Apprenticeships & T-Levels

An Apprenticeship is a training programme which an individual undertakes with an employer where they can gain a qualification whilst working. Learning through doing the work in situ, combined with training linked to a local college, training provider or university. Apprentices are paid while they learn, and the level varies from GCSE to Degree, depending on the length of time and level of technical expertise that will be developed during the apprenticeship.

T Levels are an alternative to A levels, apprenticeships and other 16 to 19 courses. Equivalent to 3 A levels, the new T-Levels focus on vocational skills and can help students into skilled employment, higher study or apprenticeships.
