T Levels are a 2-year course that offers a combination of classroom and workplace learning, designed with employers, to give you the skills that industries need. They are ideal for you if you want to get hands-on experience and learn skills that will get you a job in a technical profession, for example, Healthcare, Science, Childcare, Engineering, Accountancy, or Media. To succeed in your chosen T Level, you need to show technical knowledge, specific learned abilities, concepts, and skills for the industry area, and a basic working knowledge of the occupations and career paths in your chosen field.
Every T Level includes an on-the-job industry placement with an employer, with 315 hours (approximately 45 days) of content and training within your chosen sector, either as a day release or a block of days together. Workplace learning focuses on developing the practical and technical skills you need.
T Levels are supported by The Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) and National Apprenticeship Service (part of ESFA), working with employers to design the industry placement around the student.
