We are excited to be offering our first T Level Technical Qualifications (TQs) from September 2021.
EAL, in collaboration with City & Guilds, will be offering the following TQs which will only be available in England.
New Industry Placement Cards for T Level Construction learners
To support learners on their T Level journey, which includes 315 hours of meaningful industry placement, Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) has introduced new Industry Placement Cards.
The new Industry Placement Cards available from September 2021 are for learners aged 16 or above registered onto a course requiring extended periods of work placement (minimum of 30 days, including T Levels), ultimately leading to a job in construction and the built environment.
For further information, including the Industry Placement card requirements, please visit the CSCS website.
We believe that these Industry Placement cards allow providers and employers to work together to support T Level learners on their journey.
What are T Levels?
T Levels are new two-year courses, developed in collaboration with employers and providers so that the content meets the needs of industry and prepares learners for the world of work.
T Levels, which follow GCSEs, will offer learners a mixture of classroom learning and ‘on-the-job’ experience during an industry placement of at least 45 days. They will provide the knowledge and experience needed to open the door into skilled employment, higher apprenticeship, or further education.
