What are T Levels?

T Levels are a 2-year qualification that are delivered by schools and colleges and are endorsed by business. T Levels provide students a mixture of classroom learning and ‘on-the-job’ experience during an industry placement of at least 45 days. They provide the knowledge and experience needed to open the door into skilled employment, further study or a higher apprenticeship.

  • A T Level, will give you 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.
  • A T Level takes two years of full time study and is 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.
  • 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.
  • You can undertake a T Level 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.
  • The T Level is made up of 80% time in the classroom and 20% on a 45-day placement with an employer to give you the skills and knowledge companies look for.
