So what is a T Level?

T Levels are new courses which will follow GCSEs and will be equivalent to 3 A Levels and last for two years.

The College is set to deliver T Levels from 2021.
Applications for T Levels will be open in October 2020.

T Levels will offer students a mixture of classroom learning and ‘on-the-job’ experience during an industry placement of at least 315 hours (approximately 45 days). They will provide the knowledge and experience needed to open the door into skilled employment, further study or a higher apprenticeship.

Progression routes
