What are T-Levels?
T-Levels started in September 2020 and there are now over 20 T Level subjects to choose from.

T Levels are a 2-year qualification that you can do after GCSEs as an alternative to A levels, other post-16 courses or an apprenticeship.

They have been designed with leading businesses and employers to give you the knowledge and skills you need.

Get ahead in your career

You’ll spend 80% of your time in the classroom and 20% on 45-day good quality placements – in Year 1 you will be at the MAT offices to build your corporate experience and in Year 2 you will be placed with an external employer to give you the skills and knowledge companies look for.

Your industry placements give you the chance to learn what a real career is like while you continue your studies.

Like A levels, there are no tuition fees to study a T Level if you start before you are 19.

Equivalent to 3 A Levels and awarded UCAS points

Your T Level will be worth UCAS points (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 you can choose to continue studying if you wish.

26 of the top 50 universities in The Guardian’s Best UK Universities 2022 Rankings have agreed to accept T Level students (as of August 2022).

Qualifications that count

When you pass your T Level, you will get a nationally recognised certificate showing the overall grade you achieved – pass, merit, distinction or distinction*. It will also give details of what you learned on the course to help you move into skilled employment or a higher apprenticeship.
