T Levels

T LEvels

T Levels are a brand new qualification designed to give you a workforce of work-ready students, with the relevant skills to help strengthen and grow your business. T Levels are new courses coming in from September 2020, and they will follow on from GCSEs and will be equivalent to 3 A Levels. These 2-year courses have been developed in collaboration with businesses and organisations to help equip students with the right skills and knowledge of your business and industry needs.

T-levels will be available in a number of subject areas, with the first T Levels becoming available in construction, digital and education & childcare from September 2020. You can find out more by visiting:

T Levels have been designed using an 80% classroom and 20% in a work environment model to help students progress into highly skilled employment, higher-level study or apprenticeships so businesses can be confident when hiring a T Level graduate. To give students a chance to supplement the knowledge and technical skills learnt in the classroom, the T Level will require a 45-day industry placement.

Introducing Industry placements

Businesses have the opportunity of a head start with industry placements- helping employers send their business forward, faster. Employers all over the country are already working with learning providers in organising and offering students on relevant vocational courses a chance to put into practice their learning through structured and meaningful 45-day placements.

These placements will offer several benefits to business:

  • Help nurture and develop talent
  • Increase capacity
  • Extra resource for specific projects
  • Bring in people with imaginative, new ideas and different skills

Take your business to the next level with industry placements and T Levels.
