Update your T Level information now
To promote your T Level courses on the T Levels and National Careers Service websites you need to ensure you have updated the National Careers Service Course Directory.
If you're a provider offering a T Level that started in 2020, 2021 or 2022, you can update your course details directly using the National Careers Service’s Publish to the course directory service.
If you're a provider starting to deliver T Levels in 2023 or due to deliver courses starting in 2023, you can now also update your details in the service.
If you have not updated your course information, potential students and employers will not be able to find the T Levels you are offering.
Why do you need to update the Course Directory?
T Levels listed on Publish to the course directory will be used to populate the:
- T Levels website
- ‘Find a course’ service on the National Careers Service website
- T Levels and industry placement support for employers website
You will need to directly maintain information on the T Levels you are offering to ensure this happens – this is the only way to change course information on the T Levels website.
Keeping your course information up to date will directly support student recruitment and employer engagement for industry placements by allowing people to search for T Levels in their area.
Step-by-step guide to updating course information
To make sure students and employers can find up-to-date information about your T Levels:
- Create an DfE Sign-in account if you do not already have one. 'Publish to the course directory' is accessed through your DfE Sign-in.
- Go to Publish to the course directory. Once you are signed in, check that the information listed is correct. If it's not, you can add, update or remove courses.
- Watch the walkthrough demonstration video below to see how easy it is to update your information.
- Continue to check your information regularly, and update when necessary.
The video below shows you how the service works:

Published to the course directory is a service from the National Career Service, where providers add course, apprenticeship and more recently T Levels information. This video is to help you as a provider, understand the changes we have made to publish to the course directory as a provider of T Levels. This information is used by students and citizens when searching for courses on the National Career Service, Find a Course and tlevels.gov.uk helping enhance their career opportunities. If you are a T Levels provider, you will be given access to the T Levels that you are eligible to offer at this time. For this launch, we have already set up your publish to the course directory account with T Levels information for 2021. This means that your T Levels information has been published on the National Career Service, Find a course and T Levels campaign site.
You can add more T Levels and you can edit the existing information.
We have included exemplar content for each T Level to help get you started.
We have added the venues for your T Levels based on the data you have provided for the T Levels campaign site. This means that you no longer have to email changes to the T Levels team and are in control of your data on published to the course directory. All courses have been given a generic start date of the 1st of September 2021.
Any information that is standard for a T Level is not included but will be displayed on Find a Course and the T Levels campaign site.
For example, the cost description is the same for all, therefore, we have saved you the time of having to input this. Any changes published on published to the course directory are automatically updated to Find a Course. The T Levels campaign site is updated overnight. As more T Levels become available, access will be provided to enable you to add these to publish to the course directory and displayed to students and citizens on find a course and the T Levels campaign site.
If you have any questions please email our support team or call the number to speak to someone.
