Future-proof Your Career with T Levels

T Levels are brand new, 2-year qualifications that give you the skills, knowledge and experience to get started in a career. Specifically designed for school leavers (so after Year 11), these courses will get you career-ready whilst still giving you the necessary qualifications to progress on to university or higher-level study in the future.

What is the difference between T Levels to other courses?

T Levels are equivalent to 3 A Levels and offer an alternative to apprenticeships and other post-16 courses. The added benefit of studying a T Level is the way you learn. With 80% classroom delivery and 20% industry placement, you get more classroom support than an apprenticeship, but more work experience than A Levels. 

Why should I consider T Levels after GCSEs?

T Levels are a great chance to experience the career you are training for. Your theory work in class will help you gain an understanding of the industry, as well as giving you the skills and knowledge required before you undertake your industry placement. Your industry placement will give you around 45 days* of meaningful work experience with a leading local company. Putting your skills into practice and working alongside trained professionals will help embed what you learn in class and give you the best start when applying for jobs in the future.

What can I do after completing a T Level?

T levels should enable you to go straight into employment in a relevant industry. All of the T Level qualifications were designed by employers and industry specialists, so they will deliver the skills employers are looking for. As well as holding a Level 3 qualification, you will also have the added benefit of your industry placement to help you stand out when applying for job roles. 

Your T Level is equivalent to A Levels, so you will still gain UCAS points which are recognised by universities and other training providers. This means you can still choose to progress on to university or higher apprenticeships if you want to.

*hours may be in block placements or spread out throughout the course.
