T Levels are a new two-year qualification for 16 to 19 year olds. Designed with employers, each T Level is equivalent to 3 A levels and will help young people develop the knowledge, attitude and practical skills to thrive in the workplace. At the heart of each course, a 45-day industry placement will give you early access to the brightest talent entering your market.


From helping you with recruitment, improving innovation and increasing your organisation’s productivity, you can reap the benefits of hosting an industry placement.


Employers across England are partnering with local colleges and schools to trial industry placements. You can join this vocational revolution right now. Students are ready to start placements in areas such as construction, digital and IT, health and science, legal, accounting and finance.

Industry placements are an efficient way to bring in new talent and develop the skills you need as an employer. You’ll partner with a local college, school or training provider who can help you:

  • find the right student
  • assist with paperwork
  • support you to plan and deliver the best possible placement


Employers can now claim £1000 for every T Level student they host on a high-quality industry placement, as part of a new incentive scheme.

The T Level employer incentive fund recognises the impact of the pandemic on many businesses, and has been designed to help cover financial constraints employers may face as a barrier to hosting placements in the short term.

Employers will be able to claim £1,000 for up to 20 students they host on a 45 day (315 hour) industry placement, from now until July 2022. The incentive offers businesses an excellent opportunity to tap into the emerging talent pipeline, whilst supporting the skilled workforce of the future.

Those interested in accessing the incentive payments and offering T Level industry placements should contact: 08000 150 600 (choose option 4) or fill out an industry placement contact form online.
