T Levels

You may have already heard about the government’s proposal to change the current vocational education system and introduce new T Level qualifications. The Isle of Wight College will be offering this fantastic modern alternative to technical A-Levels from September 2022.

You can apply now for next year, visit us on our Open Day (Saturday 6th November) or ask your school if our T Levels Roadshow is visiting!

The Isle of Wight College are proud to be the first to run these on the Isle of Wight and will continue to be an exclusive provider until 2024.

WHAT ARE T LEVELS?

T Levels will become one of the three main options for school leavers, with the view to replace A Levels in coming years.

T Levels are being introduced on the Isle of Wight exclusively at the Isle of Wight College from September 2022, and are designed to replace many of the vocational qualifications currently offered at level 3.

T LEVELS WILL OFFER STUDENTS:

  • Specific practical skills and knowledge in a chosen industry or occupation
  • 315 hours work placement at a relevant employer
  • Core English, Maths and digital skills
  • Within the programmes, students can choose the occupational specialisms they wish to focus on either from the onset or during their course.  After completing a T Level programme, students will have transferrable skills to use in the workplace; they may also continue their education at university or through an apprenticeship with an employer.
  • Enrichment, including free use of the college gym, Duke of Edinburgh participation and the opportunity for International Travel.

HOW HAVE THE NEW QUALIFICATIONS BEEN DEVELOPED?

The qualifications have been co-designed by the Department for Education, Institute for Apprenticeships, Education providers and employers.

The structure of these new qualifications will be different from the current system. The number of hours a student will study increases significantly over the two years, as they are required to complete at least 315 hours with an employer as part of their industry placement making up 20% of the course, with the other 80% being their teaching and study hours.

The timing of the placement may differ depending on the qualification; they may be completed as a block, series of block or as a day release where the student will spend one or two days a week with the employer for the academic year.

WHICH AREAS OF STUDY ARE BEING OFFERED BY THE ISLE OF WIGHT COLLEGE?
