T Levels are new qualifications which have been designed alongside employers, enabling students to get a head start in their chosen industry or career. Equivalent to three A Levels, T Levels combine classroom theory, practical learning and a 45-day industry placement enabling students to gain experience in the workplace. Selby College currently offers T Level programmes in Health, Digital Support Services (IT), Education & Early Years and Maintenance, Installation & Repair for Engineering and Manufacturing.
