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 include face-to-face events, in-house training, a webinar series, workshops for feeder schools and workshops for FE providers who will begin delivering T Levels in 2020 or 2021. These can be booked via the ETF Booking site.

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 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
  • 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.

Face-to-face regional events and webinars which build on the online modules will begin in September 2019, with booking now available via the ETF Booking site. In-house training is also available.
