A Suffolk New College student is one of the first in the country to be completing the T Level.

Liam Earley, from Ipswich, is currently studying a T Level in Education and Childcare at Suffolk New College.

T Levels are equivalent to three A Levels and were developed in collaboration with employers to prepare students for work, while studying, with 80% of their time classroom learning, and 20% placement training.

The 17-year-old has an ambition of becoming a primary school teacher and liked the practical design of the T Level course.

He said: "I chose the course because I wanted to experience what it is like to have the balance of work and coursework mixed into one.

"I couldn't have made a better decision.

"I really enjoyed my placements and learning on the job in this way really suits me.
