Wave 5 T Level Capital Fund
We are pleased to announce that the next round of T Levels capital funding has been launched, and we have opened the window for applications for Wave 5 of the Buildings and Facilities Improvement Grant. This funding is aimed at providers who are delivering T Levels in September 2024.
Wave 5 of the T Level Capital Fund will make at least £150 million available for T Levels providers delivering in September 2024, split across funding for specialist equipment and brand new buildings and refurbishments.
The T Level Capital Fund is made up of two elements of funding:
- Specialist Equipment Allocation (SEA) – a one off payment for providers to purchase industry standard equipment for each new T Level route it offers. Providers delivering a new T Level route starting in September 2024 will receive their SEA in early 2024. Providers do not need to apply for the SEA – they will automatically receive an allocation if they complete their T Level data collection return.
- Buildings and Facilities Improvement Grant (BFIG), a bid based grant for providers to refurbish existing facilities or create new space to support T Level delivery. We have opened the window for applications for BFIG today.
Please do consider applying for the Buildings and Facilities Improvement Grant. You are eligible to apply if:
- You are registered to deliver T Levels in the 2024/25 academic year
- You have not previously received capital for the T Level route and site that you are applying for.
The deadline for applications is at 12 noon on Friday 3rd February. Guidance for applicants, including information on how to apply, can be found here: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/t-levels-capital-fund. If you have questions on the fund, you can submit them via the application portal.
We will be running a live webinar introducing the fund and the application process on the 7th of December. Please sign up to the webinar here: https://forms.office.com/r/Js1BawP8jZ.
