What are they?
T Levels are a new technical qualification, designed in collaboration with employers, to deliver a qualification that is the equivalent of three A Levels, and provides the occupational and employability skills required to enter the world of work. With a T Level, 20% of your study time will be spent in a workplace, developing your skills for the world of work. They take two years. It is expected that T Levels will replace most BTEC courses in the future.
Why? A T Level has a specific occupational specialism, meaning you will be developing the working knowledge and skills to work in that profession in the future. The qualification will prepare you for working in that specific industry, and/or progressing onto a Higher Education course linked to your occupational specialism. As they are designed by employers, you can be certain that they will be competitive qualifications for entering employment in that chosen sector.
