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.
Doing a 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 university.
Higher-level study could take the form of a Higher Technical Qualification (HTQ). These are qualifications at Levels 4 and 5 and prepare you for technical occupations.
