T-Levels at DBTH

T-Levels are two-year courses designed for students aged 16-19, typically pursued after completing GCSEs.

T-levels are equivalent to three A-Level courses. T-Levels have been collaboratively developed with employers and education institutions to ensure that the curriculum aligns with industry needs and prepares students for entry into skilled employment, apprenticeships, or related technical studies in further or higher education.   

What Does a T-Level Consist of?  

Each T-Level course consists of a combination of practical and knowledge-based learning at an educational provider, as well as on-the-job work experience through an industry placement spanning at least 315 hours, roughly equivalent to 45 days. The programme equates to 80% academic learning and 20% placement. 

What T-Level Work Placements Does DBTH Offer? 

Currently, the Trust provides industry placements exclusively to T-Level students studying a Health based provision. However, we are hoping to extend our provision to incorporate other T-Level courses. 

How Do I Apply T-Level for Work Placements at DBTH? 

All T-Levels industry placements are organised directly with Education Providers. Placements are not open for general application and any potential students must consult their relevant Placement Coordinator / Tutor at the Education Provider they are studying regarding placement opportunities.
