T Levels, new technical courses equivalent to 3 A Levels help to deliver high quality technical education in England, to ensure that young people have the skills they need to move into the fulfilling careers they want. They will enable students to access on-the-job skills training, develop experience and links within their chosen industry and prepare them for future opportunities and apprenticeships.
We are seeking to appoint a Subject Leader for our new T Level in Digital Production, Design and Development to start in September 2021. The successful candidate will bring with them skills in the following key areas:

The T Level will be part of the IT and Computing Department at Salesian College, a dynamic and progressive department, with learning and teaching at the heart of everything it does. This is shown by the number of students who go on to study IT/Computing related subjects at university.

We are exceptionally proud of our results:
- 100% A*- B at A2 Computer Science
