T Levels are a new range of courses that will give 16 to 19-year-olds the technical knowledge and practical skills that are valued by industry; they follow on from GCSEs as a technical alternative to A-Levels.
They are the biggest reform to vocational training in a generation, giving learners the skills, knowledge, and attitude to excel in their chosen careers.
T Levels are available in England only and will become one of the main choices for learners after GCSEs alongside:
- Apprenticeships - for learners who wish to learn a specific occupation ‘on the job’
- A levels - for learners who wish to continue academic education
ILM and City & Guilds will be developing the T Level technical qualification (TQ) for Management and Administration, available for first teaching in September 2022. This new TQ will offer learners a fantastic opportunity to gain hands on experience and important theoretical knowledge of how businesses operate, and how they can have a meaningful impact when they enter the workplace.
Support for providers: what you need to deliver the T Level for Management and Administration
Employers and providers have been working together to develop T Levels, with support from Department for Education and the Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education (the Institute). Groups of employers have participated in T Level panels to define the skills and requirements for each T Level course.
The Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education (the institute) and the Department for Education (DfE) has awarded ILM and City & Guilds to be the delivery partner for new T Level technical qualifications (TQs) in Management and Administration, from September 2022.
