Connect with employers interested in T Levels
Since the launch of T Levels in 2020, we have been working closely with providers to get your views on delivering T Levels.
We’ve heard that finding employers for industry placements continues to be a challenge. We also know while employers are interested in T Levels and industry placements, they aren’t always able to dedicate time to contacting providers.
With this in mind, we’ve been working on a new service which allows employers to express interest in T Levels, and providers to see that interest in order to initiate contact.
Our hope is that the Connect with employers interested in T Levels service will help you do exactly that: connect and build relationships with employers about all things T Levels - from career talks to hosting industry placements.
How it works
You’ll find a link to the service on the T Levels support for schools and colleges site, and you can sign in simply using your DfE Sign-in account.
Currently, the service shows you employers within 20 miles of your organisation who have expressed an interest in T Levels and industry placements. You can see what skill areas they’re interested in, as well as their contact details.
While the service is still in its infancy, you may not see many employers listed near you. But be assured, we are working to make employers across the country aware of the opportunity it offers.
The video demo below shows how the service works:

We’re already working on a number of additional features to enhance the service, including:
- notifications, so you know when new employers express an interest
- a customisable radius, so you can see employers within a distance that suits your organisation
We’re also working on making this service the place where you can update your organisation’s contact and course details. In the meantime, please remember to update your organisation’s information on the National Careers Service website so potential students and employers have the most up-to-date information.
Have your say
We’ll be running research sessions with providers over the next few months to ensure that these future enhancements meet your needs and to identify any additional features that may be of use to you.
If you would like to take advantage of the opportunity to shape the development of the service, please email email@example.com.
