The government has released a list of colleges that will be teaching T-levels to students from 2020. The selected colleges range throughout England and will give teenagers the opportunity to try something different to traditional A levels.
The T-levels will include courses in education, construction, digital and childcare, where the student will also have a work placement with an employer for 40 – 60 days. This would look great on a CV as it gives them a taste of a career that they may like to pursue!
Once the initial four courses have been rolled out in 2020, it is intended that another 22 courses will be offered to students. These courses include the arts, engineering, finance and hair and beauty.
The potential problem with this could be getting employers to sign up, as BBC news have reported that 100,000 students will need a work placement to complete their T-level.
If this is a success, it could represent a revolution in post-16 study. This could be interesting for students who would like to complete a qualification but gain some work experience to build their knowledge of the industry.
