Technical levels (T Levels) are a new qualification that will be equal to three A Levels.
Available to school leavers after they have completed their GCSEs, T Levels offer an alternative to A Levels or an apprenticeship.
The difference between a T and an A level is that with a T Level, 80% of the course is in the classroom, learning the skills that employers need. The other 20% is a meaningful industry placement, where you’ll put these skills into practice.
T Levels have been designed in collaboration with employers and businesses, so that you will learn everything you need to prepare for the workplace. They offer you more practical work experience and industry placement hours as part of your education than any other qualification currently available, except for apprenticeships.
As this is a new qualification for the whole of the UK, we have a page dedicated to explaining T Levels and its progression routes.
