In addition to our exciting Diplomas, Tech Baccs and Apprenticeships, from September 2022 we will also offer T Levels in a number of courses.
What are T Levels?
T Levels are a new qualification for 16–18 year-olds, introduced by the government to give you more options to gain those essential workplace skills and experience. They are an alternative to A Levels and equivalent courses, but they have more of a technical focus (hence the name!). They offer a mix of classroom learning and ‘on-the-job’ experience which includes a substantial industry placement of at least 315 hours.
Why should I study a T Level?
These new qualifications, which take two years to complete, have been designed with industry experts to provide you with the skills employers are looking for. They will enable you to thrive in the workplace while giving businesses the workforce they need to succeed.
As well as gaining technical knowledge, practical skills and workplace experience specific to your industry, you’ll also learn relevant maths, English and digital skills. When you complete your T Level you’ll get a nationally recognised certificate which will look great on your CV!
Am I suited to studying a T Level?
T Levels offer a technical route into your chosen industry and would be a good option if you’re looking for an alternative to a purely academic A Level route.
What T Levels will Reaseheath offer from 2022?
