Skills focussed

T-levels cover the key knowledge and skills areas of the most in-demand and growing sectors in the country – those where more skilled people are needed.

20+ course options

A diverse range of 16 courses from Accounting to Healthcare Science are available now, with even more options from September 2023.

2 year study programme

Just like A-levels, T-levels take two years to complete and one T-level is worth the same number of UCAS points as three A-levels.


Course content has been created in close collaboration with national and local employers, to guarantee relevance to real working life and improve young people’s future employability.

Watch them grow

See your child build the skills, knowledge, and attitude they need to reach their full potential, through classroom studies and their 45-day industry placement.

Real world experience

Having the opportunity to apply knowledge in the real world of work can motivate young people’s study and their ambitions.

Next level, next step

After a T-level your child could step into employment, an apprenticeship, a higher technical course, or a degree.

Supporting parents

This website is produced by The Gatsby Charitable Foundation, an organisation that’s helping parents, carers and guardians have more informed and confident conversations with their children about the training, education and career pathways available today.

Gatsby created the Benchmarks for Good Career Guidance, which were adopted by the government for secondary schools and colleges in England.

Now Gatsby is working to strengthen the support given to parents, carers, and guardians, with resources and tools, and guidance on where to find additional information.

T-levels are one of the pathway options available to young people after completing their GCSEs. You can read about the other pathway options on our Talking Futures website.

Working with employers

As a result of Gatsby’s work, 3.3 million young people in schools and colleges now have regular opportunities to meet, talk with or hear from employers – 70% more than two years ago.

Our founder and team

Gatsby was established by philanthropist and former science minister Lord Sainsbury and has a dedicated team focused on improving education.

Working together

In collaboration with schools and colleges, the government and other education bodies, Gatsby is helping parents to help their children find the right pathway for them.
