What are T Levels?
T Levels are brand new and exciting courses that are a progression from GCSEs and are equivalent to three A Levels. Each T Level takes two years to complete, with the support from employers that have been key in developing these qualifications. T Levels are designed to prepare you for the world of work, further training or study.
If you are hoping to complete university-level study in the future, T Levels are sure to support you in your journey. UCAS points will be attached to T Levels, providing you achieve a pass in your chosen option.
How will I be taught?
T Levels will be a combination of classroom learning and ‘on-the-job’ experience during a job placement. You will spend at least 315 hours (approximately 45 days) completing your placement.
