WHAT IS A T LEVEL?
T Levels give you another way to supplement your workforce. Launched in September 2020, they offer 16 to 19-year-olds an alternative to A levels and the chance to acquire real-life vocational experience through industry placements.
As an employer, you’ll gain an enthusiastic employee you can train in specific areas to your industry. Not only will you have an ‘extra pair of hands’, you’ll also be shaping the future of the younger generation.
Benefits of a T Level
By offering a T Level placement to one of our students, your organisation will:
- Enhance productivity
- Increase brand awareness
- Train individuals in skills, aptitudes and behaviours for your industry needs
- Access the best new talent
- Invest in the younger generation, your future workforce
Hosting a placement
We’ve currently secured placements with more than 200 employers across the Leeds City Region. Each placement is designed to last a minimum of 315 working hours to ensure students receive the experience and training they need. To register your business or interest in hosting a placement, contact Emma Schofield to discuss this further.

Next steps after the placement
Don’t forget to tell us how it went. We encourage all employers to provide student feedback after their placement has ended and we will initiate these conversations with both you and your student. You can even supply your placement student with a reference to enhance their employment prospects.
Can I hire my T Level trainee?
Absolutely! Many of our students have been offered paid work as a result of their placement. A student can become a permanent part of your workforce once they have gained their T level qualification.
