T Levels implementation is among the key foci for the Department for Education (DfE) which has resulted in a number of important announcements recently on the design, delivery, selected training providers, occupational maps and qualification content for the qualifications.
Recently, ‘The Challenge’ organisation on behalf of the DfE, has created The ‘Employer Information Guide,’ a set of resources for post-16 education providers and employers for T Level industry placements (formerly known as T Level work placements). Based on their experience and learning from the Industry Placement Pilot Scheme which is running throughout academic year 2017/18, the Guide provides employers with information about the components that make up the programme and how employers can get involved by offering industry placements to students.
You can access the Guide here.
Also, a £5million scheme calling on experts from across a range of technical sectors to work in further education has been launched by Skills Minister Anne Milton. The Taking Teaching Further programme will pay for up to 150 professionals from sectors such as engineering and computing to retrain as further education teachers. This expertise will be an important part of the roll out of T Level qualifications.
