T Levels explained

T Levels are an exciting new qualification option for school leavers.

Nescot is proud to be offering T Level qualifications in two of our specialist areas - Health Science and Digital - from September 2023. Applications for these programmes will open in October 2022. Find out all you need to know about T Levels here.

What are T Levels?

T Levels are new two--year courses for school leavers, at Level 3 (A Level equivalent). T levels combine classroom learning and hands on experience with about 45 days of placement work, with a focus on practical and technical skill development to prepare students for a career in their chosen sector.

What T Levels will Nescot be offering?

Nescot will be running T Levels in the Health Science and Digital routes. These will start in September 2023. Each route will have different options and full course details will be published in October.

More information on T Level courses at Nescot

T Level courses will include:

  • A technical qualification with core theory, concepts and skills
  • Specialist skills and knowledge for a career in the relevant industry / sector.
  • A substantial work placement in the industry with an employer

Entry qualifications will be similar to A Levels or other Level 3 qualifications, such as those offered at Nescot. For T Levels, English and Maths at GCSE Grade 4 or above are required. You will need a Grade 4 or above in three other subjects, relevant to your course choice. Applicants will have an interview at which they will be expected to show a strong interest and commitment to study in their sector of choice. 

At the end of the two-year course, students will receive an overall grade (Pass, Merit, Distinction, Distinction*). The T Level also carries a grade for the core component and occupational specialism. The T Level has the potential for you to earn UCAS points equivalent to taking three A Levels.

After completing a T Level your options will include:

  • Skilled employment as you will have gained in depth skill from the technical work in the T level.
  • Higher or degree-level apprenticeships
  • Higher level technical study including university
