What is a T Level?

T Levels give you another way to supplement your workforce. Launched in September 2020, they offer 16 to 19-year-olds an alternative to A levels and the chance to acquire real-life vocational experience through industry placements. As an employer, you’ll gain an enthusiastic employee you can train in specific areas of your industry. Not only will you have an ‘extra pair of hands’, you’ll also be shaping the future of the younger generation.

Next steps after the placement

Don’t forget to tell us how it went. We encourage all employers to provide student feedback after their placement has ended and we will initiate these conversations with both you and your student. You can even supply your placement student with a reference to enhance their employment prospects.

Can I hire my T Level trainee?

Absolutely! Many of our students have been offered paid work as a result of their placement. A student can become a permanent part of your workforce once they have gained their T level qualification.
