Teeing up business for T Levels

New College Durham has already established itself as one of the best providers of T-Level qualifications in the region since they were launched in 2020.

Last summer, its T-Level students achieved an impressive 100 percent pass rate in all subjects.

T-levels offer 16 to 19-year-olds a skills-focused route into either employment, higher technical apprenticeships, or university.

They are a unique mixture of classroom learning and industry placement.

One T-level is the equivalent of three A-levels, meaning T-level students can go on to work, further training, or degree level study.

The two-year, industry focused courses were developed in collaboration with businesses to ensure they provide students with the skills employers want.

This gives students a valuable opportunity to put their learning into practice, develop their technical skills and become more employable.

Students spend a minimum of 45 days with an external employer in a role directly relevant to their course.

Current T-Level subjects include automotive, business, early years, science, engineering, digital, construction and healthcare.

Benefits for business of having an industry placement student include:

  • developing existing staff’s mentoring and management skills
  • improving the recruitment pipeline for your business
  • giving opportunities to young people from a wide range of backgrounds, leading to a more diverse workforce
  • bringing in new and imaginative ideas
  •  building partnerships with local training providers
