To ask the Secretary of State for Education, how the per student funding rate for T levels will compare to the rate for A levels.
11 January 2019
T levels will be larger and more demanding than current equivalent programmes, and the government has announced the investment of an additional £500 million a year to support providers to deliver T levels once they are fully rolled out.
The funding rates for T level programmes will be higher than for existing study programmes, and are subject to a public consultation which was published on 27 November 2018 and will close on 19 February 2019 – available at: https://consult.education.gov.uk/fe-funding/t-level-funding-methodology/. The consultation document proposes that T level funding rates will vary depending on the size of the T level, with the smallest attracting a rate of £4,170 per year and the largest £5,835. As set out in the T levels funding consultation document, additional funding would also be provided on top of these rates through the funding formula.
