For the 2023-2024 academic year, the Government has increased funding rates for T Levels by 10%, to continue the national rollout of T Levels. This comes at an exciting time for providers as the range of subject areas available to students continues to grow year on year. Despite the potential for T Levels to further develop the UK’s technical and vocational further education, significant obstacles persist in implementing and delivering them effectively. Challenges such as securing industrial placements, preparing teachers to run new programmes, and effectively communicating the benefits to prospective students, have led to delays in the rollout of some courses. Now marks a crucial opportunity for further education providers to collaborate with employers and national experts to drive improvements in T level delivery and rollout.

  • 94% of learners completed a placement in 2021/22 according to provisional results from the Department for Education
  • 89% of digital T Level learners were male in 2022 according to Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education statistics
  • 20% of students dropped out of T levels courses in 2022/23, as reported by the Department for Education
