T Levels

What is a T Level?

T Levels are alternatives to A-Levels, apprenticeships and other 16 to 19 courses. They are two-year courses that are equivalent to three A-Levels.

The mark of difference for T Levels is that they include a 45-day industry placement alongside classroom learning.

T Levels have been developed in collaboration with employers and businesses. The ensures content meets industry needs and prepares students for work, training, or further study.

This allows students to step from a T Level into apprenticeships, university or full-time jobs.
