Understanding T Levels CPD Offer

Working in partnership with the Department for Education, the Education and Training Foundation (ETF) has developed a high-quality professional development offer to support teachers, trainers and leaders who will be delivering T Levels in 2020 and beyond. The support aims to ensure that teachers and trainers have the teaching skills, subject knowledge and confidence needed to deliver a high-quality T Level programme from the outset.

The Understanding T Levels CPD offer will aim to:

  1. ensure that the FE workforce has information about T Levels so they a) understand the implications for their role and b) can advise students (including those with SEND) effectively about their options
  2. ensure that teachers in schools advising young people understand what T Levels are and what the potential benefits are.
