What are T Levels?
Designed by key employers, T Levels are a new two-year programme choice that follows GCSEs and prepares learners for work, further training or study.
T Levels will become one of the main choices for learners after GCSE alongside apprenticeships and A-levels.
The T Level programme includes the following compulsory elements:
- a Technical Qualification (TQ), which includes: core theory, concepts and skills for an industry area
- an industry placement with an employer
- a minimum standard in maths and English if learners have not already achieved them at the start of their T Levels.
New Industry Placement Cards for T Level Construction learners
To support learners on their T Level journey, which includes 315 hours of meaningful industry placement, Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) has introduced new Industry Placement Cards.
The new Industry Placement Cards available from September 2021 are for learners aged 16 or above registered onto a course requiring extended periods of work placement (minimum of 30 days, including T Levels), ultimately leading to a job in construction and the built environment.
For further information, including the Industry Placement card requirements, please visit the CSCS website.
We believe that these Industry Placement cards allow providers and employers to work together to support T Level learners on their journey.
We have worked with over 40 employers and industry in the design and development of the T Level Technical Qualification specifications and assessments for the On-site Construction and Building Services Engineering, to ensure the qualifications are fit for purpose and meet the needs of the industry.
These are organisations who have supported the Technical Qualifications. Visit our Employer T Level dedicated webpage for more information.
