T Levels are a brand-new, 2-year qualification that you can do as an alternative to A levels, other post-16 courses or Apprenticeships.
They bring classroom learning and an extended industry placement together on a course designed with over 200 businesses and employers to make sure you’ll get the skills and on-the-job experience you need to successfully start your career.
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.
One T level takes 2 years of full-time study and is equivalent to 3 A levels.
T Levels provide a mixture of:
- Technical knowledge and practical skills specific to your chosen industry or occupation.
- An industry placement of at least 45 days in your chosen industry or occupation. Watch this short Government video to hear why students find completing industry placements so beneficial.
- Relevant Maths, English and digital skills.
- Common workplace skills.
Successful completion of a T Level can take you straight into the workplace of your chosen industry, or into Higher Education to continue your studies.
