T – Levels 

T Levels are technical-based qualifications in England. They have been developed in collaboration with employers and businesses, with content that meets the needs of industry and prepares students for work, further training, or study. 

T Levels are two-year courses that can be studied by 16-18 year olds after finishing their GCSEs. 

T Levels are equivalent to 3 A Levels, with the aim to support the young person to develop their skills, knowledge and to thrive in the workplace. Students choose different T Level specialisms, and develop the key skills required in industry such as Health and Social Care.
