Employers will be able to claim £1000 for every T Level student they host on a high-quality industry placement, as part of a new incentive scheme.
T Levels are new technical qualifications, co-created with employers including Fujitsu and Amazon, equivalent to three A Levels and combine classroom study with industry placements.
Designed to generate the skilled workforce that businesses need for the future and to give students the experience they need to progress into well-paid jobs, further study or an apprenticeship, Industry placements form a key component of T Level courses. Students spend at least 45 days (or 315 hours) with an employer providing local businesses a chance to nurture and build a skilled talent pipeline for the future.
Under the T Level Employer Incentive Fund employers will be able to claim £1000 for up to 20 students they host on a 45 day (315 hour) industry placement, from now until July 2022.
Employers interested in accessing the incentive payments and offering T Level industry placements should contact: 08000 150 600 (option 4) or fill out an industry placement contact form
