T levels for employers

A new qualification developed in collaboration with employers.

Discover your future workforce

T Levels are a new, two-year Level 3 qualification for 16-to-19-year-olds. Designed with employers, each T Level is equivalent to three A Levels and helps young people develop the knowledge, attitude and practical skills to progress into skilled employment, an apprenticeship or further study.

Combining academic theory with practical skills, a T Level student will split their time between the classroom and a mandatory industry placement.

As an employer, you can support the workforce of the future by either offering a 45-day industry placement, or by working with us to shape the cirriculumn and decide on what skills our students need to learn.

What is an industry placement?

Industry placements are a shift from traditional work experience to a longer, more structured placement in the workplace for young people to develop real work skills and make a meaningful contribution to your organisation.

For a T Level student, these will last at least 315 hours, but for some T Levels this could be more.

If you are an employer in England, you can offer an industry placement to a T Level student.

How much does it cost?

T Level industry placements are a free government scheme - you don’t need to pay to take on a T Level student for a placement.

There may be certain business costs, like time invested in planning, training and supervising, and you can choose to pay the student if you wish.
