T Levels are a brand-new 2-year qualification for learners aged 16-18 that provide an alternative pathway to A-Levels, BTECs and Apprenticeships. T Levels bring classroom and work placement together on a course designed with employers and businesses to give you the skills and knowledge employers are looking for. They follow GCSEs and are equivalent to 3 A-Levels and will attract UCAS points that will support you to progress into an entry level skilled job, a higher apprenticeship or on to further study, including at university.
