It looks like a T Level is an alternative to A levels or BTEC when you are at college for 2 years. Apprenticeship can be done after 16 but most tend to opt to do it after leaving college

If you can find a T level in childcare or school setting go for it but it looks like it's a fairly new concept introduced by the government.

Useful websites:

T Levels are;
T Levels- Equivalent to THREE A Levels, these two-year programmes will give you the professional and technical skills for an exciting career and successful future - you will gain the knowledge, experience and business links to open the door into skilled employment, degree education and higher Apprenticeships!

Get into teaching website (I know you want to do teaching assistant) but it might be a good idea to contact them

Difference
T levels and apprenticeships are similar, they will be based upon the same standards which are designed by employers. However, an apprentice spends most of their time in the workplace, learning on-the-job, whereas a T level student will spend most of their time in the classroom.
