May 2024 T Level data collection – for 2020, 2021, 2022, 2023, 2024 & 2025 providers

We issued the May 2024 data collection on 15 April 2024, and this will be open until Friday 10 May. It is important to complete this form before the deadline, as the May 2024 data collection is the last opportunity to add new T Level routes from the 2025 to 2026 academic year. 

We will use the data from this collection for T Level planning and reporting, and specialist equipment allocations planning. Please complete the form here: T Level Data Collection.

If you have any queries about completing this form, please email

Industry Placement - Employer Support Fund (ESF)

The Employer Support Fund was made available as a one-year trial fund in FY23-24 to support employers with the costs associated with industry placements. The fund came to a close on 31st March 2024 and we emailed providers on the 17th of April to inform them of the closure of the fund. We are grateful for all the efforts happening in your institutions to ensure that every student has access to a placement. Overall, the ESF have proven to be a valuable way of testing employer need and we will be monitoring the evidence from the pilot to inform any future support offer.

In the meantime, we remain committed to delivering high-quality industry placements and encourage you to make use of the extensive additional support available on our provider and employer support websites. Please do also continue to upload any outstanding ESF claims to the online ESF data tracking tool by 5th May 2024. If you have any questions, you can get in touch with us at

Content and assessment review

As part of our commitment to continuous improvement, over the next 12 months DfE and IfATE, in conjunction with Ofqual, will oversee a review of the content and assessment of all T Levels - starting with wave 1 & 2 T Levels in the Construction, Digital, Education & Early Years and Health & Science routes. 

As part of this work, we want to hear more from providers on their experience of T Levels; in particular, the content and delivery of assessments. This includes holding a series of workshops with providers, which you may have been invited to take part in. 

To support this, we have sent a survey to all providers who have delivered assessments in these T Levels:

If you have received a link, then please do make sure you take the opportunity to share your feedback by 5pm on Monday 29 April, which will play a key part in this review work, and in the ongoing development of T Levels.  

Careers Guidance Grant Monitoring Forms 

This is a reminder to all providers who received the T Level Careers Guidance grant, the deadline for returning the Monitoring Form was 31 March 2024. 

If you have not yet sent your Monitoring Form, we would appreciate it if this form can be returned to us as soon as possible so we can review the recruitment activities you engaged in using the allocation.

If you are not the careers lead at your institution, please may you forward this message to them. You can return your completed form to and if you have any questions, please use the same email address.

Understanding T Level destinations

The Gatsby Foundation, working in partnership with RCU and T Level providers, has recently published a report on destinations of the first cohort of T Level students. The report summarises the range of progression paths followed by a sample of students, drawing from providers own destinations insight. The report sits alongside a developing suite of case studies to celebrate the success of T Level students – the report and first case study are available here. Data collection for the 2022/23 cohort is currently underway – Wave One and Two providers should have been contacted directly and your support for this project would be very much appreciated. If you would like to discuss this research, or recommend one of your T Level graduates for inclusion in a future case study, please email
