department has worked to support their understanding of the maths content in relevant T Levels. This included mapping the maths content in Digital: Digital Production, Design and Development and Qualification in Design, Surveying and Planning for Construction T Levels to related A Level Maths and BTEC content, which was validated by both the related AO and relevant HE stakeholders. The mapping was shared with the sector through UCAS and webinars with AOs.

The department is now working with the Royal Society, the Royal Academy of Engineering, and the Gatsby Foundation to map maths content in the Engineering and Manufacturing T Levels. We are engaging the sector closely on this issue and will be working over the coming months to ensure that HE entry requirements are clear  for students looking to apply for an engineering-based degree, and to understand the expectations of HE providers in this space and how T Levels meet these requirements.

The department has also mapped the science content of the Health, Healthcare Science and Science T Levels to related science A Levels and Applied Science BTECs. This work was completed with the support of the Institute of Physics and the Royal Societies of Biology and Chemistry.
