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.
  2. Helping teachers in schools who are involved in advising young people to understand what T Levels and their potential benefits are.

These aims will be achieved via a combination of face-to-face and online CPD activity being delivered by the Association of Colleges, Association of School and College Leaders, and Strategic Development Network. Activity and resources will include in-house training events, a webinar series, workshops for feeder schools, workshops for providers who will begin delivering T Levels in 2020 or 2021, and online resources.

Nine role-specific modules were launched on 27 June (2019). They provide training specifically on how the introduction of T Levels will affect those in particular roles: teachers; teachers working with learners with SEND; student-facing front-line staff; employer-facing staff; teachers in feeder schools; human resources; exams and assessments; finance and MIS; and governors, directors, trustees and governance professionals. The modules include two videos featuring insight from the leaders of providers who will begin delivering T Levels in 2020. The modules are available on the T Levels area of the ETF’s Foundation Online Learning website. Please note that you will need to be logged in to access this content.

Face-to-face events will begin in September. Visit this page regularly or sign up to receive the ETF’s TLPD bulletin to keep up to date.
