Talent boost for English businesses as T Levels secure £50m investment
Businesses across England will benefit from a boosted pool of talent thanks to new multi-million pound investment into industrial qualifications.
The government will invest £50m in colleges, schools and sixth forms delivering T Levels across England from 2022 to improve and expand teaching spaces and facilities.
Co-created with over 250 employers including Fujitsu and Amazon, T Levels are equivalent to three A levels and combine classroom study with industry placements.
Sixty-five building projects will receive a share of the funding, providing thousands of students with industry quality equipment for hands-on experience as well as enhanced facilities.
Minister for Apprenticeships and Skills Gillian Keegan, commented: “T Levels are a game changer for young people, providing a high-quality technical equivalent to A Levels that have been designed hand-in-hand with leading employers so students and businesses can be sure they will get the skills they need to thrive in a high tech economy.
“This multi-million pound investment will mean even more students will benefit from world-class facilities, giving them access to brilliant new buildings that will help them get ready for the world of work.”
