This week's newsletter includes updates on:

Industry placement completion deadline for the Manage T Level Results service - 23rd June

Providers are required to input data on industry placement completion into the Manage T Level Results service by 23rd June 2023 (in line with the VTQ deadline for evidence). 

We have published guidance for exams officers on the T Level Support for schools and colleges website. Find out more here.

June T Level 2023 Recruitment Progress survey

The 2023 Recruitment Progress survey is currently open and will close on 9 June. The survey asks about the total number of students who have accepted an offer of learning for a T Level course starting in September 2023, and the total number of industry placements secured for this cohort. As the information is used to update ministers on T Level recruitment progress for the 2023 to 2024 academic year and to determine whether the T Level Careers Guidance funding is helping to support the recruitment drive, we would appreciate if providers planning to deliver in 2023 could complete the survey by the 9 June.

You can complete the survey here. This was shared with the T Level main contact(s) on 5 June.

Onsite Construction – a new pathway to full competence for students

T Level students are already able to acquire a CSCS ‘trainee card’ to ensure they can work onsite during their Industry Placement. Now, to support progression into work from Onsite Construction T Levels, the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) is working with DfE, Gatsby, NOCN and CSCS to fund a pilot a scheme to support progression for T Level graduates who wish to pursue a career in Carpentry & Joinery or Bricklaying.
