What is a T Level?
T Levels are qualifications approved and managed by the Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education. A T Level is a technical study programme, aimed at preparing young people for work, higher-level apprenticeships or higher education (HE). It comprises 5 key components:
• an approved Technical Qualification, which includes the opportunity to specialise in at least one occupational role
• a minimum of 315 hours of industry placement with an external employer
• English, mathematics and digital requirements; students will have to achieve a minimum of Level 2 mathematics and English in order to achieve a T Level
• Employability, Enrichment, and Pastoral (EEP) elements
Over the 2-year programme, students will develop threshold competence, which the Institute defines as: ‘The level of competence deemed by employers as sufficient to secure employment in roles relevant to an occupational specialism. Achievement of threshold competence signals that a learner is well placed to develop full occupational competence, with further support and development, once in work.’
