T Levels are new courses coming to EN in September 2021

These new qualifications will follow on from GCSEs and will be equivalent to 3 A Levels.The  2-year courses have been developed in collaboration with employers and businesses so that the content meets the needs of industry and prepares students for work.

T Levels will offer students a mixture of classroom learning and ‘on-the-job’ experience during an industry placement of at least 315 hours (approximately 45 days). They will provide the knowledge and experience needed to open the door into skilled employment, further study or a higher apprenticeship.

Join us to explore the brand new technical vocational qualification and be one of the first to benefit from a bespoke specialist programme, linked into key local sectors with high quality work placements and specialist equipment and resources on the College campus. Entry criteria will reflect the demands of this course, so we will be looking for good grades in English, maths and science.

We are the only provider East of Norwich where you can study T Levels in 2021, with new T Levels coming online in 2022 and 2023 as well.

You will undertake a bespoke suite of courses and subjects designed to prepare you for the challenges of a T Level qualification including:

By looking at your EN journey as a 3-year programme of study means that you have a clear sense of direction and purpose. It means that you can tailor your Route 3 programme towards the full T Level that you will undertake in Years 2 & 3.

After the transition year, from September 2022, you will be able to choose from T Levels in Digital Design and Development, Digital Business Services, Health, Healthcare Science and Science, Finance and Engineering. See  table below.
