T Levels: Preparing for Success


The Government’s radical streamlining of technical qualifications raises challenges and uncertainties for further education providers. Colleges, employers and awarding bodies need to understand the single licensing model and be prepared for the implementation of T levels, so that young people can transform their vocational skills and benefit from the overhaul from the outset.

Join Westminster Briefing in March to hear how you can effectively develop, deliver and award T Levels in 2020. Following the latest T Level Action Plan, hear the results of the T-Level work experience pilots and implement findings to ensure your college meets the needs of employers and higher education institutions to improve outcomes for students.

Confirmed Speakers:

  • Simeon Corfield, Education Consultant (chair)
  • Lucy Sydney, Director of Strategic Relationships for VTQ, Ofqual
  • Mike Davies, Deputy Director for T Level Development, Department for Education
  • Sam Dilliway-Davies, Head of T Level Professional Development, The Education and Training Foundation
  • Becci Newton, Deputy Director, Public Policy Research, Institute for Employment Studies
  • Dr Joanna Goodman, Education Consultant, Cromwell Consulting

Key Issues to be Addressed:

• T Levels: progress over the last 6 months
• DfE competition: how your bid can win the right to develop, deliver and award the first qualifications
• Ensuring the reforms are valued by and match the needs of employers
• Smoothing the pathway from tertiary education to degree apprenticeships and technical degrees
• Lessons from the T Level work experience pilot: building relationships with employers
• Providing clarity and support during the transition period
• Best practice from providers who are set to deliver T Levels in 2020
