9th February marks T Level Thursday during National Apprenticeship Week 2023.
TCG was one of the first providers to offer these brand new qualifications to students in Greater Manchester, and we now have T Level programmes running across Trafford, Stockport and Cheadle College.
T Levels are qualifications for 16- to 19-year-olds, taken after GCSEs. They are broadly equivalent in size to 3 A levels and focus on technical and vocational skills. They can help students into skilled employment, higher study or apprenticeships.
They are now available to study in a wide range of subjects, with TCG offering courses in various subjects from Education and Childcare to Building Services and beyond.
These pioneering new qualifications have been designed in collaboration with leading employers to provide the skills that businesses across the region need. The subject areas on offer reflect some of the top business growth areas such as digital skills, engineering and manufacturing and health and social care.
T Levels are unique as they combine classroom study with industry placements so young people gain valuable work experience in their chosen sector. Many local businesses are embracing T Levels as a great way to bring in new ideas and the latest skills, and a new way to find, nurture and secure young talent.
The Get the Jump content hub on the National Careers Service website has, in one place, all the education and training choices available to young people who are taking their next step, including further information on T Levels. Whether you know what you want to do yet or not, knowing your education, training and work choices is a great place to start. Search Get the Jump to find out more.
