What are T Levels?
T Levels are technical-based qualifications in England 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 are two-year courses that can be studied by 16-18 year olds after finishing their GCSEs. T Levels are the equivalent of three A Levels and are accepted for admission to many leading universities.
Why T Levels?
T Levels are different to the traditional route of A Levels as they focus on the skill acquisition required to move directly into industry. Courses consist of around 80% of time spent in the classroom with the remaining 20% spent being on a valuable work placement in a relevant workplace. This differs from an Apprenticeship where around 80% of time is spent with an employer and 20% in the classroom and is more suited to those who feel ready to enter the workforce at age 16 while learning at the same time.
