Exeter College is one of the first providers in the country to be offering the Government’s new T Level qualifications; a technical-based qualification that is set to revolutionise technical education in the UK.

As a government-selected ‘early adopter’ of the new qualifications, Exeter College is the only place in Devon you can study T Levels for September 2020 entry, with courses initially available in ConstructionDigital and Education and Childcare.

How do I study T Levels?

The new qualification follows on from GCSE studies and will be the equivalent of three A Levels. T Levels combine classroom theory, practical learning and a three month industry placement to ensure students have the skills to thrive in the world of work. A two year course, T Levels aim to provide the knowledge and experience needed to open the door to highly skilled employment, higher level study or a Higher Apprenticeship.

As well as offering a clear line of sight to industry, T Levels are recognised by UCAS to support applications to study at university, with a starred distinction in a T Level being worth the equivalent of three A*s at A Level.

What are T Levels like?

T Levels are different to the traditional route of A Levels as they focus on the skill acquisition required to move directly in to industry. Courses consist of around 80% of time spent in the classroom with the remaining 20% spent being on a valuable work placement in a relevant workplace. This differs from an Apprenticeship where around 80% of time is spent with an employer and 20% in the classroom and is more suited to those who feel read to enter the workforce at age 16 while learning at the same time.

Which T Levels are available?

With T Levels available in ConstructionDigital and Education and Childcare in September 2020, further T Levels will be rolled out in 2021 with courses available across a range of industries.
