T Levels are new nationally recognised qualifications that are taken over 2 years after GCSEs.
With a combination of 80% classroom learning and 20% work placements, these qualifications are career-focused and an alternative to A Levels, particularly appealing to students who have a career pathway in mind.
One T Level is equivalent to 3 A Levels.
Listen to our Deputy Principal, Rob Myatt, and Head of T Levels, Jo Hartley-Metcalfe, give a brief explanation of what to expect from studying the Science T Level at Birkenhead Sixth Form College:
Why choose A T Level?
- They are a new option after GCSEs and nationally recognised by employers, apprenticeship providers and universities
- Courses have been designed with leading sector experts to develop the relevant skills and knowledge for specific career paths
- They give students the chance to learn what a real career is like while continuing to study
- 45 days of placements are included in the course and placements are arranged by the College
What do T Levels lead to?
Employment, higher-level apprenticeship or university are all options at the end of the two years.
A T Level Distinction* is worth the same as 3 A Levels at A* and will be recognised by universities and other education providers so students can choose to continue to study further.
