We are supporting employers to deliver T level industry placements. We are investing nearly £60 million this year to build capacity across the sector to support the delivery of industry placements through the Capacity and Delivery Fund, with more funding announced from next year. This funding will enable providers to make it easier to organise and deliver placements to take away any burden from employers and help directly with costs to employers. The National Apprenticeship Service is also providing support and guidance for employers and we have published ‘how to’ guides to help make this as simple as possible for them. We will continue to review this support and we will be talking to all sized employers over the coming year to establish whether there are any gaps in support that we need to consider.
