Nurture new talent, discover new ideas and give your business a boost with a T Level placement

What is a T Level?

T Levels are new, 2-year Level 3 qualifications for 16- to 19-year-olds.

Designed in conjunction with employers, each T Level is equivalent to 3 A Levels and helps young people develop the knowledge, attitude and practical skills to progress into skilled employment, an apprenticeship or further study.

What sectors are T Levels available in?

At Stoke on Trent College we will be offering the following T Level subjects from September 2024:

  • Business Management and Administration
  • Education and Childcare
  • Health – Care of Children and Young People
  • Health – Adult Nursing
  • Health – Midwifery
  • Design, Surveying & Planning for Construction
  • Building Services for Construction – Plumbing and Heating Engineering
  • Onsite Construction – Bricklaying
  • Onsite Construction – Carpentry and Joinery
  • Building Services for Construction – Electrotechnical Engineering
  • Design and Development for Engineering and Manufacturing
  • Media Broadcast and Production
  • Digital – Software Coding and Development

Why is the industry placement important?

Every T Level student must complete an industry placement that lasts a minimum of 315 hours (approximately 45 days). This is to provide young people the invaluable opportunity to put their learning, knowledge and skills into practice in a real workplace environment. Industry placements also give employers a unique opportunity to develop new talent and help young people become work ready. 

This can be split over a number of weeks/months to suit the needs of your business.
