This one day online conference will consider priorities for the rollout of the second wave of T Levels, the lessons learned from rolling out the first wave, as well as wider priorities for improving the provision and outlook post-pandemic.

The discussion is taking place in the context of wider policy developments, with delegates considering the impact of the Skills and Post-16 Education Bill and broader priorities for post-16 qualifications, as well as the recent support offered to employers and providers of the qualification for the delivery of T Level industry placements, such as the T Level Employer Incentive Scheme, and the T Level Employer Support Package.

The conference will also be an opportunity to look at the role of T Levels in the wake of Covid-19, and how they can be harnessed to fill the skills gap and support economic recovery following the pandemic.
