T-levels are new, two-year technical study programmes that are designed for employers. The Law T-Level aims to combine academic study with legal work experience to equip students with the key skills needed to gain a legal apprenticeship, work within the legal sector or study law at a degree level at university.
You will complete a Level 3 Technical Qualification in Legal Services with a specialism in Crime, Criminal Justice and Social Welfare. The course will develop your knowledge of key legal principles and of policies and systems required when working in the legal workplace such as using case management software and client confidentiality. The course also gives you an understanding of the criminal procedure and possesses and of social welfare legislation and services such as social benefits and housing.
You will also be required to complete an industrial placement of at least 315 hours (45 days). This will provide you with an invaluable insight into the demands of working within the legal sector and professional skills such as legal letter writing, confidentiality and dealing with clients. You will also gain essential skills transferrable to any chosen route after college.
In the first year, you will study some core modules. This will relate to business, finance and accounting to give you an understanding of the sectors operate and how they are regulated. This will be in addition to your study of the legal system and key legal principles.
At least two 5s and three 4s at GCSE, including at least 5s in English Language, Maths and Science.
The T-Level will take up your full study programme; no further courses will be studied alongside.
