T Levels are a two-year qualification, designed by leading businesses and employers to give you a head start towards your career!
They are an alternative to A levels, BTECs and apprenticeships and include a 45-day industry placement. They also carry the same number of UCAS points as three A levels, which means you could choose to progress on to university, into employment or on to a higher/degree apprenticeship.
WHY CHOOSE T-LEVELS
You’ll spend 80% of your time in College and 20% on a 45-day placement with an employer, gaining amazing experience.
3 A LEVELS
1 T Level is equivalent to 3 A levels, which means you can progress to university, employment or a higher/degree apprenticeship!
T Levels have been designed with leading businesses and employers to give you the knowledge and skills you need to succeed.

What’s the difference between a T-Level and an apprenticeship?
Apprenticeships are paid work, suitable for students who know what occupation they want to pursue and wish to train ‘on the job’ (80% in the workplace, 20% off the job). T Levels are largely classroom based, with a significant industry placement (80% in the classroom, 20% in the workplace).
What can a T Level lead to?
T Levels can lead to university, a higher/degree apprenticeship or employment!
Why have T-Levels been developed?
T Levels are a big part of the Government’s plan to transform education in the UK. They will create a new generation of highly skilled workers that the UK needs for its future economy to be successful.
