Why choose T Levels?
A T Level is a nationally-recognised qualification that is worth the same number of UCAS points as 3 A levels.
Endorsed by business, they include a 45-day industry placement to help you learn what a real career is like.
- Created with business T Levels have been designed with leading businesses and employers to give you the knowledge and skills you need. More than 200 businesses – including Fujitsu and Skanska – have been involved so you can be confident your T Level will move you to the next level.
- Get ahead in your career T Levels give you the chance to learn what a real career is like while you continue your studies. Your industry placement will last for at least 45 days
- Qualifications that count When you pass your T Level, you will get a nationally recognised certificate showing the overall grade you achieved - pass, merit, distinction or distinction*. It will also give details of what you learned on the course to help you move into skilled employment or a higher apprenticeship.
- 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.
- Learn your way T Levels involve more classroom study than apprenticeships, which means you can experience an industry while you continue your studies. Like A levels, there are no tuition fees to study a T Level if you start before you are 19. Schools and colleges set their own entry requirements, so check their website or contact them direct to find out more.
About T Levels
T Levels are a brand-new, 2-year qualification that you can do as an alternative to A levels, other post-16 courses or an apprenticeship. They bring classroom learning and an extended industry placement together on a course designed with businesses and employers.
T Levels are ideal if you have finished your GCSEs and want the knowledge and experience to get straight into employment, an apprenticeship or higher education. 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.
One T level takes 2 years of full-time study and is equivalent to 3 A levels. The first 3 T Levels have started at selected colleges and schools in England, with more coming in the following years.
