T Levels will provide young people with the cutting-edge skills and experience they need to secure a good job or progress into further training.Apprenticeships and Skills Minister Anne Milton said: The Taking Teaching Further programme shows how our sector is rising to the challenge of building the country’s future. This programme will add significant impetus to the recruitment of world-class teachers and trainers into FE who combine teaching excellence with hands-on industry experience. Those who have been successful in this first tranche will set a new benchmark for bringing in talent and expertise to improve technical teaching and support the development of our brilliant FE workforce. Chief Executive of the Education and Training Foundation David Russell said: Taking Teaching Further focuses on supporting priority sectors, including the first T Level subjects to be taught –Education and Childcare, Digital, and Construction – as well as Engineering and Manufacturing and other STEM subjects. The next round will open for applications in December.The first 3 T Levels will be taught in more than 50 colleges from 2020, with the remaining 22 phased in after that.
