T Levels are qualifications that combine classroom learning with an industry placement and are designed for 16-18 year olds.

They are two-year courses and an exciting alternative full Level 3 qualification. These high-quality courses will allow you to develop hands-on practical skills to progress onto university or straight into employment.


What are T Levels?

  • Equivalent to three A Levels and carry UCAS points
  • Combine classroom learning (80%) with on-the-job work experience (20%)
  • Complete a 45-day industry placement and have the opportunity to experience a real workplace setting
  • Courses have been developed in collaboration with employers and businesses to make sure you develop the practical skills needed for your future


The T Level study programme option will appeal strongly to students who:

  • Want to complete an industry placement as part of their qualification
  • Would like to apply theory in real workplace settings
  • Are looking to pursue a high-quality technical route into skilled employment, further study or higher/degree apprenticeships
