What to expect from the course

T Levels are new technical qualifications - designed with industry leaders. T Levels are studied five days a week; with 80% of your time in the classroom and the other 20%, on a relevant industry placement. The duration of the course is two years, and you’ll ultimately achieve an equivalent of three A Levels.

These qualifications are unique. They are for young people who are academically strong, ambitious and who want to get ahead in high-level technical occupations. They provide the opportunity to learn and participate in an industry placement, to best experience what their career will be like, whilst studying.

T Levels are career-focused - with an industry placement allowing you to develop the knowledge and skills you need to enable you to compete for highly skilled careers, higher apprenticeships, or university places.
