T-Level professional panels: Application deadline fast approaching

08.08.2017

In January this year, the Department for Education (DfE) launched a recruitment exercise seeking experienced industry professionals to help shape a new system of technical education in England - referred to as T levels. The ambition is to develop technical education that genuinely prepares individuals for skilled employment, with employers sitting at the heart of the system.

Following the general election, DfE reviewed priorities, and as a result, the first teaching of T levels is proposed for September 2020, with all routes available as planned in September 2022. To meet this planned delivery, DfE are now conducting further recruitment of T level panel members for specific routes, including Digital. This is an exciting opportunity to help design the content of the classroom-based T-Level qualifications, and advise on broader programme requirements.

To apply, you need to be an experienced practitioner or manager/trainer of practitioners who can articulate what it takes to move to skilled employment in your field. Applications will be welcomed too, from representatives of professional bodies or trade associations, if you are able to demonstrate the ability to represent and consult across industry and you have experience of working on the development of industry standards.

It may be that you have already applied and have heard back or are awaiting a response, but we thought it was important to communicate this opportunity once more to everyone, with the deadline less than two weeks away.

Further information, along with the 'expression of interest' form can be found by clicking on the following link - Technical Education T Level Panels.

Responses should be sent by noon on Monday 21 August to: employer.panels@education.gov.uk
