T Levels

Welcome to the next level

T Levels are a brand new qualification designed to give you a head start towards the future you want. 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.

The 2-year qualification, equivalent to 3 A levels, brings the classroom and an extended work placement together, on a course designed in collaboration with the best businesses and employers.

You’ll spend 80% of your time in the classroom and 20% on a 45-day placement with an employer to give you the skills and knowledge companies look for.

Why choose T Levels?

Why choose T Levels

A T Level is a nationally-recognised qualification that is worth the same number of UCAS points as 3 A levels and accepted by universities.

Endorsed by business, they include a 45-day industry placement to help you learn what a real career is like.

About T Levels

T Levels are a 2-year qualification that you can do as an alternative to A levels, other post-16 courses or an apprenticeship.

They bring classroom learning and an extended industry placement together on a course designed with businesses and employers.

A new choice

T Levels 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 45-day placement with an employer to give you the skills and knowledge companies look for.

Equivalent to 3 A-Levels

One T Level takes 2 years of full-time study and is equivalent in size to 3 A levels.

The first T Levels have started at BCoT.

Created with business

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

More than 250 businesses – including Fujitsu and Skanska – have been involved so you can be confident your T Level will move you to the next level.

Get ahead in your career

T Levels give you the chance to learn what a real career is like while you continue your studies.

Your industry placement will last for at least 45 days – when and how you complete it depends on the T Level, school or college, and employer. Check out student views on industry placements.

Qualifications that count

When you pass your T Level, you will get a nationally recognised certificate showing the overall grade you achieved - pass, merit, distinction or distinction*. It will also give details of what you learned on the course to help you move into skilled employment or a higher apprenticeship.

Awarded UCAS points

Your T Level will be worth UCAS points – a T Level Distinction* is worth the same as 3 A levels at A* – and will be recognised by universities and other education providers so you can choose to continue studying if you wish.

Learn your way

T Levels involve more classroom study than apprenticeships, which means you can experience an industry while you continue your studies.

Like A levels, there are no tuition fees to study a T Level if you start before you are 19. Schools and colleges set their own entry requirements, so check their website or contact them direct to find out more.

If you need more time to get ready for a T Level, speak to your school or college about the T Level Transition Programme – a 1-year course designed to prepare you for your chosen T Level.
