Are you an employer who could provide a T Level Industry Placement relating to Design, Surveying and Planning for Construction, or Digital Production, Design and Development, or Education and Childcare? If so please read on!

In September 2020, the Department for Education launched the first three T Level qualifications, designed to equip young people with the technical skills on which to build their future careers. To achieve a T Level pass every student has to complete a substantial Industry Placement with a local employer as part of their course.


The Covid-19 pandemic has placed additional pressure on colleges and other training providers in sourcing enough Industry Placements for their students, and we at the (enter your organisation name here) alongside other professional and intermediary bodies have offered our help.


You will find some background about T Levels below, along with links to further information, to help you decide if your organisation can get involved by offering students a good quality Industry Placement. As well as providing a young person with their first step into the world of work, it could be your first step to engaging with fresh new talent.


What are T Levels?


T Levels are new Level 3 courses for 16 to19 year olds and are equivalent to three A-levels. These are full-time two-year courses, developed in collaboration with employers, and are based on the same standards as apprenticeships. They offer a mixture of classroom learning and ‘on-the-job’ experience through an industry placement of at least 315 hours (approximately 45 days). This is where you can help.
