T-levels are a post-16 alternative to A-levels and Apprenticeships. They are a special type of Programme of Study.
How to set up T-levels
T-levels are set up in a very similar way to Programmes of Study so you can follow this guidance: Programmes of Study and Core Learning Aims for Post-16
Every T Level student must choose an occupational specialism as part of their T Level programme. To record this in Arbor, you'll need to:
- set up a separate programme for each specialism
- add the ZTLOS QAN code as the placeholder, alongside the Subject Classification Code (SCC or Discount Code) as it isn't possible to link Non-EDI qualifications to a programme instance. To find the SCC use the Department for Education's Generic QAN Data or for more information see 16 to 18 qualifications, discount codes and point scores
Click +Add in the same way you would add students to Programmes of Study.
Make sure students are only enrolled in one occupational specialism, in line with the DfE's guidance on Occupational specialism here: Complete the school census
