About this course

The core element of a level 3 T Level in Digital Production, Design and Development will allow you to develop your knowledge and understanding in a broad range of topics such as programming, coding, the use of data and the different platforms of delivery in the digital industry. It’s a fast-moving and cutting-edge subject and you’ll also learn about the potential security risks that organisations can face and how to analyse problems and identify solutions through computer programs.

You’ll then move on to study the subject in more detail through occupational specialism. This is where you can get deeper into specific aspects of the subject, developing and practising the skills needed for an occupation.
