Designed with businesses and employers, T Levels are two-year, technical qualifications designed to give students the skills that industry needs. They bring classroom learning and an extended industry placement together.
T Levels are equivalent to 3 A Levels and other Level 3 vocational qualifications but are structured slightly differently into three main parts.
• Technical qualification (TQ) is the main, classroom-based element. Students will learn about their chosen sectors through a curriculum designed with employers.
• Industry placement runs for a minimum of 315 hours (45 days) overall and will give students practical insights into their sector and an opportunity to embed the knowledge and skills learned in the classroom.
• English, maths and digital provision is also built into the classroom-based element of the T Level, meaning students will be given a solid foundation of transferable skills. Students who achieve a T Level will get a nationally recognised certificate which employers will use as evidence in their recruitment.
