T Levels are an alternative to A levels and apprenticeships, giving young people the technical and practical skills needed to be an asset in the workplace. T Levels combine classroom learning with a substantial industry placement.
Designed with employers, for employers: Employers have told us that they face a skills shortage that could impact the future success of your businesses. In response, the government has worked alongside hundreds of employers to design T Level courses that deliver the skills your organisations need.
EQUIVALENT TO 3 A LEVELS
T Levels are an alternative to A levels, apprenticeships and other 16 to 19 courses. Equivalent in size to 3 A levels, a T Level focuses on vocational skills and can help students into skilled employment, higher study or apprenticeships.
A 45-DAY INDUSTRY PLACEMENT
Each T Level includes an in-depth industry placement that lasts at least 45 days. Students get valuable experience in the workplace; employers get early sight of the new talent in their industry.
80% CLASSROOM, 20% WORK
T Level students spend 80% of the course in their learning environment, gaining the skills that employers need. The other 20% is a meaningful industry placement, where they put these skills into action.
