More than 34,000 activities supported to date as part of T Level Professional Development offer

The ETF is proud to have supported 34,341 activities as part of the T Level Professional Development (TLPD) offer, funded by the Department for Education (DfE), since the TLPD Pilot Phase began in 2019.

Participation figures for the period May 2019 to January 2023, show that over 18,000 individuals (18,312) have participated in the programme.

Of those who accessed the TLPD offer in the academic year 2021 to 2022, 95 per cent of survey respondents said the offer would have a positive impact on their professional practice. Participants continue to share their positive experiences after accessing TLPD support. One TLPD participant commented on the course they attended: “I found the speakers inspirational and knowledgeable. It filled me with confidence to begin to deliver an excellent T Level experience.”

From the beginning of this academic year to the end of January 2023, 1,802 teaching and teaching support staff engagements with TLPD activities have taken place. Of these, 1,207 were for face-to-face or live-online CPD activities, and 595 were with the on-demand online learning offer.

The ETF has been supporting the delivery of T Levels since 2019 and was awarded a four-year contract by the DfE in February 2020 to continue to support providers, leaders and practitioners to deliver this continuing professional development to the FE sector. 

The TLPD offer for 2022/2023 includes new opportunities for schools preparing to deliver T Levels and aims to meet the needs of the workforce alongside relevant regional, employer and curriculum requirements. New course offers this academic year include the Assessment in T Levels course, launched in early March 2023, which is designed to build participants’ understanding of how the principles of assessment are put into practice for T Levels.

The ETF continues to work with providers from across the FE sector, employers, professional bodies and key partners to enhance the programme and ensure teachers are fully supported during the T Level roll out.
