The Education and Training Foundation has been asked by the DfE to deliver a workforce development offer ahead of T Levels. The T Level Professional Development offer aims to ensure that further education and post-16 providers are T Level ready. This means ensuring that teachers, trainers, and leaders have the teaching skills, subject knowledge and confidence needed to deliver high-quality courses from the outset.

  • Ongoing professional development needs analysis: self-assessment tools and support from Professional Development Advisers.
  • Understanding T Levels: ensuring staff understand T Levels, and what they mean for their roles, as well as being able to inform learners about their options.
  • Teacher Development Programme: pedagogy, subject knowledge, professional practice, functional skills.
  • Regional Knowledge and Industry Insights: networks, collaborative projects, staff placements in industry, employer-facilitated workshops.
  • Organisational Readiness: support for managers, governors and governance professionals to be T Level ready.
