T Levels

T Levels are a 2-year qualification that you can do as an alternative to A levels, other post-16 courses or an apprenticeship.

They bring classroom learning and an extended industry placement together on a course designed with businesses and employers.

T Levels

Why study T Levels?

T Levels give you another choice after your GCSEs. Check out the 4 great reasons for choosing a T Level – and get ready to move to the next level.

Created with business

T Levels have been designed with leading businesses and employers to give you the knowledge and skills you need.

Get ahead in your career

T Levels give you the chance to learn what a real career is like while you continue your studies.

Learn your way

T Levels involve more classroom study than apprenticeships, which means you can experience an industry while you continue your studies.

UCAS Points

Your T Level will be worth UCAS points and will be recognised by universities and other education providers so you can choose to continue studying if you wish.

Are T Levels for me?

T Levels are ideal if you have finished your GCSEs and want the knowledge and experience to get straight into employment, an apprenticeship or higher education.

You’ll spend 80% of your time in the classroom and 20% on a 45-day placement with an employer to give you the skills and knowledge companies look for.

One T Level takes 2 years of full-time study and is equivalent in size to 3 A levels.

Industry Placements

As part of T Levels, students are required to complete an Industry Placement that is occupationally specific to their course.

An Industry Placement runs for a minimum of 45 days with the emphasis on quality. This is an opportunity for students to support with projects, take the lead and enhance their skills.

An Industry Placement will take place with an employer external to the learning provider’s premises.
