We are proud to have been selected to offer three brand new T Level Programmes for 2022
So what are T Levels?
The ‘T’ stands for “Technical” and they are Level 3 qualifications that will give 16 to 19 year olds a high quality technical alternative to A-levels. One T Level is equivalent to 3 A-levels and will attract the same number of UCAS points (depending on the grades achieved), so students can use them to progress to University. T Levels are a full time programme and are taught in College. However they also include a valuable industry placement for a minimum of 315 hours (approximately 45 days) which is delivered in the workplace. This placement is unpaid and you remain a college student, rather than an employee of the company.
What do the courses cover?
The exciting new T Level programmes will provide our students with:
- The broad knowledge, skills and behaviours necessary for employment in an industry related to their field of study
- The opportunity to develop specialist technical skills needed for a related occupation
- Relevant maths, English and digital skills.
Successfully completing a T Level will give you a progression pathway to skilled employment, higher or degree-level apprenticeships and University.
Are they all Level 3?
For construction students not ready to go directly onto a level three T Level qualification, there is a T Level transition programme available in design, surveying and planning. This is a one year course and successful completion will give you the skills you need to move on to the full T Level the following year.
