Course information

What are T-Levels?

T- Levels are aimed at 16 to 19-year-olds, and follow their progression from GCSE’s, T-levels are aimed at students seeking an alternative to A-levels.

T-Levels will offer a mix of classroom study and technical training (practical), with an industry placement of at least 315 hours – (approximately nine weeks) along with the academic subjects.

Those who successfully complete their T-Level will be awarded one of four overall grades, ranging from a Distinction* to a Pass. Students who achieve the very top grade in their T-level qualification will have the equivalent of three A*s at A-level.

Entry requirements
