T Levels are new, high-quality technical qualifications - an exciting alternative to A-levels and apprenticeships that combine classroom theory with practical learning and an industry placement within a rigorous and substantial qualification. 

Watch our introduction to T Levels video to discover what it will be like to study a technical qualification at Bury College:

  • T Levels are two-year technical qualifications which have been developed in collaboration with employers and businesses to meet the needs of different industries
  • You will complete a 45-day industry placement as part of your qualification
  • T Levels are equivalent to three A-levels and have UCAS tariff points
  • Develop practical skills, knowledge and behaviours that show you are occupationally competent
  • Apply theory in real workplace settings
  • Combine classroom learning (80%) with on-the-job employment experience (20%)
  • Pursue a high-quality technical route into skilled employment, further study or higher/degree apprenticeships
  • The qualification is made up of core knowledge, understanding and concepts, specialist content covering occupational or industry-specific skills and an industry placement with an employer which will last a minimum of 45 days

The 45 day work experience placement will give you the opportunity to gain the technical training needed to progress directly into industry.
