T levels: expressions of interest

30 January 2018

The ESFA has now invited ESFA-funded providers in satisfactory financial health, and with a ‘good’ or ‘outstanding’ inspection rating, to work with the DfE and pioneer the first three T levels when they are introduced from 2020.

The criteria for being selected is clearly laid out and expressions of interest need to be returned by 28 February. Following this set of responses, the DfE will make judgements about whether it needs to refine its plans or perhaps introduce different financial incentives to encourage more colleges and schools to participate.
