Thinking about what to do after GCSEs? T Levels are technical qualifications you can choose as an alternative to A levels, other post-16 courses or an apprenticeship.
- There are currently 10 T Level courses you can apply for at selected schools and colleges in England
- More T Levels will be coming soon, with more than 20 subjects available in the future, covering everything from agriculture to catering and engineering
- T Levels will also allow you to progress onto higher level apprenticeships or further study such as university
- Young people aged 16 to 19
- Schools and colleges set their own entry requirements for T Levels
- If you haven’t already achieved grade 4 Maths and English at GCSE you will need to work towards them alongside your T Level
- If you aren’t ready to start a T Level after GSCEs, the 1-year T Level Transition Programme can provide additional support to help you prepare
Time and course type:
- A T Level takes 2 years of full-time study and is equivalent to 3 A levels
- You’ll spend 80% of your time in the classroom and 20% on a placement with an employer so you get the skills and knowledge that companies look for
- There are no tuition fees to study a T Level if you start before you are 19
