Coming Soon: T Levels
What are T Levels?
A T Level is a brand new qualification that gives you the opportunity to get a head start in the career that you want. The course focuses on vocational skills and can help young people move into skilled employment, higher level study or apprenticeships.
T Levels are an alternative to A-levels and provide a real insight into the industry, giving you a chance to learn the skills that employers look for.
What makes them different to A-levels?
T Level students spend 80% of their course in the classroom, learning the skills that employers are looking for. The other 20% of the course is made up of a 45 day work experience placement, giving you the chance to put these skills into action.
T Levels are equivalent to 3 A levels.
Where can they take me?
Your T Level will be worth UCAS points – a T Level Distinction* is worth the same as 3 A-levels at A* – and will be recognised by universities and other education providers. Therefore, you can choose to continue studying after completing the course if you wish.
If you are keen to move into skilled employment or an apprenticeship when you qualify, you will get a nationally recognised certificate showing the overall grade you achieved, detailing what you have learned on the course.
