T Levels

T Levels are a revolution in technical education and we are proud to be introducing them to students from September 2024.

T Levels focus on high-level technical study and work-ready skills.  They combine the career focus and practical elements of current vocational qualifications like BTECs with the theory and study skills of traditional A Levels.

They will help you develop the knowledge, attitude and practical skills that you will need to thrive in your future career, whether that is skilled employment, a higher apprenticeship, or a degree at university.

Equivalent to 3 A Levels

T Levels are a highly credible alternative to A Levels. They earn the same UCAS points as three A Levels and are accepted by universities.

Backed by business

T Levels have been designed with leading businesses and employers to give you the knowledge and skills you need for a successful career.

How are T Levels taught?

T Levels are a two-year course, just like A Levels. 

80% of your course will be at college, gaining the knowledge and practical skills that employers need. The remaining 20% is a meaningful industry placement, where you will put these skills into action.

Assessment for T Levels is a combination of exams, coursework, workplace observations, an employer project and an end point assessment.  To pass the qualification you must fully complete the industry placement.

Entry requirements

Five GCSEs at grade 5 or above, including English and maths.

Effective industry placement

You will complete at least 45 days in a placement with an employer during your two-year course.  This means that you will develop the workplace skills that employers are looking for and gain a clear idea about the sector and what different jobs involve.

A successful placement may even result in a job offer from your placement employer!
