Get the Jump Campaign

We are delighted to share with you the launch of the Get the Jump campaign, which brings together, for the first time, all education and training choices for young people to help them get the skills for life, signposting them to new pages on the National Careers Service.

T Levels will be featured heavily as an exciting new option for young people, and we hope you find the below resources helpful as you continue to promote T Levels to young people in your area. Please note that the previous T Level campaign materials and toolkit are still there for you to use in addition. The new campaign features the T Level brand to give the read across from the umbrella activity to specific T Level promotion.

‘Get the Jump’ is now running across England with advertising including: out-of-home posters (including at bus stops), radio, digital audio (including podcasts), online video, social media and search engines. The campaign will also include a paid partnership with Snapchat, PR including influencer activity, regional media and a new ‘Get the Jump’ content hub  available on the National Careers Service website

The ‘Get the Jump toolkit and assets are available to help you promote T Levels alongside other post 16 choices. Assets include:

  • ‘Get the Jump’ radio adverts, including a T Level specific advert
  • Films
  • Social media assets (statics and GIFs)
  • Posters (portrait and landscape)
  • Templates for social media, websites and newsletters
  • Information and guidance about the brand, including logos to download
  • Key messages and guidance on tone of voice, to support you when drafting your own copy or to use as they appear. These have been developed using insights and feedback from young people.

If you have questions or would like to get in touch about prospective case studies, please contact the campaign leads at GetTheJump.stakeholders@education.gov.uk.

Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education Updates

The Institute has made the decision to pause the development of the Habitat management (land and water) Occupational Specialism within the T Level in Agriculture, Land Management and Production. This will enable the Institute to further engage with sector and employer representatives to assess whether there is sufficient evidence to support the continued inclusion of the specialisms and ensure that the content and structure of the qualification provides students with progression opportunities to relevant occupations. If there is sufficient evidence to support the development of the specialism then it will be restarted at a later date.


Awarding Organisations Updates


From 28 February eligible providers will be able to request approval to deliver the below NCFE-developed T Level Technical Qualifications from September 2022:  

Guidance for providers on NCFE’s provider and product approval processes can be found on the support pages. Alternatively, providers can contact their dedicated T Level account executive for support.

They also sent separate comms to let Design, Surveying and Planning for Construction Providers know of a change they’re making to the Occupational Specialist Project assessment window for Summer 2022.  

To ensure students have equal access to the assessment and there is comparability across all Providers they have moved the window back by a full week, so assessment will now commence on Monday 25th April 2022.  

This has been reflected in our Construction Key Dates Schedule
