As of September 2023, The Sheffield College will be offering T Levels to everybody leaving school and progressing into further education.
T Levels are a brand new 2-year qualification that mix classroom learning and industry experience in order to give you the skills and knowledge to help you progress into your dream career.
Keep reading to discover the ins and outs of T Levels, and if they’re the right choice for you.
T Levels are brand new 2-year study programmes which can be taken after you finish school in place of A Levels, Apprenticeships, or vocational study programmes.
T Levels have been created with input from both employers and education providers, meaning everything you will be taught is designed to prepare you for the world of work.
By studying T Levels, you will be taught through a mixture of classroom learning and a 45-day industry placement, providing you with both the theoretical knowledge and the practical skills that employers are looking for.
It can be difficult to decide what to study when leaving school. With so many different options, it’s important to fully understand the difference between each route in order to decide which one is right for you.
Vocational Study Programmes
As a brand-new qualification, T Levels are still being expanded to cover all industries. At The Sheffield College we will be offering T Levels in the following areas:
Like our vocational study programmes, A Levels and Apprenticeships, each T Level has specific entry requirements put in place to ensure you are studying at the correct intensity.
As T Levels are equivalent to a level 3 qualification, most subjects will have entry requirements of, 5 GCSEs at grade C/4 or above, including English Language and Maths.
Although T Levels are designed to get you ready for work, they also prepare you to progress into higher education. Upon completion of your T Level, you could choose to continue studying with a higher apprenticeship, or to apply for university.
T Levels have been designed alongside businesses and employers to make sure you gain the skills and knowledge they are looking for in a new employee. Upon completing a T Level, you will be in the perfect position to apply for entry level positions.

Education and Childcare
