Fresh funding has been announced to entice employers into offering T Level placements – following the failure of previous sweeteners to get businesses on board.

The Department for Education this morning revealed that a £12 million fund will be available to help employers offering placements in the 2023/24 financial year, which can be used to cover the costs such as set-up expenses, equipment or staff training.

In addition, all providers delivering T Levels – the flagship new qualifications designed to be the technical equivalent of A-levels – in the 2023/24 academic year will get a one-off grant of up to £10,000 for additional careers guidance for students.

T Levels include a mandatory industry placement of 45 days or 315 hours with an employer.
