Employers

T Levels

T Level industry placements are the ‘on the job’ element of the T Level qualification, which brings educators and employers together to provide quality technical training. T Levels are designed for 16-19-year-olds.

One T Level is equivalent to three A Levels, with students working at levels two and three. The course is designed to be 20% practical experience with an employer, with the remainder as classroom-based learning. This allows students to develop the technical skills relevant to your business and the unique opportunity to put their learning into practice.
