T Level Contracts Delivered by Pearson 

Pearson are delighted to be delivering a number of the T Level contracts. Construction and Digital are now available for teaching. Plus, we are developing two Technical Qualifications for the Wave 3 T Level contracts.  

Cindy Rampersaud, Senior Vice President at Pearson UK, said:  

"We are delighted to be delivering the Finance and Accounting T Level pathways from September 2022.  We look forward to supporting learners as they begin their programmes of study, and playing our part in developing talent in two areas which are so vital for our economy.  
"We will draw on our experience of delivering first wave T Levels in the Construction and Digital pathways, as well as our longstanding collaboration and partnership with government, employers and providers to design, develop and deliver world class qualifications." 

What are T Levels?

T Levels are new courses coming 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.

English, maths and digital requirements (English and maths at a minimum of Level 2).

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.
