T Levels

From 2021 we will be delivering T Levels in both Digital and Health & Science. T Levels are a brand new qualification that allow students to study both inside and outside the classroom – think of it as a mixture between an Apprenticeship and a BTEC! Learn more about T Levels here.

Students will spend 80% of their time in a classroom and 20% on a work placement. A T Level qualification is equivalent to 3 A Levels. This combined learning offer will place you in the best position for progression onto Higher Education and your future career.
