Just 14 students against a target of 150 have been recruited for a pilot to test the government’s flagship T Levels with adult learners so far, FE Week can reveal.

The Department for Education confirmed in September that it had launched a trial involving adults at 11 colleges to test T Levels, with a view to analysing the trial in 2024 before a potential rollout from September 2025.

The pilot – which covers wave one and two pathways in digital, construction, education and childcare, and health and science T Levels – aimed to recruit 150 learners.

A Freedom of Information (FoI) request from FE Week has revealed that only two of the colleges have managed to recruit anyone to the pilot so far.
