Who can do a T Level?

To do a T Level, you must have completed your GCSEs. T Levels are an option just like an A Level or a BTEC qualification.

Why choose T Levels?

T Levels have a 45 day on the job work placement where you will gain real, hands on skills in your chosen area combined with theory based learning, the majority of which is done in a classroom setting.

T Levels have been developed in collaboration with over 250 businesses to ensure students gain the necessary skills, knowledge and experience that employers are looking for.

What can I do after a T Level?

Once you have completed your T Level, you will be able to access skilled employment or a higher apprenticeship. T Levels also carry UCAS points so you have the option of going to University.

How is a T Level different to other qualifications?

Apprenticeships are predominantly work based with a small amount of time in the classroom for theory. A Levels are theory based with all learning in the classroom. T Levels are 80% theory and 20% practical.

T Levels are suitable for those who want industry knowledge and experience alongside their course, without the need to work full-time.

T Level transition programme:

The T Level transition programme is designed to get you ready for T levels. It is an opportunity to brush up on your Maths, English and workplace skills. If you do not have the required grade 4’s in Maths and English this will be your opportunity to re sit the exams before starting the T levels.
