We are excited to introduce 5 new T Levels into our wide variety of qualifications on offer at the college. T Levels are a great new qualification if you have completed your GCSEs and which can take you into your chosen profession, either directly or via university.

Sparsholt College Group has announced a multi-million-pound investment across both Sparsholt and Andover campuses in readiness for the delivery of new T Level qualifications. T Level qualifications will be delivered at both campuses thanks to investment from the Department for Education (DfE). Read more here.

T Levels are two-year courses which have been developed in collaboration with employers and providers to meet the needs of their industry and to prepare students for work. When taking a T Level qualification you will have the opportunity to see what a career is like in your chosen industry and gain experience that will look good on your CV or UCAS application and put you ahead of your peers.

When you complete your T Level you will gain a nationally-recognised certificate which shows your overall grade. You will also receive an overview of the work you have completed during your T Level as evidence to help with future employment.

T Levels also also carry UCAS points, meaning that if you finish your qualification with a grade Distinction*, it is worth the same as 3 A levels at A*.
