T Levels: Technical Education

Industry placements can help drive your business growth.

By partnering with Activate Learning on quality, co-created industry placements, you will have direct input into a talent pipeline that meets your future recruitment requirements.

Our recent T Levels breakfast briefing in Reading outlined the upcoming technical qualifications and showed how industry placements can develop the staff your business needs. 

This short event film recaps the importance of industry placements and how you can use them to recruit the best upcoming talent now.

What you need to know about T Levels 

T Levels launch in September 2020 as a technical skills-based alternative to A Levels. The qualification itself is equivalent to three A Levels.

For this new qualification, 16–19 year olds will undertake a collaborative 45-day work placement with a local business in addition to studying for an industry-specific technical qualification at college. 

This Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) T Levels slide deck outlines what T Levels are and why they are needed.
