How will I learn?

T Levels will combine classroom theory, practical learning and a minimum 315 hours of industry placement with an employer to make sure students have real experience of the workplace.

The Technical Qualification (TQ) is the main classroom-based element of the T Level and will see students learning from a qualification that has been shaped by industry experts. During the two-year programme, students will learn the core knowledge that underpins the industry.

In addition, you will also develop occupationally specific skills that will allow them to enter skilled employment within a specific occupation.

How will I be assessed?

The Technical Qualification components are awarded at the grade ranges of Pass, Merit Distinction and Distinction*. The Core Component uses an aggregation of points from each of the Core Assessments to calculate the A* to E.

In order to be awarded the T Level, a student must complete both components and achieve a minimum of a grade E in the Core and a Pass in the Occupational Specialism.
