T Levels are the UK Government’s new technical study programme aimed at helping young people access skilled employment. The scheme seeks to provide participants with the technical knowledge and practical skills needed by industry and is part of a broader reform of the skills system.

Employers play a vital role in the planned programme as the critical component of the scheme is an appropriate, high quality work placement opportunity to be provided by them.

As such, employers’ views on the work readiness of young people, the feasibility of the proposed arrangements, and their support and engagement more generally, will be crucial in further shaping the programme for success.
