Welcome to the next level of learning. T Levels are a cutting-edge qualification designed in collaboration with leading businesses. Employers can expect a talent pipeline directly to learners, ready to tackle skills shortages and equipped with the knowledge needed to succeed in their industry.
An alternative to other post-16 courses, T Levels merge classroom learning and industry placement. Industry placements of around 45 days are an integral part of T Levels and Walsall College are working closely with employers to ensure placements:
- Offer a talent pipeline to employers by nurturing students in line with employer needs
- Increase business capacity
- Provide an extra resource for projects
- Provide a more diverse workforce, bringing imaginative ideas and different skills to your teams
We are welcoming enquiries from employers who are looking to provide placements in the following T Levels:
