T Levels

A new choice - T Levels are a brand-new qualification designed to give you a head start towards the future you want. These two year courses follow GCSEs and are equivalent to 3 A Levels, combining academic classroom-based learning with an industry placement. They provide a good alternative to A Levels or BTEC and vocational courses.

Co-created by the industry you want to be part of, T Levels ensure you can gain the knowledge, skills and experience you need to leap ahead of the crowd into your desired career.

Combining classroom-based learning and a meaningful 45-day industry placement, T Levels provide high-quality technical education suited to students who know the industry or area of work they want to pursue for a career.

Tackling T Levels

What is the difference between vocational qualifications, A Levels and T Levels?

A Levels are assessed mainly through exams, while diploma courses are assessed mainly by coursework. In terms of UCAS points, level 3 diploma vocational qualifications are often equivalent to three A Levels. T Levels have been co-created with over 250 employers to combine classroom study with a 45-day industry placement. T Levels are equivalent to three A Levels and are assessed by both exams and coursework.

Can I go to university after studying a T Level?

Yes. T Levels are nationally-recognised qualifications and worth UCAS points, therefore are accepted by universities and other education providers.

How do T Levels differ from an apprenticeship?

An apprenticeship is typically 80% on-the-job and 20% in the classroom, as opposed to T Levels where 80% of your study programme is classroom-based and 20% is spent completing an industry placement.

T Levels are nationally-recognised qualifications and worth UCAS points. They are accepted by universities and other education providers so you can continue studying at a higher level if you wish. Alternatively, you could progress to an apprenticeship or go straight into skilled employment. For 2023 entry, we will be offering the T Level Health, T Level Education & Childcare and a number of T Level Construction courses.
