T Levels

What are T Levels?

T Levels are a brand new qualification you can take after your GCSEs. Each qualification lasts two years and is equivalent to three A-Levels.  Like Apprenticeships, T Levels provide a chance for you to learn on the job. The main difference is that classroom learning accounts for 80% of your time with a T Level while your industry placement makes up the other 20%. Each placement is at least 315 hours long (that’s roughly 45 days!) What makes T Levels unique is that they have been specially designed with employers and businesses so as soon as you qualify you can step straight into your chosen career, higher apprenticeship or degree confident that you are equipped with all the industry knowledge you need to succeed.
