T Levels at B&FC

WHAT ARE T LEVELS?

 

T Levels are a new technical qualification, which became effective from September 2020.

 
  • Takes two years and is equivalent to 3 A Levels
  • Gives you UCAS points for university
  • Combines classroom and work-based learning
  • Is designed with industry leaders to give you a career edge
  • T Levels are studied five days a week , with 80% of your time in the classroom and the other 20% on a relevant industry placement, getting real on-the-job-experience.

WHAT YOU'LL GET

Core industry skills and knowledge

Specialist skills and knowledge relevant to your chosen career

A minimum 315-hour (45 day) industry placement with an employer

Relevant maths, English and digital skills

You will be assessed by exams for the core skills and practical skills tests for the occupation (career) specialisms.

T Levels are career-focused, with a significant industry placement allowing you to develop the knowledge and skills you need to compete for the best university places, higher/degree apprenticeships and highly skilled careers.

T Levels are for young people who are academically strong and ambitious to get ahead in high-level technical occupations (next level skills for next level jobs). They provide the chance to learn what a real career is like while studying.

Need to level up your English and Maths?
If you narrowly missed the required English and Maths grades, sign up for a one-year Pre-T Level.

This includes up to two GCSE resits and gets you set for your T Level.

T LEVELS VERSUS A LEVELS?

 

T Levels and A Levels have exactly the same entry requirements - and both lead straight to university.

If you already have a career goal in mind, a T Level will give you the experience and skills to help get you there.
