T Levels FAQs

All your questions answered about T Levels.

T Levels are a new qualification designed to give you a head start towards the future you want. They follow GCSEs and are equivalent to three A Levels. The two-year qualification brings classroom and work placement together, on a course designed with employers and businesses.

T Levels are ideal if you have completed your GCSEs and want to get the knowledge and experience needed to get a skilled job.

Yes, you can. T Levels get you work ready, but you can continue studying with a higher Apprenticeship or degree.

T Levels are designed with  businesses and employers, to make sure you have the skills and knowledge they are looking for in an employee.

T Levels give you the opportunity to experience an industry while you continue your studies, with the opportunity to specialise later. While gaining practical experience, you also achieve the qualifications needed to move into a higher level of study, if you choose to later.

Apprenticeships are paid, work-based training for those who know what occupation they want to pursue.

T Levels are A Level-equivalent courses and for this reason, you will need at least a grade 4 in English, maths and science. Some subjects will require higher than a 5 so please check the individual T Level.

The entry requirements for T Levels are similar to those of A Levels, with students required to gain a grade 4 (or possibly a 5 for certain subjects) or above in English and maths. In some cases, a grade 4 or even a grade 5 in science will also be required.

When a student does not meet the entry requirements, they might be offered a T-Prep, which is a one-year course that will prepare students to progress to the T Level the following year. Students will retake English and maths as required alongside their T-Prep.

When a T-Prep is not an appropriate alternative, the College will work with the applicant to find a suitable course.
