About T Levels

T Levels are a brand-new, 2-year qualification that you can do 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.

A new choice

T Levels are ideal if you have finished your GCSEs and want the knowledge and experience to get straight into employment, an apprenticeship or higher education.

You’ll spend 80% of your time in the classroom and 20% on a 45-day placement with an employer to give you the skills and knowledge companies look for.

Coming in 2020

One T level takes 2 years of full-time study and is equivalent to 3 A Levels.

The first 3 T Levels start in September 2020 at selected colleges and schools in England, with more coming in the following years.
