Government is investing up to £95 million through the T Level Capital Fund


Education Secretary, Gavin Williamson has announced that the government is investing up to £95 million through the T Level Capital Fund so young people taking the new technical qualifications from 2021 will have access to industry standard equipment and high-quality facilities.

Following a successful first phase, the government is also announcing the expansion of its innovative T-Level Professional Development (TLPD) offering by £15 million in 2020-21. The programme - which is being delivered by the Education and Training Foundation (ETF) – provides tailored training and support to boost FE teachers and leader’s skills, industry knowledge and expertise for students to benefit from. 

Richard Beresford chief executive at the NFB said: “We are delighted to hear of the boost in funding for T levels as technical qualifications are an excellent way of training skilled workers and convincing many more learners that University is not always the best way into a fulfilling career. This Government has been ambitious in backing technical education and we need the media, schools, parents and employers to throw all their support behind them.”
