There is a new qualification to know about – T Levels

T Levels are a brand new qualification designed with employers to give young people a head start towards the future they want. They follow GCSEs and are equivalent to 3 A Levels. The first T Levels launch in selected schools and colleges across England in September 2020 with more following in later years.

T Levels combine classroom work with an extended industry placement to ensure young people gain the knowledge and skills they need to move into skilled work, an apprenticeship or further study.  What the video on Youtube below for more information
