T-levels are new, government-backed, career focused qualifications – an alternative to A levels, apprenticeships and other 16 to 19 courses. Students spend 80% of their time at College and 20% of their time developing the skills needed for the workplace, on a 45-day industry placement.
Myerscough College's Preston Centre will be offering T-Levels in the subjects listed below from September 2023, plus a dedicated one-year T-Level Transition Programme.
The T-Level courses will run alongside the established Level 3 Diploma programmes in each of the subjects indicated. Students should initially apply for the current Level 3 Diploma options (via the website online application process) and then the Admissions Team and departments will contact you to discuss which route best meets your career aspirations.
