Will they be recognised by employers
T Levels are designed with businesses and employers, to make sure you have the skills and knowledge they are looking for in an employee.

5 GCSEs at grades 4-9, including English and Maths.
Entry is also available via a one-year, Level 2 T Level Transitional Programme which can be discussed on application.
How are T Levels different from Apprenticeships
T Levels give you the opportunity to experience an industry while you continue your studies, with the opportunity to specialise later. While gaining practical experience, you will also achieve the qualifications needed to move into a higher level of study, if you choose to later.
Apprenticeships are paid, work-based training for those who know what occupation they want to pursue.
Will there be any support for transport costs
Our Learner Services Team are available to discuss help with funding to support industry placements which can be used to help with your travel costs.
