T Levels are new courses coming in September 2020, which will follow GCSEs and will be equivalent to 3 A Levels. These 2-year courses have been developed in collaboration with employers and businesses so that the content meets the needs of industry and prepares students for work.

T Levels will offer students a mixture of classroom learning and ‘on-the-job’ experience during an industry placement of around 3 months. They will provide the knowledge and experience needed to open the door into skilled employment, further study or a higher apprenticeship.

It's similar to apprenticeships but articles claim that there will be a greater emphasis on developing skills in the classroom. There will be courses on digital and construction industries in 2020 however the number of courses (engineering, finance, health and science) will increase by 2023.

What do you think? Will this discourage more students from taking up apprenticeships or A levels? Will it be safe for young people? Are the number of courses provided so far limited? Share your thoughts.

Not for those taking it this year, the courses are set to start in 2020.

It won't have any impact on your current GCSE studies - it's an alternative option for post-16 education, so AFTER your GCSEs.
