Your T Level questions answered
Are T Levels recognised by employers?
T Level qualifications have been created with employers who know what they’re looking for, which means they’re recognised by them and valued. They will increase your skills and employability, and include a longer, more meaningful work placement compared to other programmes.
T Levels are just as valid as A levels, they’re the high quality technical alternative to academic exams and might suit some students’ learning styles better.
Where to after T Levels?
T Levels can open up a wide range of progression opportunities for students to consider.
- A skilled occupation
- Higher or degree level apprenticeships
- Higher level technical study, including university.
When will they be delivered?
T Levels will be introduced over 3 years, starting from the 2020-21 academic year. All pathways from all routes will be available by 2023.
Here are five things you need to know about T levels:
- They’ll provide a new, work-focused alternative to A levels for young people
- They’re being developed in close consultation with business and current practitioners
- They’ll include a substantial ‘industry placement’ to help young people develop skills
- They’ll provide a structured route to higher education and work
- They’re being phased in from this September
