T Level students spend 80% of the course in the classroom, learning the skills that employers need. The other 20% is an industry placement, where students put these skills into action. A vocational alternative to A Levels and Apprenticeships, the T Level has been launched as part of the Government’s review of Vocational education, under the Skills Plan.
