T Levels are a brand new qualification designed for 16-19 year olds, with a mixture of classroom learning and work placement. They follow GCSEs and are equivalent to 3 A Levels. T Levels are a 2-year qualification, after which you can step straight into your chosen career, an apprenticehship or a degree. These courses have been developed in collaboration with employers and businesses so that the content meets the needs of industry and prepares students for work.T Levels will offer students a mixture of classroom learning and ‘on-the-job’ training during an industry placement of at least 45 days (315 hours). They will provide the knowledge and experience needed to open doors into a skilled job, higher apprenticeship or university.

Are T Levels better than apprenticeships?
Apprenticeships are different in that they are typically 80% on-the-job training and 20% in the classroom learning, and are more suited to students who know what occupation they see themselves working in, want to earn a wage, learn at the same time and are ready to enter the workforce at age 16.
