About T Levels

T Levels are a new qualification for students aged 16-19 who've finished GCSEs. They sit alongside A Levels and apprenticeships to give young people the technical and practical skills needed to be an asset in the workplace.

T Levels combine classroom learning with a substantial industry placement.

Welcome to the next level - T Levels. The post-GCSE qualification that combines in-class learning and work experience. It's the best of both worlds, where theory meets practice. It's the know-how.

T Levels are designed with 250 leading employers, so students can focus on the knowledge and skills businesses really need today and tomorrow. The subject list is growing year on year, with 24 courses available by 2023. Each one opening doors to work placements, industry contacts and career paths.

This is more than a qualification. Designed with employers, we're creating young people who are work ready. Full of fresh ideas and practical skills ready to shake up the industry and take businesses to the next level.

So what are you waiting for? Get clued up, skilled up and levelled up. Opportunities are there for the taking.

Get ahead.
