T-levels are a relatively new type of vocational qualification. They are an alternative to A levels, apprenticeships and other 16-19 courses. T-levels are equivalent in size to 3 A levels and support students in progressing to employment, apprenticeships or university study.
T-level students spend 80% of the course in a learning environment such as a school or college, and 20% on an industry placement lasting around 45 days. These industry placements can provide valuable hands-on experience in a relevant workplace and can help create connections between industry employers and prospective employees.
Each T level includes a mathematical component which varies in content depending on the specialism of the T level, and which builds on learning from GCSE Maths at a grade 4+ or equivalent.
Alongside the main T-level qualification, many institutions offer an additional qualification to support the development of wider mathematical knowledge and skills, such as Core Maths or AS/A level Maths . Information about alternative university admissions offers can be found here.
