Description: To increase the economic value of skills being supplied by the post 16 system, increasing take-up of high quality qualifications to improve skills, increasing productivity and social mobility. To enable the sustainable delivery of new high quality T Levels for 16-19 year olds.
DCA (RAG): Amber/Red
DCA text: Delivery confidence for the T Level Programme remains at Amber Red, due to the complexity and interdependency of the programme on internal and external factors. Significant success has been achieved against an extremely tight timetable, meeting all our major milestones. However, significant challenge remains in upskilling the FE workforce, securing further capital funding for future delivery beyond 2020 and whether funding levels will be sufficient to incentivise providers to continue to engage with T Levels. Risk remains on the ability to ensure that industry placements are available to support every student who applies for a T Level qualification, and we will need to monitor the impact of these flexibilities closely on the programme.
Start date: 2016-10-25
End date: 2023-09-30
Schedule text: There has been a very significant amount of effort applied to maintaining the delivery schedule, and we have met all of our key milestones, including our two first 'go / no go' points. Working collaboratively with delivery partners, we launched the ITT for the development of the 2020 qualifications and subsequently awarded contracts to Awarding Organisations to develop the first three T Levels. We remain on track to meet our next key 'go / no go' point in Feb 2020 with the approval of the first three qualifications.
