The Next Level Qualification

Wednesday, 02 December, 2020

On Monday 7th December at 5pm Wakefield College will hold a virtual event, T Levels: The Next Level Event, on their website and social media channels for prospective T level students and parents to give them more information on this exciting two year route into skilled employment, higher study or apprenticeships.

My tutors are very helpful, I get plenty of time with them and they are really supportive. I’ve just passed the Microsoft MTA Window Server Fundamentals Microsoft exam which is separate to my degree but I’m really pleased I passed and I also did really well in my last semester in Programming.
