T levels

T Levels are a brand- new, 2 year qualification that will give you a head start towards the career you want. They have been designed in partnership with businesses and employers to give you the skills and knowledge to succeed in the workplace.

T Level students spend 80% of the course in the classroom, learning the skills that employers need. The other 20% is a meaningful industry placement, where students put these skills into action.

T Levels are a direct alternative to A levels, apprenticeships and other 16 to 19 courses. Equivalent to 3 A levels, a T Level focuses on vocational skills and can help students into skilled employment, higher study or apprenticeships.
