T-Levels For Students
(TO START SEPTEMBER 2024)
What Are T-Levels?
T-Levels are new two-year, technical study programmes that will initially be available across 24 pathways in 11 industry routes. They are delivered in a classroom based environment with 20% of the time spent on an industry placement working in employer settings.
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.
Why choose a T-Level?
Created with Business, T-Levels have been designed with leading businesses and employers to give you the knowledge and skills you need.
More than 200 businesses have been involved so you can be confident your T-Level will move you to the next level. You will gain professional development and specific sector skills in a real work environment.
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, college and employer.
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.
