T Levels

What Are T Levels?

T Levels are a new qualification for students aged 16 to 19 in England who’ve finished GCSEs. 

They're an alternative to A levels and apprenticeships, giving young people the technical and practical skills needed to be an asset in the workplace.  

At the heart of each course, every T Level student completes an industry placement that lasts a minimum of 315 hours (approximately 45 days). Industry placements give you a unique opportunity to help develop new talent in your industry, and get young people work-ready. 

We believe T Levels could support employers and our professions by offering early access to a talent pipeline for entry-level positions, as well as helping with recruitment, improved innovation and increased organisational productivity. 

To test this theory, the CII are committed to piloting the T Level qualifications in Insurance and Personal Finance. By supporting employers and colleagues in a controlled test of the qualification, we can review and develop the most effective way to manage the T Level in the future, making the most of this opportunity to create an early pipeline of talent. 


Could you help shape the future of Insurance & Personal Finance?
