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 7 T Levels were introduced this year, expanding to 24 T Levels covering 11 technical routes by 2023, prior to the national rollout in 2024.
The Government has signalled its clear intention and confidence in the wider rollout of T Levels in the current Skills and Post-16 Education Bill and its aim for T Levels to become the mainstream technical offer that can meet the skills needs of the future, drive levelling up and improve social mobility for young people across the country. In order to deliver this ‘skills revolution’, the Government announced in the autumn budget a £3.8bn investment in further education and skills across this Parliament, £1.6bn of which will be used for T Levels delivery and £830m for the ongoing funding of the building and facilities modernisation programme, T Levels Capital Fund (TLCF). 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, improve progression routes and deliver high quality industry placements for students.
This Policy Foresight online live conference offers a timely opportunity for key partners from schools, FE providers, local authorities, awarding bodies, training providers and employers to explore the lessons learned from the first two years of T Levels, discuss what has worked well and examine how to tackle the latest implementation challenges ahead of its wider rollout. The webinar provides a key platform to consider the impact of the Skills and Post-16 Education Bill and latest T Levels Action Plan and participants will have an invaluable chance to learn from best practice and explore how they can harness the power of collaboration in developing and strengthening local partnerships to ensure that T Levels deliver consistent, high quality technical education that meets the skills needs of the future.
