T Levels for Employers

T Levels are a new, 2-year qualification for 16 to 19 year olds. Designed with employers, each T Level is equivalent to 3 A levels and helps young people develop the knowledge, attitude and practical skills to thrive in the workplace. At the heart of each course, a 45-day industry placement will give you early access to the brightest talent entering your market.

What are T Levels?

T Levels are a new qualification for students aged 16 to 19 who’ve finished GCSEs. They are the biggest reform to vocational training in a generation, giving young people the skills, knowledge, and attitude to excel in their careers.

Designed by employers for employers

Employers have told us that you face a skills shortage that could impact the future success of your businesses. In response, the government has worked alongside more than 220 employers to design T Level courses that deliver the skills your organisations need.

These employers span a range of industries, and include household names, such as Fujitsu, Skanska and GlaxoSmithKline, as well as many smaller employers.

A simpler approach to vocational training

Employers tell us that the current range of vocational education courses is confusing and doesn’t always meet your needs.

T Levels are part of the government’s plan to simplify vocational education and create a system that you can trust and understand. They provide a clear and high-quality, technical alternative to the current range of post-16 education and training options.

Introducing industry placements

Every T Level student completes an industry placement that lasts a minimum of 315 hours (approximately 45 days).

Industry placements give you a unique opportunity to help develop new talent and get young people work ready. They also bring many business benefits.

What are the business benefits of industry placements?

Industry placements are an ideal solution for entry-level skills. They can help you build a pipeline of talent for junior positions or apprenticeships.

You can avoid many of the costs associated with recruitment by working with us to connect with young people who are deciding on their careers.

Placements give you a chance to work alongside the next generation of workers entering your industry, making sure they develop the knowledge, attitude and practical skills to succeed.

Placements create opportunities for staff to act as buddies, coaches or line managers to students. This helps existing staff gain management and mentorship skills, both of which are known to increase job satisfaction.

For smaller employers, young people can be an invaluable source of new and interesting ideas that can change the way you think about doing business.

Industry placements create opportunities for a diverse range of 16 to 19 year olds. Diversity helps your organisation understand customers better, creates better performing teams and increases innovation and creativity.

Traditionally, organisations have supported social causes by making charitable donations. Industry placements are different in that they help create ‘shared value’. They’re a way of giving back that benefits the young people in your community as well as your business.

A commitment to industry placements raises your organisation’s profile, locally and nationally, especially as T Levels gain more public exposure with your customers and clients.

We're already working with more than 80 businesses and organisations who are benefiting from industry placements.
