It outlines additional support, guidance and flexibilities to help employers and providers deliver high quality industry placements and includes:

·        new guidance setting out the key roles and responsibilities for providers and employers around industry placements, including a guide for students to help them prepare for their placement

·        additional delivery models for industry placements in the Construction and Engineering & Manufacturing routes, to reflect modern practices

·        modified delivery targets for Capacity and Delivery Fund placements to reflect the impact of the coronavirus on employers

·        extension of both the Employer Support Fund pilot and the Employer Support Package also in response to Covid-19 

With the first T Levels launching in September, these measures will help ensure that T Level students starting this year and in subsequent years can access high quality placements that will support their future careers and deliver real benefits to the businesses hosting them.
