T Levels and Industry Placements
T Levels are set to revolutionise vocational training.  City College Norwich are one of a few colleges selected nationally to deliver T Levels in the academic year 2020-21.  We will be explaining what the new qualification means to recruiters.  Students must complete a long-term (350 hours) industry placement to achieve the new T-level qualification and we shall also be exploring what the requirements are for employers who are considering offering a placement to a student.
Education Secretary Damian Hinds said: ‘T Levels represent a once in a lifetime opportunity to reform technical education in this country so we can rival the world’s best performing systems. Technology and the world economy are fast-changing, and we need to make sure our young people have the skills they need to get the jobs of tomorrow. This is at the heart of our modern Industrial Strategy.’

Laura McLean is Director of Strategic Development and Implementation at City College Norwich.  She will be introducing T-levels and will be explaining what the new qualifications will mean to employers.  T Levels are courses which will be on a par with A levels and will provide young people with a new choice between technical and academic education post 16. She will also introduce industry placements, which are a compulsory element of the new T Level qualifications. Courses in construction, digital and education and childcare will be first taught from September 2020. A further 22 courses will be rolled out in stages from 2021, which will cover sectors such as finance & accounting, engineering & manufacturing, creative & design.
