Question for Department for Education

UIN 118003, tabled on 6 December 2017

The government will introduce T levels in a phased approach, with a small number of providers delivering three T levels from September 2020, and the remaining T levels being launched in two waves, in September 2021 and 2022. As set out in our Careers Strategy, we will ensure that clear information about T levels is provided to parents, teachers, young people and careers professionals at the appropriate times during this rollout, to help inform students of their options in further education.

We want all young people to be aware of the benefits of studying T levels. A public consultation on the implementation of T levels was launched on 30 November, and the responses to this will help to inform our marketing strategy.
