New package of support for T-levels

On Sunday 19 May 2019, the department announced a new package of support to encourage more employers offer industry placements in readiness for the T Level rollout in September 2020.

The package includes:

  • guidance to support employers and providers to offer industry placements, allowing industry placements to be undertaken with up to 2 employers
  • recording placements in hours (at least 315) rather than days
  • a pilot scheme to understand more about employer support
  • ‘how to’ guides and workshops

For more information about the announcement, please see the T Level industry placements guidance.

We have also published 2 industry placement short films: film 1 and film 2

If you want to find out more about industry placements please contact 08000 150 600 or tlevel.placement@education.gov.uk.
