Ready to get involved? The Next Level Qualification:  T Levels

T Levels will prepare students for entry into skilled employment, an apprenticeship or related technical study through further or higher education. The courses are designed to offer knowledge-based learning at our brand new college, LSBTC and on-the job experience through an industry placement of 45 days (315 hours). T Level students will spend 80% of the course in their learning environment, gaining the skills that employers need. The other 20% in a meaningful industry placement, where they put these skills into action.

Studying a T Level gives you a technical alternative to A Levels and will help you to get a skilled job. T Levels will provide a mixture of:

  • Knowledge based learning and practical skills specific to chosen industry or occupation
  • An industry placement of at least 45 days (315 hours) in chosen industry or occupation
  • Relevant digital skills as well as  English and maths
  • Common workplace skills

T Level Transition Programme 

Think you might like to do a T Level, but need more time to get ready? The T Level Transition Programme will help you develop your skills and prepare you for the next level. It’s a one-year post-GCSE course designed to get you T Level ready. It will give you relevant knowledge, practical and study skills, work experience and support tailored to you and your chosen T Level subject area.

You can expect to:

  • Gain technical knowledge and practical skills relevant to your chosen T Level subject area
  • Get ready for your T Level with industry work experience and preparation
  • Develop industry-relevant English and maths skills, and digital skills
  • Benefit from focused individual support and personal development
  • Plan the right next step for you – and get the skills to succeed when you get there

What’s different about the T Level Transition Programme?

The T Level Transition Programme is purposely designed to give you the best chance of progressing onto your chosen T Level – and successfully completing it. It’s been developed with leading employers, schools and colleges who have provided their unique understanding of the knowledge, skills and behaviours that you will need for your next step, and that industry employers look for in future employees.

What subjects can I study?

There is a T Level Transition Programme to prepare you for each T Level subject area. You’ll learn about the different T Levels within this subject area and their career opportunities, so that you can decide on the right T Level for you.

This is London South Bank Technical College

Our innovative courses are designed in partnership with businesses across London.

You’ll work on live project briefs, get equipment demonstrations, and have the opportunity to attend events and go on work experience. The result? You’ll leave us with the skills and know-how to give employers exactly what they need.

The majority of our courses are already accredited with professional institutes, giving students a clear route into their chosen career. Now, every course will have a work placement with a particular focus on supporting young people into exciting apprenticeships.

Lambeth College offers no limitations and I'm confident London South Bank Technical College will be the same! The college pretty much took it out of my hands, arranged everything and just told me when and where to be.
