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.
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.
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 Level UCAS Equivalent Points:
|UCAS Tariff points||T Level overall grade||A Level|
|168||Distinction* (A* on the core and distinction in the occupational specialism)||AAA*|
|96||Pass (C or above on the core)||CCC|
|72||Pass (D or E on the core)||DDD|
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.
Please note – we are currently updating course sheets. if you can’t find your T Level of choice, please contact email@example.com
Come to our Open Day on Saturday the 6th of November between 10am and 2pm to find out more about all of our new T Levels!
