T Levels

CREATED WITH BUSINESS

T Levels have been designed with leading businesses and employers to give you the knowledge and skills you need. More than 200 businesses – including Fujitsu and Skanska – have been involved so you can be confident your T Level will move you to the next level.

GET AHEAD IN YOUR CAREER

T Levels give you the chance to learn what a real career is like while you continue your studies. Your industry placement will last for at least 45 days.

QUALIFICATIONS THAT COUNT

When you pass your T Level, you will get a nationally recognised certificate showing the overall grade you achieved - pass, merit, distinction or distinction*. It will also give details of what you learned on the course to help you move into skilled employment or a higher apprenticeship.

AWARDED UCAS POINTS

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 so you can choose to continue studying if you wish.

LEARN YOUR WAY

T Levels involve more classroom study than apprenticeships, which means you can experience an industry while you continue your studies. Like A Levels, there are no tuition fees to study a T Level if you start before you are 19.

NOT QUITE READY TO TAKE A T LEVEL YET?

Our gateway programmes will set you up with a host of excellent skills and new approaches to learning, which will put you in a great position to move onto a T Level the following year.

You’ll also get the chance to get those GCSE English and Maths grades you need if you haven’t already attained them, all wrapped up in a valuable and relevant training package.

T LEVELS THE NEW QUALIFICATION AFTER GCSE TAKING YOUR FUTURE TO THE NEXT LEVEL.

EQUIVALENT TO 3 A LEVELS

T Levels are an alternative to A Levels, apprenticeships and other 16 to 19 courses.

Equivalent to 3 A Levels, a T Level focuses on vocational skills and can help students into skilled employment, higher study or apprenticeships.

A 45-DAY INDUSTRY PLACEMENT

Each T Level includes an in-depth industry placement that lasts at least 45 days.

Students get valuable experience in the workplace; employers get early sight of the new talent in their industry.

80% CLASSROOM, 20% WORK

T Level students spend 80% of the course in the classroom, learning the skills that employers need.

The other 20% is a meaningful industry placement, where they put these skills into action.
