T Levels

T Level - Science

ABOUT THIS COURSE

The T Level in Science is a composite technical study programme, aimed at preparing young people for work, higher level apprenticeships or higher education (HE).

It comprises 4 key components:

  • an approved technical qualification (TQ)
  • an occupational specialism
  • a substantial industry placement with an external employer
  • employability, enrichment and pastoral (EEP) elements.
ENTRY REQUIREMENTS

You will need:

  • a minimum of 5 GCSEs at Grade 4 or above including English, Maths and Science.
    Applicants with Triple Science are expected to pass at least 2 subjects at grade 4.
ASSESSMENT METHOD

The technical qualification is split into 2 component parts:

Core component:

  • 2 written examinations (paper A and paper B)
  • employer-set project (ESP).

In order to achieve a grade for Core Component, you must have results for both sub-components (the core (written) examination and the employer-set project).

The combined results from these sub-components will be aggregated to form the overall core component grade (A* to E and U).

If you fail to reach the minimum standard across all sub-components, you will receive a U grade. No overall grade will be issued for the core component until both sub-components have been attempted.

Occupational specialism components:

  • Technical: Laboratory Sciences
  • a case study assessment, 2 practical assessments and a professional discussion.

You are also required to successfully achieve a distinction/merit/pass grade in one of the occupational specialism components. If you fail to reach the specified level of attainment, you will receive a U grade.

PROGRESSION OPPORTUNITIES

On successful completion of this qualification you could :

  • progress on to higher education - UCAS points available for university entry (for example, food technologist, laboratory technician, metrology technician)
  • start an apprenticeship (progression onto lower level apprenticeships may also be possible in some circumstances, if the content is sufficiently different).
  • seek employment: food technologist, laboratory technician, metrology technician.
STUDY METHODS

The course will be delivered through classroom teaching, exams and assessed work.

A substantial industry placement of 360 hours with an external employer will form an important part of the delivery including an employer project.

There will also be tutorial, enrichment and pastoral support elements.

FEES

If you will be aged 16 to 18 on 31 August in the year you begin your studies and have been resident in the UK/EU/EEA for the past 3 years, your course will be free.
