  • Are you prepared; do you have a comprehensive understanding of what T Levels are? Will you be able to answer employers questions on the day?
  • Can you articulate the benefits to employersHave you got any examples of these from employers who have worked with you previously? 
  • Can you explain how T Levels are industry relevant, do you have any examples of collaboration with employers that you could share?
  • Can you demonstrate the high-quality training your T Level students receive/undertake?
  • How flexible are your curriculum teams on industry placement models – you may need to manage expectations from the start! 
  • Are you confident in being able to address concerns about common challenges or concerns employers raise with T Levels? 
  • Is the presentation aimed at a particular sectorYou may wish to tailor the content so that it feels relevant.  
  • Do you have a good understanding of how the relationship between your organisation and the employer will develop and the stages of engagement needed to host their first industry placement and sustain this beyond?
By addressing these questions you will be in a strong position to confidently introduce T Levels and Industry Placements to employers and demonstrate the value they can bring to their organisation and the broader industry – remember first impressions count!
