Education secretary Justine Greening will today announce the first three new T levels. According to the government’s T-level Action Plan, published today, the first subjects available will be education and childcare, construction and digital. These are set to be introduced in 2020, with the rest to be available by 2022.
While only a small number of providers will offer the first three qualifications from 2020, all pathways from the first six “priority routes” will be delivered by selected providers the following year, according to the government. This will be followed by further expansions until the “vast majority” of providers will offer T levels by 2024. The process to determine which providers will deliver the qualifications in 2020 will be confirmed by the government this autumn.
