SGS College is delighted to announce the Department of Education has chosen South Gloucestershire and Stroud College (SGS) as part of a select number of institutions to deliver the new ground-breaking T Level qualification from 2022.
T levels are a new Advanced Level qualification introduced by the Government as part of the Post 16 Education reform. The prestigious two-year programme has been developed alongside Government, business and education to create a study programme that meets the needs of employers and business leaders, whilst preparing students with essential skills for their future careers and to help recover our economy after the Covid-19 pandemic.
T Levels are high-quality technical alternatives to A Levels, combining classroom theory, practical learning and a 45-day work placement. This focus on gaining experience in the workplace is central to the aim of T Levels, so that learners have a clear understanding of the expectations of industry and are able to apply learning from the workplace in the technical studies that they undertake in college.
SGS College will be delivering T Levels in Digital, Health and Education & Childcare for the academic year 2022.
Assistant Principal Stuart Evans states:
"It is an exciting time in post-16 education and to be in a position to offer such an attractive alternative to the usual routes taken by learners after school is testament to the hard work of our delivery staff. We are excited to play an integral role in transforming technical education in the UK. This news is great for our future students, our staff and for employers in our region who will ultimately benefit.”
T Levels represent the biggest shake up to technical education in a generation. They will provide young people with the chance to get a great job, pursue further study or complete a high-quality apprenticeship.
