T Levels

Welcome to the WMSF T Level Information Page

We are very excited to be launching brand-new T Levels at the sixth form in Level 3 Healthcare Science and Business Management and Administration.


T Levels are industry-focused technical courses that combine classroom learning with real-world experience, ensuring you’re fully prepared for your chosen career path. They offer a unique blend of theoretical knowledge, practical skills, and valuable work placements, providing you with a competitive edge in today’s job market.

Equivalent to 3 A Levels, these 2-year qualifications are designed specifically with employers to ensure you learn relevant and up-to-date practices from the industry sector that interests you the most.

They give you the same UCAS points as other Level 3 study programmes and support you to progress into a skilled job, a higher apprenticeship or on to further study, including university.


T Levels offer you practical and knowledge-based learning as well as on-the-job training.

T Levels include the following compulsory elements:

  • core skills, theory, and concepts for the industry area
  • specialist occupational skills and knowledge of the career
  • an industry placement with an employer, 315 hours or approximately 45 days.

How T Level study compares to other Level 3 courses:

  • BTEC’s are being phased out by the Government from September 2024 therefore depending on the subject choice there may not be a BTEC available for students to study related to their chosen field.
  • T Levels are the new phase of Vocational Education in the UK
  • T Levels are just as demanding as A’ Levels academically, but the focus of the study is on acquisition of workplace skills and competencies, as well as theory and industry practice.
  • Universities are treating T Levels the same as any other entry point Level 3 qualification, as they realise that students who study T Levels may want to continue their higher education with degrees or degree apprenticeships. Therefore a top grade in a T Level is worth the same UCAS points as a top grade in A’ Levels or a BTEC. Students will not be disadvantaged if they chose to attend university after studying a T Level.
  • T Levels allow students to gain high quality, valuable work placements in their chosen industry, which will not only give them insight into what working in that industry is like but also an opportunity to make networking connections.
