Is this course for me?

So what are T Levels? They are high quality work focused alternatives to A levels. There is academic study, coupled with practical, industry related skills and 45 days of industry placement built into the course. T Levels are an alternative to A levels, apprenticeships and other vocational & technical courses. Equivalent to 3 A Levels, a T Level focuses on vocational skills and can help you into skilled employment, university study or apprenticeships. If you prefer a practical approach to learning yet want a predominantly classroom-based course the T Level is for you.
