Understanding T Levels

This strand of the offer has two aims:

1. Ensuring that the further education workforce has sufficient high-quality information about T Levels so that they both understand what the new qualifications mean for their role and can advise all students effectively about their options. This will include advice for those with SEND.

Nine role-specific online modules, hosted on Foundation Online Learning, provide training specifically on how the introduction of T Levels will affect those in particular roles:

  • teachers
  • teachers of learners with SEND
  • student-facing front-line staff
  • employer-facing staff
  • teachers in feeder schools
  • human resources
  • exams and assessments
  • finance and MIS
  • governors, trustees and governance professionals.

The modules include two videos featuring insight from the leaders of providers who will begin delivering T Levels in 2020.

Further activity builds on these online modules and includes role-specific webinars and workshops, and more general regional face-to-face events for all those at an FE provider involved in delivering T Levels. In-house events are also available and can be tailored to suit specific professional development needs, as well as timetables and location. These can be booked now via the ETF Booking site.

Previous webinars can be watched via the Foundation Online Learning website. You must be logged in to access these resources.

2. Helping teachers in schools who are involved in advising young people to understand what T Levels and their potential benefits are, as well as the implications for their roles.

Regional, face-to-face courses aimed specifically at those working in feeder schools responsible for advising young people on their post-16 options are taking place in locations across England. Places can be booked here.

A webinar took place on 14 October 2019 and can be watched via the Foundation Online Learning website. You must be logged in to access these resources.

This strand of activity is being delivered by the Association of Colleges, Association of School and College Leaders, and Strategic Development Network.
