T Levels at City College Norwich
T Levels are new two-year technical courses. City College Norwich has been one of the first in the country to offer these new courses and now we have new subjects available from September 2022.
Developed with employers, T Levels are designed to provide the skills and knowledge required to get into a technical career. They combine classroom study with on-the-job training as part of a substantial industry placement. Industry placements with an employer will last at least 315 hours.
T Levels are two-year courses that follow on from GCSEs. They are an alternative study option to Levels and apprenticeships. They provide progression routes into skilled and technical employment, or onto higher/degree apprenticeships and university.
Academic and technical
Approximately 70- to 80% of your study will be academic and technical study at college and 20 to 30% will be practical experience gained with an employer as part of an industry placement.
Core and specialist
Courses will include core and specialist content. This will combine theory and understanding with hands-on skills required for an occupational specialism.
Students will gain any required occupational specialisms, such as a licence to practice qualification, as part of the course.
