What are T Levels?

T Levels are a new qualification designed to give you a head start towards the future you want. They follow GCSEs and are equivalent to 3 A Levels.
The 2-year qualification brings classroom and industry placement together, on a course designed in collaboration with the best employers.

You’ll spend 80% of your time in College and 20% on an industry placement for a minimum of 315 hours (approximately 45 days) to equip you with the knowledge and skills companies are looking for.
Your T Level will help you to step straight into your chosen career, an Apprenticeship or a Degree. Wherever your future is heading, take it to the next level.


Are T Levels right for you? 

This next level qualification is right for you if you:

  • have just finished your GCSEs want to get into a skilled job like a mixture of classroom and practical learning
  • want the knowledge, skills and experience to get the job you want
  • are interested in spending time with employers to try out different job roles 

What is the difference between T Levels and Apprenticeships?

T Levels and Apprenticeships are similar, they will be based upon the same standards which are designed by employers. However, an Apprentice spends most of their time in the workplace, learning on-the-job, whereas a T Level student will spend most of their time in the classroom/workshop.

Where can T Levels take me?

On successful completion of a T Level qualification, you will have a range of progression routes including: gaining employment in a skilled occupation, apply for a Higher or Degree Level Apprenticeship, or continue a Higher Level Degree at University.

Can I get UCAS tariff points?

Yes. Your T Level will be worth UCAS points. You can use the qualification when applying for Higher Education.
You must achieve at least an overall pass grade to receive UCAS points for any university applications.
