T-levels: What are they and who is going to study them?

A new vocational qualification, the T-level, is to be introduced in England in September 2020.

But what are they, who are they meant for, and why are they being introduced?

What are T-levels?
Aimed at 16 to 19-year-olds, they will focus on practical, rather than academic subjects.

Courses will be introduced from September 2020 and last two years. They will include a mixture of classroom learning and on-the-job experience, with a work placement of at least 315 hours – about nine weeks.

Vocational students can currently choose between thousands of different courses and qualifications. The government says T-levels will make things less confusing for students and employers.
