T Levels are a new qualification that follow GCSEs and are equivalent to 3 A Levels. The 2-year programme brings classroom and work placement together, on a course designed with employers and businesses.
Similar to A Levels, T Levels are a full-time two-year study programme.
There is a huge range of options to choose from, with more added yearly. You can find the full list of T Level courses that we offer here.
Applying for a T Level is just the same as applying for any course with us. Simply use our online ‘Find a course’ tool, and follow the instructions.
Alternatively, you can request and complete a paper form. If you have any difficulties, please get in touch with our Information & Advice team by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 01278 455464.
An industry placement lasts for around 45 days, undertaken as a block or as individual days. The specific length of the placement and when it will take place will differ depending on your T Level.
