Ursuline Sixth Form, Wimbledon -Taking T-levels to a whole new generation of pupils

Ursuline High School, Wimbledon is excited to announce that there are places available on their Digital and Lab Science T-level courses.

In September 2020, the sixth form was proud to be chosen as one of only fifty schools in the country selected to be a provider for this fantastic new alternative to A-levels.

T-levels are a new type of post-16, 2-year qualification, with one T-level being equivalent to 3 A-levels, that are based on the same standards as apprenticeships and have been designed in collaboration with leading industry employers.

This ensures that the course content stays relevant to the current climate of the industry. T-level students will be fully equipped with the knowledge, skills and experience needed to pursue and thrive in highly skilled employment, apprenticeships, or higher education.

T- levels have the same UCAS points as three A -levels – perfect for students looking to study at university!

Most options for young adults in higher education lack any form of work experience, an invaluable tool for students in today’s working world.
