T-Levels, are technical-based qualifications which sit alongside apprenticeships. They combine classroom study with industrial placements for students post GCSE and are designed to help bridge the gap between education and work. They have been developed in collaboration with employers and businesses so that the content meets the needs of industry and prepares students for work, further training or study.
T Levels consist of two-year courses that can be studied by 16-18 year old T Levels and are based on the same standards as apprenticeship and are approved by the Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education.
The highest T Level qualification, a starred distinction, will be worth the equivalent of three A*s at A Level when a student is being considered for a place in higher education, giving them 168 UCAS points
- a broad knowledge; with skills and behaviours necessary for employment in an occupation or industry related to their field of study
- an opportunity to develop specialist technical skills relevant to at least one occupation
- the relevant English, Maths, Science and Digital skills
- a minimum of 315 hours of industrial placement (around 45 days)
