What is a T Level?
T Levels are a brand new two year qualification designed to give you a head start towards the career you want. They have been designed for 16 to 19-year-olds and offer a mixture of classroom learning and work placement. They follow GCSEs, gain you UCAS points and are equivalent to three A Levels.
This T Level has been developed with employers and businesses to prepare you to step straight into your chosen career, an apprenticeship or university.
