T Level vocation industry placements

from 2020, students aged between 16 – 19 will be given the opportunity to take up a technical alternative to A levels. T levels consist of a 2 year technical programme, designed to work in line with apprenticeships.

It is well reported that there is a shortage of school leavers going into technical trades, resulting in a skills gap in the UK. It is the hope that T Levels will inspire the next generation¬† to work within the industry making recruitment for business’ easier.

T Levels require a 45-60 day industry placement. This allows them to put into practice the skills that they have learnt. It is vital that business owners support this new scheme as the skills shortage is only set to increse.
