The exciting new qualifications have been described as the biggest overhaul in post-school education for 70 years!

T-Levels are shaped by employers and benefit from the unique insights of industry leaders. This means learners will be equipped with the skills and knowledge they need to get ahead start in the modern jobs market.

As an integral part of the T-Level, learners complete a minimum of 315 hours (approximately 45 days) in an industry placement, where their focus will be on developing practical and technical skills.

The placement will be with an employer in a real life working environment.
