What are 'T' Levels?
T Levels are new courses which follow GCSE's and are equivalent to 3 A-levels. These 2-year courses, which launched September 2020, have been developed in collaboration with employers and businesses so that the content meets the needs of industry and prepares students for work, further training or study.
T Levels offer students a mixture of classroom learning and ‘on-the-job’ experience during an industry placement of at least 315 hours (approximately 45 days).
If you’re interested in finding out more, visit the T Levels website where you can add your postcode to find colleges, schools or other providers who’ll be offering the first 3 T Levels in 2020.
HEPP work across our region to encourage more children to consider higher education opportunities. Here is some information about the benefits of higher education, myth busting and student finance.
