    T Levels – Coming soon…

    T Levels are a new type of course starting in September 2020. 

    These qualifications will be taken after GCSEs and will be equivalent to 3 A Levels.

    These 2-year courses have been developed in collaboration with employers and businesses so that the content meets the needs of industry and prepares students for work.

    T Levels will offer students a mixture of classroom learning and ‘on-the-job’ experience during an industry placement of around 3 months. They will provide the knowledge and experience needed to open the door into skilled employment, further study or a higher apprenticeship.

    CCSW is involved in a pilot for extended industry placements in preparation for T Levels.
