star this property answer text <p>We have developed guidance for T level panels, including an employability skills framework, to ensure a consistent approach to integrating employability skills in T levels. As part of the government response to the Taylor review, we have committed to publish the guidance in due course. Through this, a framework will be made openly available for other organisations (such as employers and higher education providers, where successful frameworks are already in use) to use if they wish.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>T levels are designed primarily to prepare students for skilled employment. T levels will also be open to all students that have the prerequisite knowledge and skills to go to university to do relevant technical degrees. To reflect their size and complexity, T levels will receive UCAS tariff points in line with the points awarded for three A levels. We are working with UCAS to agree the specific points for each T level grade and plan to confirm the allocation of points to grades in 2019.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>​T levels will be larger and more demanding than current equivalent programmes, and the government has announced the investment of an additional £500 million a year to support providers to deliver T levels once they are fully rolled out.</p><p>​The funding rates for T level programmes will be higher than for existing study programmes, and are subject to a public consultation which was published on 27 November 2018 and will close on 19 February 2019 – available at: <a href="https://consult.education.gov.uk/fe-funding/t-level-funding-methodology/" target="_blank">https://consult.education.gov.uk/fe-funding/t-level-funding-methodology/</a>. The consultation document proposes that T level funding rates will vary depending on the size of the T level, with the smallest attracting a rate of £4,170 per year and the largest £5,835. As set out in the T levels funding consultation document, additional funding would also be provided on top of these rates through the funding formula.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>With longer hours and meaningful industry placements, T levels will provide employers with the future skilled workforce they need to thrive. We have placed employers at the heart of T level development and implementation. We have extended the remit of the National Apprenticeship Service (NAS) to promote awareness of T levels and industry placements with a wide range of employers – the NAS has worked with and gained the interest of nearly 10,000 employers in 2018/19. The NAS also work with business representative networks and recently held a T levels Twitter panel with myself and the Federation of Small Businesses.</p><p>In addition, T level panel members, responsible for developing T level content, have become strong advocates for T levels. Many of these members are now part of the T level Ambassadors Network - a network of business advocates endorsing T levels on a regional and national basis.</p><p> </p> more like this
