The T Level is a ground-breaking new two-year Level 3 study programme that will offer students a mixture of classroom-based learning and ‘on-the-job’ experience.
A Vocational alternative to A Levels and Apprenticeships, the T Level has been launched as part of the Government’s review of Vocational education, under the Skills Plan. They have been collaboratively developed by the Department for Education (DfE), the Institute for Apprenticeships (IfA), education providers and employers.
Nelson and Colne College is in the privileged position to be one of only few colleges to offer the T Level, which is going to be the new gold standard qualification in technical education, and be the pinnacle for those who
are more practical. The T Level includes a core of knowledge and skills needed to work in the sector, a technical qualification, a substantial work placement of at least 315 hours over two years, as well as English, Mathematics and digital content.
