The Parents’ Guide to T Levels

T Levels are an exciting new option in sixth form education that provide a recognized qualification tailored to industry needs and skills. It’s a great choice for students that want to learn practical skills relevant to certain jobs, regardless of whether they want to go on to study for a degree, take alternative further education or go straight into the workplace after sixth form.

Introduced in 2020, T Levels are a vocational alternative to A levels (because they focus on industry) and include practical study as well as classroom learning.

If you (or your child) are considering whether to take one, download a free parent guide to help make the right choice! The guide includes information on:

  • What’s involved and where it might lead afterwards
  • The subject choices available as of 2022
  • What they’ll learn on the course
  • The qualifications needed to take them
  • The Transition Programme for those struggling to meet minimum entry requirements
  • The industry placement
  • A summary of alternative options if T Levels are not right for them
