In September 2020, the phased introduction of T Levels began for students in England on the first wave of subject areas in Construction, Digital, and Education & Childcare, offering a unique and prestigious technical alternative to A Levels. A further seven T Levels will be introduced in 2021, growing to twenty four T Levels, covering eleven technical routes by 2023.
Despite challenges posed by the Covid-19 pandemic, the Government signalled its clear intention and confidence in the wider rollout of T Levels in the Skills for Jobs White Paper, which was published in January and outlined its aim for it to become the mainstream technical offer that can meet the skills needs of the future. To support its commitment, the Government announced an additional £135m in capital funding for providers delivering T Levels from 2022, in addition to the current £133m in funding for 2020 and 2021 providers. Once the T Level framework is fully operational, it will be backed by an investment of £500m per year. Beyond the policy commitments and funding, in order to underpin the success of T Levels, it is vital to promote awareness amongst students, teachers, parents and employers to ensure there is enough take-up of the courses.
This Policy Foresight live conference offers a timely opportunity for key partners from schools, FE providers, local authorities, awarding bodies, training providers and employers to examine the lessons learned from the first year of T Levels and how to tackle the latest implementation challenges ahead of its wider rollout. The webinar provides a key platform to examine the impact of recent post-16 education reforms and how T Levels will play a central role in transforming technical education and vocational skills for the future. Furthermore, participants will have an invaluable chance to learn from best practice and explore how they can work in partnership to ensure that T Levels deliver high quality technical education that meets the skills needs of the future.
