T Levels summer 2024 assessment series – what you need to know

T Levels are a high-quality, work-focused alternative to A Levels for those aged 16 – 18. These two-year courses are designed with employers to intimately reflect the needs of the sectors and occupations they’re designed to serve.

After completing their two-year T Level, students will have the necessary knowledge, skills, and behaviours to successfully progress into work or higher-level study.

Innovative qualifications  

We use deep insight into what employers need to design qualifications for a future highly skilled, adaptive workforce. Our T Levels come under three main subject areas:   

Key points you need to know about T Levels: 
  • Courses last two years

  • Created in collaboration with employers
  • Include a substantial industry placement
  • Attract UCAS points
  • Support progression into skilled work and higher or degree level apprenticeships, higher level technical study, including university.
