T Levels

What are 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.

What are the benefits of taking a T Level?

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.

How long do T levels take?

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.

One T level takes two years of full-time study and is equivalent to three A levels.

The first T levels have started at selected colleges and schools in England, with more coming in the following years.
