What is a T-level?
T-levels are built around a core set of underpinning knowledge, concepts and skills, tailored for each chosen industry and occupation. They also have specialist content covering occupational or industry specific skills, and then an industry placement with an employer which will last for a minimum of 45 working days. T-levels give you quality theory and valuable experience, all wrapped up in a new gold standard of education.
There are three qualifications in the first release of T-levels:
“I was on the placement between November and March last year, doing around twenty hours a week. The hours were flexible but I wanted to spend a lot of my spare time there. It was a great experience and I really made the most of it. What was great was that the placement associated with my hobbies but also helped me decide what I want to study at university in the future.”
Alden Palmer (2nd Year Student) – Placement at Neon Play.
“We’re really looking forward to working with Cirencester College providing work experience for the new T-levels. We like being able to give students a chance to experience the real world because they learn different skills in an office that support the work they do in the classroom. It’s also really great for them to have industry experience in a sector in which they’d like to progress their careers and improve their CVs. It was rewarding having a student with us in the pilot year and we’re pleased that we have supported him in his future ambitions.”
Oli Christie – CEO at Neon Play.
