In Brief

Start Date / Duration

This course begins in September 2024 and runs for two years.

Entry requirements

  • A minimum of five GCSEs including English and Maths at GCSE grade 4 or above.
  • Must be below the age of 18 at time of enrolment.

You will achieve

T Level (Technical qualification) in Legal Services.

Course overview

Our T Level in Legal Services is a two-year, technical study programme, designed with employers to give you the skills required in industry. 

T Levels are an alternative to A Levels and apprenticeships. They combine classroom theory, practical learning and a minimum 315 hours of industry placement with an employer to make sure you have real experience of the workplace.

You will develop the core knowledge and skills that are needed for entry to a range of occupations in Legal Services.

Levels combine technical knowledge, practical skills specific to accountancy and an industry placement, which equips you with the knowledge and skills employers are looking for, along with real experience of the workplace. You will spend 80% of your time in the classroom and 20% on a 45-day industry placement.

Your T Level will be worth UCAS points (a T Level Distinction* is worth the same as 3 A levels at A*) and will be recognised by universities and other education providers so you can choose to continue studying if you wish.

Students who achieve a T Level will get a nationally recognised certificate which employers will use as evidence in their recruitment.

T Levels will offer students a mixture of classroom or workshop-based learning and ‘on-the-job’ experience.
