T Levels

T Levels are a qualification after GCSE that will take your future to the next level. T Levels are an alternative to A Levels, apprenticeships and other 16-19 courses.

Equivalent to 3 A Levels

A T Level focuses on vocational skills and can help students into skilled employment, higher study or apprenticeships.

With T Levels and A Levels equally recognised by universities, employers and other organisations, the choice of which route to take is up to you.

For example, achieving a Distinction* in your T Level is equivalent to achieving three A*s at A Level – both worth a total of 168 UCAS Tariff points.

80% Classroom, 20% Workplace

You will spend 80% of your time in a learning environment, gaining the skills employers look for. The other 20% of the time, you will be involved in a meaningful industry placement, where you can put your skills into practice.

The placement is a fantastic opportunity to put into practice the things you have learnt, to further develop your skills and knowledge, and to try out a potential career path.
