Launched in September 2021, T Levels are brand new two-year technical courses combining classroom study with on the job training as part of a substantial industry placement. Industry placements with an employer will last at least 315 hours. Our college is one of 64 T Level college/providers nationally selected to offer T Levels.
Benefits of T Levels
- Alternative to A Levels
- Designed with employers
- Cover a wide range of professions
- Combine classroom study with on the job training
- Provide progression routes into employment
- Teach hands-on skills
- UCAS points
T Levels are two-year courses that can be studied after GCSEs. They are an alternative study option to other existing qualifications such as A-Levels and apprenticeships. They will provide progression routes into skilled and technical employment, or onto higher/degree apprenticeships and university.
Approximately 70-80% of the course will consist of academic and technical study at college and 20-30% will be practical experience gained with an employer as part of an industry placement.
Courses will include core and specialist content. This will combine theory and understanding with hands-on skills required for an occupational specialism.
Students will gain any required occupational specialism, such as a licence to practice qualification, as part of the course.
Your T Level will be worth UCAS points; for example a T Level Distinction* is worth the same as three A-Levels at A* and will be recognised by universities and other education providers so you can choose to continue studying if you wish.
