This publication provides a summary of the outcomes achieved by learners in receipt of results for a T Level in the academic year 2021/22. The first T Level courses started in September 2020 in the following subject areas:
- Design, Surveying and Planning for Construction
- Digital Production, Design and Development
- Education and Childcare
T Levels are new 2-year courses which are taken after GCSEs and are broadly equivalent in size to 3 A Levels. These courses have been developed in collaboration with employers and education providers so that the content meets the needs of industry and prepares students for entry into skilled employment, an apprenticeship or related technical study through further or higher education.
T Levels offer students practical and knowledge-based learning at a school or college and on-the-job experience.
Learners who have completed their T Level will receive a nationally recognised certificate which will show their overall grade and a breakdown of what they have achieved. This will include:
- an overall grade for the T Level, shown as pass, merit, distinction or distinction*
- a separate grade for the core component, using A* to E
- a separate grade for each occupational specialism, shown as pass, merit or distinction
- confirmation that they have completed an industry placement
The courses are available at selected colleges, schools and other providers across England. Information on which colleges, schools and other providers are offering T Levels is available on the T Levels website.
Please note that results are provisional, as appeals may still be underway which could result in changes to some individual grades and some partially achieving students are expected to complete their industry placement during summer 2022. Data are correct as of 8th August 2022. These statistics will be updated once finalised data is available towards the end of 2022.
A small number of learners whose gender was not provided are excluded from this analysis to protect confidentiality.
The coverage of these statistics is different to Ofqual data on T Level Technical Qualification (TQ) results, which only includes data for learners expected to complete their T Level programme in 2022, who have completed both the core component and occupational specialism. These statistics contain data on learners that have completed at least one T Level component, so includes some learners that have not completed both the core component and occupational specialism. Results may also differ slightly due to differences in data processing and rounding, and the timing of data collection.
