The next level qualification
at Calderdale College
T Levels are courses for 16 to 18 year olds that can be taken as an alternative to doing A Levels or an Apprenticeship. They are for people who aspire to gain careers across a range of technical and vocational industry pathways.

What to T Levels Involve?

Studying a T Level will provide students with:

  • Technical knowledge and practical skills specific to the student’s chosen industry or occupation.
  • An industry placement of at least 45 days in their chosen industry or occupation.
  • Relevant Maths, English and digital skills.
  • Common workplace skills.

T Levels will offer students a mixture of classroom or workshop-based learning and ‘on-the-job’ experience.

Watch this short Government video to hear why students find completing industry placements so beneficial.

What T Levels can I do?

Calderdale College will be offering T Levels from September 2021.

We are offering T Levels in two subject areas:


  • Digital Production, Design & Development
  • Digital Support & Services


  • Health
  • Health Care Science

What are the benefits of T Levels?

Developed in collaboration with employers, T Levels aim to help students get the high-quality technical skills to open the door to highly skilled employment, a higher apprenticeship or university.

T Levels will combine classroom theory, practical learning and a 45 to 60 day industry placement with an employer to ensure they have real and meaningful experience of the workplace.

Students will spend 80% of their time in college and 20% on a placement.

What else do I need to know?

Applications for T Levels at Calderdale College will open in October 2020.
