T Level is an Industry based qualification introduced in the education system in England as part of a reform to technical education. They are designed to offer students aged 16 to 19 a more vocational and practical route of study, focusing on specific industry sectors.

T Levels are equivalent to three A-levels. They combine classroom-based learning with practical work experience, allowing students to develop both theoretical knowledge and practical skills in their chosen field.

The T Level program is two year course and includes mandatory industry placement of at least 315 hours (45 days), giving students the opportunity to apply their learning in a real- world work setting. The aim is to prepare students for skilled employment or higher-level technical study/apprenticeship.

As a Trust we will be offering T Levels placements in engineering and business management.
