T Levels

The Next Level Qualification

What are T Levels

T Levels are a new 2-year qualification that you can do as an alternative to A levels, other post-16 courses or an apprenticeship. They bring classroom learning and an extended industry placement together on a course designed with businesses and employers.

T Levels are ideal if you have finished your GCSEs and want the knowledge and experience to get straight into employment, an apprenticeship or higher education. You’ll spend 80% of your time in the classroom and 20% on a 45-day placement with an employer to give you the skills and knowledge companies look for.

A T Level is equivalent to 3 A levels and will attract UCAS points. 

WHAT CAN I STUDY

The first T Levels started in September 2020 at selected schools and colleges in England. A further 7 T Levels launch in September 2021 and the rollout continues until September 2023 when all 24 T Levels will have launched covering subjects from agriculture to catering and engineering to science.
