What are T Levels?

T Levels are new courses that started in September 2020, which will follow GCSEs and will be equivalent to three A levels.

These two-year courses have been developed in collaboration with employers and businesses, so that the content meets the needs of industry and prepares students for work.

T Levels will offer students a mixture of classroom learning and ‘on-the-job’ experience during an industry placement of at least 45 days. They will provide the knowledge and experience needed to open the door into skilled employment, further study or a higher apprenticeship.

How does it work?

T Levels consist of a number of components:

An approved technical qualification that provides technical knowledge and practical skills specific to a learner's chosen industry or occupation.

A work placement of at least 45 days in their chosen industry or occupation.

Transferable workplace skills.

Each T Level will consist of 1800 hours on average over two years including the work placement of at least 45 days.

The content for the technical qualification will be based on the same standards as apprenticeships and will be approved by the IfATE.
