T Levels

T Levels are key to the Government’s ambitious programme to provide the technical expertise for the jobs of the future. They are exciting new courses devised specifically with employers to ensure you learn relevant and up-to-date practices from the industry sector that interests you most.


T Levels are a 2-year qualification designed to give you a head start towards the career you want.

Why should I study a T Level?

These new qualifications, which take two years to complete, have been designed with industry experts to provide you with the skills employers are looking for. They will enable you to thrive in the workplace while giving businesses the workforce they need to succeed.

Am I suited to studying a T Level?

T Levels can be studied by anyone aged 16-19 (you must be 18 before the 31st August on academic year starting) and up to the age of 24 for students who have an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP).

Your Industry Placement

Having a substantial industry placement built into your course is a huge benefit to your studies. T Levels include a 315-hour (or 45 day) industry placement over the two-year course. Students gain valuable experience and essential workplace skills; employers get early sight of the new talent in their industry.

Qualification Explained

T Levels are an alternative to A levels, apprenticeships and other 16 to 19 courses. Equivalent in size to 3 A levels, a T Level focuses on vocational skills and can help students into skilled employment, higher study or apprenticeships.


Entry Requirements & Progression

Following on from your GCSEs, T Levels are equivalent to 3 A Levels and the highest grade you can achieve is a Distinction* which is worth 168 UCAS points (equal to 3A* at A Level).
