Tech-level IT: User support

We’ve submitted our proposed changes to Ofqual for Tech-level IT: Technical Support (TVQ1012), and Tech-level IT: User Support (TVQ1014). We’ll publish further information as soon as we’ve received their feedback.

  • Specification code: TVQ01012 TVQ01014
  • QAN code: 601/7126/1; 601/7130/3

We've designed these advanced, Level 3 technical qualifications in collaboration with employers and professional bodies. They're aimed at learners aged over 16 wanting to progress into a specific sector through apprenticeships, further study or employment.

Our Tech-level qualifications are included in the Department for Education (DfE)'s performance tables for technical and vocational qualifications aimed at students aged 16 to 19. They also attract UCAS tariff points .

Transferable skills have been contextualised explicitly within each qualification and are a mandatory part of the qualification outcome.
