T Levels Pattern 2

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.

These two year courses follow GCSEs and have been co-created by the industry you want to be part of, so 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.

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

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.
