T Levels Information for Students

What are T Levels?

T Levels are a brand 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 T Level qualification brings classroom and work placement together on a course designed with employers and businesses.

You’ll spend 80% of your time in the classroom and 20% on a 45-day placement to give you the skills and knowledge employers are looking for.

Your T Level will help you to step straight into your chosen career, an Apprenticeship or a degree.

Wherever your future is heading, take it to the next level.

When do T Levels start?

T Levels are being introduced in phases. The first T Levels at City College Plymouth will start in September 2022 in the following subject areas: 

  • construction
  • digital
  • education and childcare
  • engineering and manufacturing
  • health and science.
What’s the difference between a T Level and an Apprenticeship?

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.
