T-Level Thursday

We were delighted to welcome The Manchester College to Saint Paul’s Catholic High School on T-Level Thursday to explain how T-Levels are a fantastic mix of learning and on-the-job training.

What are T Levels?
T Levels are high-quality technical alternatives to A Levels, combining classroom theory, practical learning and an industry placement – of at least 315 hours, or approximately 45 days – where students will build the knowledge and skills they need in a workplace environment.

What are T Levels equivalent to?
One T Level is equivalent to three A Levels.

The Manchester College spoke to our pupils and provided information about T-Levels, how they work and the courses offered. They answered pupils’ questions and explained how T-Levels give students the opportunity to gain on-the-job experience and ensure that they are equipped with skills for life.

Ms Hitchen, Careers Lead at Saint Paul’s, commented: “T-Levels focus on vocational skills and aim to help students get into skilled employment, higher level study or Apprenticeships. We really appreciated The Manchester College coming into school and talking to out pupils about the T-Level courses and how they could help develop the pupils’ futures.”
