T Levels Intro

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

The two-year T Level qualification brings classroom and work placement together on a course designed with employers and businesses. They follow GCSEs and are equivalent to three A Levels. 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. A T Level qualification will help you to step straight into your chosen career, an apprenticeship or a degree. Wherever your future is heading, take it to the next level.

  • What are T Levels?

    T Levels are a 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 qualification of full-time study, or 3 years if studying a transition programme, brings classroom and work placement together, on a course designed with employers and businesses.

  • What subjects can I study?

    More and more subjects are becoming possible to study as a T Level. We will be adding more T Levels each year after they become available. Find out more at TLevels.gov.uk

  • How long is the Industry Placement?

    An industry placement lasts around 45 days, undertaken as a block or as individual days. The specific length of the placement and when it will take place will differ depending on your T Level.

  • Is it the right path for me?

    T Levels are ideal if you have completed your GCSEs and want to get the knowledge and experience needed to get a skilled job. Depending on your GCSE results you may want to consider a T Levels Transition Programme 

  • Will they be recognised by employers?

    T Levels are designed with businesses and employers, to make sure you have the skills and knowledge they are looking for in an employee.

  • Why would I choose an unpaid T Level over a paid Apprenticeship?

    T Levels are ideal if you have completed your GCSEs and want to get the knowledge and experience needed to get a skilled job.

  • Can I go to University after a T Level?

    T Levels give you the opportunity to experience an industry while you continue your studies, with the opportunity to specialise later. While gaining practical experience, you also achieve the qualifications needed to move into a higher level of study, if you choose to later. Apprenticeships are paid, work-based training for those who know what occupation they want to pursue.

  • Will there be any support for transport costs?

    We have designated funding to support industry placements which can be used to support you with your travel costs. You can find out more by coming to our next open day.
