T Levels

What are T Levels?

Designed by both the Government and businesses, T Levels make sure you complete your studies with not just a qualification but with all the current skills and knowledge employers need to help you start your career! This two-year qualification for 16-18 year olds, combines industry experience with classroom study – think of it as a mixture between apprenticeships and BTECs.

You will spend 45 days on an Industry Placement where you can put your skills into practice with the help of a local employer.

T Levels – what you need to know:

  • Like most 16 – 18 qualifications, T Levels are completely free
  • T Levels are a two-year qualification and during that time you will spend most of your time working in the classroom but will also complete a 45-day placement in a local business
  • A T Level Distinction* qualification is worth the same amount of UCAS points as 3 A Levels at A* or a BTEC Level 3 qualification at D*D*D*. This means you still have the option to progress your studies at university or you can enter employment with all of the skills and knowledge you need to get started
  • T Level students spend 80% of the course in their learning environment, gaining the skills that employers need. The other 20% is a meaningful industry placement, where they put these skills into action
