We have raised awareness of T Levels through targeted engagement with schools and colleges, working with education sector organisations, and marketing campaigns aimed at students, parents and employers. There are currently just over 100 providers delivering T Levels, including colleges and schools. Over 400 providers are planning to deliver T Levels from 2023, with all general further education colleges included at that point.

We have given significant, early support to providers to ensure readiness for delivery, including network events, peer support, and funding to build capacity for industry placements and workforce preparation. We are also working closely with Ofsted to ensure the successful delivery of T Levels more broadly and have commissioned a thematic survey of the first three years of T Level delivery. This will help us identify strengths, weaknesses and areas for improvement across a substantial sample of providers to help inform best practice for the future rollout.
