T Levels The Next Level Qualification

In our Industry Excellence Academy we offer T Levels, a new two-year technical programme that will provide you with a high-quality technical alternative to A Levels, combining classroom learning with an extended industry placement, lasting at least 315 hours (approx. 45 days).

We also offer one-year Level 2 Transition Programmes which allow you to progress onto a Level 3 T Level if you don't meet the entry requirements for a T Level.

We strongly believe that if we are going to help you to achieve a job in your dream career and be ‘work ready’, it makes sense to work with employers from day one, to ensure our courses are helping you to develop the technical and professional skills you’ll actually need when you enter the world of work. 

That’s why we've developed relationships and partnerships with a multitude of employers and businesses across a diverse range of industry sectors. Our partnerships enable us to provide you with skills and qualifications that matter to employers and ensure you're 100% work-ready.
