Introducing new T-levels – starting September 2020
Equivalent to three A-levels, T-levels are new courses starting in September 2020 that follow GCSEs and are designed in direct collaboration with employers and businesses so the content meets the needs of industry head-on.
These two-year courses offer students a mix of classroom learning and ‘on-the-job’ experience and provide the knowledge and experience needed to open the door into skilled employment, further study or a higher apprenticeship.
Crucially, T-levels include an invaluable industry placement of at least 45 days – more than existing technical courses - to give students the best start to their career.
As a renowned specialist in vocational courses, University College Birmingham is one of the very first colleges in the UK to offer this new qualification, starting with a T-level in Education in September 2020. For more information on T-levels, visit www.tlevels.gov.uk.
Across the UK, the Government is set to launch T-levels in the following subject areas (specific T-levels available at University College Birmingham will be confirmed from 2020):
- Agriculture, land management and production
