What are T Levels?

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.

How long is the industry placement?

An industry placement lasts around 45 days, undertaken as a block or as individual days. The specific length of the placement and when it will take place will differ depending on your T Level.

Is this the right path for me?

T Levels are ideal if you have completed your GCSEs and want to get the knowledge and experience needed to get a skilled job.

Can I go to university after a T Level?

Yes, you can. T Levels get you work ready, but you can continue studying with a higher apprenticeship or degree.

Will they be recognised by employers?

T Levels are designed with businesses and employers, to make sure you have the skills and knowledge they are looking for in an employee.

What qualifications do I need to be able to study a T Level?

Specific entry requirements will differ according to the T Level you choose to study. More information coming soon.

Why would I choose an unpaid T Level over a paid apprenticeship?

T Levels give you the opportunity to experience an industry while you continue your studies, with the opportunity to specialise later. While gaining practical experience, you also achieve the qualifications needed to move into a higher level of study, if you choose to later. 
Apprenticeships are paid, work-based training for those who know what occupation they want to pursue.
