Please do get involved and contact the team @ TLevelTransition.PROGRAMME@education.gov.uk if you have any questions.


Reminder to please complete T Level Professional Development questionnaire 

This week is the launch of the last wave of fieldwork for the T Level Professional Development (TLPD) Evaluation. Senior Leaders and those leading on the delivery of each T Level Route in providers that started delivery in September 2021 should receive an email from Adrianna Kawecka-Billam, a researcher in DfE, inviting them to complete a survey on T level preparation.

It should take around 20 minutes to complete and the data will feed into the wider evaluation of T Level Professional Development (TLPD) to inform and help improve the support on offer. We really appreciate your support during this busy time.

If you have any questions about it, please get in touch with Adrianna, DfE Project Manager via Adrianna.kawecka-billam@eduction.gov.uk
