T Levels

T Levels are a new choice after your GCSEs. Check out the 5 great reasons for choosing a T Level – and get ready to move to the next level.

What are T Levels?

T Levels are a brand new qualification designed to give you a head start towards the future you want.

They follow GCSEs and are equivalent to 3 A Levels.

The 2-year T Level qualification brings classroom and work placement together on a course designed with employers and businesses.

You’ll spend 80% of your time in the classroom and 20% on a 45-day placement to give you the skills and knowledge employers are looking for.

Your T Level will help you to step straight into your chosen career, an apprenticeship or a degree.

Structure of a T Level

T Level courses will include the following compulsory element:

  • A technical qualification, which will include:
    • core theory, concepts and skills for an industry area;
    • specialist skills and knowledge for an occupation or career;
    • an industry placement with an employer;
    • continued development of English, maths and digital competencies

 

Industry placements

 

 

Every T Level will include an industry placement with an employer focused on developing the practical and technical skills required for the occupation. These will last a minimum of 315 hours (approximately 45 days) but can last longer. Employers can offer industry placements as a block, day release or a mix of these, and can discuss sharing part of the placement with another employer if necessary.

Providers will support employers offering industry placements. This will include assistance with the necessary paperwork, a careful planning process and support with designing the industry placement.
