Let’s talk about RITTech! What is it and why is it important?

How to apply

Part RITTech Recognition

To achieve Part RITTech Recognition, you’ll firstly need to have passed a Digital T Level qualification. From there, it’s quick and easy to apply — just follow these steps:

  1. take a picture or screenshot of your Digital T Level result
  2. send it to us at tlevels@bcs.uk

That’s it! We’ll let you know when we’ve received the image of your qualification result and, once validated, we’ll award you with Part RITTech Recognition.



There are two routes to RITTech registration: accredited and experiential.

Accredited route

If you hold an accredited qualification, great news! You can take the accredited route to registration which means completing this application form with your details and the details of your qualification, then submitting it via MyBCS.

Experiential route

Don’t worry if you don’t have an accredited qualification as you can demonstrate your technical knowledge and experience in a written application instead.

  • Firstly, check you have the required competencies — if you interact with digital systems in a professional role, it’s highly likely you’re eligible.

  • Next, you need to identify a supporter, someone more senior than you to back up the information you give us. Check if your boss will be happy to do this... there are no phone calls, just a simple email exchange, all done in under five minutes.

All good? Now you’re ready to complete the application form which asks a few questions designed to get the right level of information from you. It should only take an hour or so to do.

Here’s a useful guide to completing your application or why not come along to one of our online RITTech workshops where we’ll walk you through the application process and provide tips for applying successfully.

Once you’ve completed the form simply submit it via MyBCS. We’ll get back to you within 14 days with the outcome of your application.
