What are T-levels?

The Government has reviewed Post – GCSE qualifications to create a simpler, high quality system that students, parents and employers understand.

A brand new Suite of qualifications have been developed called T-Levels. The T in T-Levels stands for Technical.

T-levels are a 2 year technical study programme that includes a qualification together with an industry placement to provide students a technical alternative.

T-levels will be one of the three main options for students and will be equivalent to 3 A-levels.

Why choose a T-Level?

T-Levels are a Level 3 academic alternative to A-Levels. They provide a supportive environment to develop professional skills and knowledge to develop in the workplace and become ready for work.

This new level 3 qualification will be developed in collaboration with employers and businesses. They will provide the knowledge and experience needed to open the door into skilled employment, further study or higher apprenticeships.

T-levels will include roughly 20% of the time being spent on a work placement lasting at least 315 hours and 80% in the classroom.
