T Level Scheme For Employers

T Level Industry Placements For Employers

T Levels have been created for 16-18 year olds as an A level alternative. They are two year courses which offer classroom based learning alongside an industry placement and are the equivalent of 3 A levels.  At the heart of each course, a 45-day industry placement will give you early access to the brightest talent entering your market.

T Levels have been created in collaboration with employers and businesses so that their content meets industry needs and prepares the student for work, further training or study.

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 local colleges and schools 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.

T level industry placements help your business:

  • find solutions for entry-level skills shortages
  • develop future talent for your business
  • capitalise on new ideas and a fresh perspective

Funding For Employers Offering T Level Industry Placements

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. In an environment where staff are doing multiple roles and struggling to meet difficult deadlines, an industry placement student could help support a key piece of work.

Employers can claim £1000 for every T Level student they host on a high-quality 45 day (315 hour) industry placement. Employers can claim for up to 20 students, starting their T Level placements from now until July 2022.
