The government is creating a world class technical education system. The best way to deliver this successfully is through partnership between government, business experts and leaders and education professionals. We are therefore working closely with these stakeholders and their representative bodies to ensure we get these reforms right.

T levels will be shaped by industry professionals and will provide stretching technical content, delivered to industry standards. This will ensure the qualifications have real labour market value and credibility. The first teaching of T levels by a number of providers will commence in September 2020, with all routes available from September 2022.

We are planning a public consultation on the design of T levels, to allow all interested organisations and individuals to contribute towards the development of the new programmes. We will provide an update on progress with the development of T levels later this year.
