The Future of Skills: T-Levels Explained

T-Levels are a relatively new qualification in England, having been introduced in September 2020. Designed to bridge the gap between classroom-based learning and practical work.

Each T-Level course offers students on-the-job experience, placing them in the workplace one day a week while the rest of the time is dedicated to industry-specific learning.

This ensures that students are gaining the necessary theoretical knowledge alongside practical skills required for the role, filling skill gaps and kickstarting professional careers.

As an employer, offering T-Level placements presents a unique opportunity to contribute towards developing the next generation of skilled professionals. Your business can use this format of learning help to nurture the next generation of your workforce. Businesses can benefit from financial incentives, to help offset the costs of this type of placement.

T-Levels are available across a wide range of industries, including Construction, Digital, Education & Early Years, Engineering & Manufacturing, Health & Science, and many more. Students on T-Levels are required to combine classroom learning with an industry placement.
