T Levels For students
T Levels are new and exciting qualifications for 16- to 19-year-olds in full-time education. They have been developed in collaboration with employers, so the content meets the needs of industry and prepares you for work.
Where could your T Level qualification take you?
Your T Level will provide you with the knowledge and experience needed to open the door to skilled employment, an apprenticeship or higher-level study, including Higher Technical Qualifications and university.
T Levels offer students a mixture of classroom learning and ‘on-the-job’ experience.
- They will provide the knowledge and experience needed to open the door into skilled employment, further study or a higher apprenticeship.
- 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.
