ABOUT T LEVELS
T Levels are a 2-year qualification that you can do after GCSEs as an alternative to A levels, other post-16 courses or an apprenticeship.
They have been designed with leading businesses and employers to give you the knowledge and skills you need.
GET AHEAD IN YOUR CAREER
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.
Your industry placement gives you the chance to learn what a real career is like while you continue your studies. When and how you complete it depends on the T Level, school or college, and employer.
Like A levels, there are no tuition fees to study a T Level if you start before you are 19.
EQUIVALENT TO 3 A LEVELS AND 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.
SUPPORTED BY BUSINESS
T Levels were designed with leading businesses and are now supported by employers of all sizes to give students the workplace skills they need to succeed.
Hundreds of employers – including Lloyds Banking Group, Nestlé, Yorkshire Water, Persimmon Homes and NHS Trusts across England – have hosted T Level students on industry placements.
Many employers retain T Level students on completion of their course and support progression within their business onto an apprenticeship or into another roles.
