T Levels will help you build the future you want.

T Level students spend 80% of the course in the classroom, learning the skills that employers need. The other 20% is a meaningful industry placement, where students put these skills into action.
T Levels are an alternative to A levels, apprenticeships and other 16 to 19 courses. Equivalent to 3 A levels, a T Level focuses on vocational skills and can help students into skilled employment, higher study or apprenticeships.
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.
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.
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 – when and how you complete it depends on the T Level, college and employer.
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.
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.
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.
