  2. Connect with employers interested in T Levels service: click here for guidance about how to register. This enables you to find employers that have ‘registered an interest’ in engaging with T Level providers. Employers have registered over 2,000 opportunities since November 2022
  3. National Careers Service course directory: click here for guidance about updating your T Level information. It is important this is kept updated as it is enables employers to search for T Level providers via T Levels and industry placement support for employers.
  4. Your website: After employers leave, check how easy it is for them to find information about industry placements on your website, and to contact you. It can be good practice to include a prominent employer tab or section on your main landing page. 
  5. Industry placement delivery approaches: remember that a range of approaches are available to ensure students can access high-quality and meaningful placements, because we know that a ‘one size fits all’ approach does not work for employers, providers or students.
