T Levels

T levels Welcome banner

T Levels are a brand new 'gold standard', 2 year Level 3 qualification that will give you a head start towards the future you want. Developed by employers they are equivalent to 3 A Levels.


T Levels combine classroom learning with an extended industry placement, on a programme designed with employers and businesses.


They are ideal if you have finished your GCSEs and want the knowledge and experience to get straight into employment, an Apprenticeship or higher education. You’ll spend 80% of your time in the classroom and 20% on a 315 hour placement, where an employer will give you the knowledge and skills companies look for.
