We have published the revised Framework for Delivery for providers delivering the T Level Transition Programme from September 2022 onwards. Alongside the Framework, we have published national technical outcomes for the first 7 T Level routes, a student guide and resources to help providers develop their programmes. If you have any questions about the changes, please contact your AoC relationship manager in the first instance.


T Level Provider List

The T Level provider list was recently updated on GOV.UK. This document contains a list of providers who will be delivering T Levels from the 2021 to 2022, 2022 to 2023 and 2023 to 2024 academic years, the T Level routes they intend to deliver and the providers delivering the Transition Programme in the 2021 to 2022 and 2022 to 2023 academic years.

The list will next be updated in summer 2022 to show providers’ latest T Level delivery plans. This will include any changes made since the December update and information provided in the May T Level data collection.
