T Levels

City & Guilds has been awarded a number of T Level Technical Qualifications (TQs) contracts by the Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education.

  • Onsite Construction and Building Services Engineering TQs are now available for teaching.
  • Engineering and Manufacturing, and Management and Administration TQs are available from September 2022.

We are utilising the expertise of the specialist engineering awarding organisation, Excellence Achievement and Learning (EAL), to develop the Engineering and Manufacturing T Level TQs. This follows on from last year's successful partnership to start delivering the Technical Qualification in Building Services Engineering.

T Levels are a new two-year programme choice that follows GCSEs. They have been developed in collaboration with employers and businesses to ensure the content prepares learners for the world of work and meets industry needs.

T Levels are available in England only and will become one of the main choices for learners after GCSE alongside apprenticeships and A-levels.

The T Level programme includes the following compulsory elements:

  • a TQ which includes: core theory, concepts and skills for an industry area
  • an industry placement with an employer
  • a minimum standard in maths and English if learners have not already achieved them at the start of their T Levels.
