Join the Skills Revolution
Play your part in shaping the workforce of the future! Come and be part of South Devon College’s exciting T Level Pilot Scheme and see how industry placements could benefit your business!
T Levels are becoming part of the national educational landscape, and as a College that’s always had a great network with employers and enhancing our education through that, we are calling on employers to help make T Levels the best they can be.
What are T Levels?
- T Levels are a key part of the government’s reforms to revolutionise skills and technical education, generating the skilled workforce that businesses need for the future
- T Levels tackle skills shortages, whilst supporting and developing the future talent pool, with students bringing new ideas and a fresh perspective
- The £1000 T Level incentive fund supports employers impacted by the pandemic, to ensure they can continue to host industry placements
Industries with a skills shortage can now benefit from T Levels and take advantage of a fully-supported route which could potentially lead into successful apprenticeships and future employment.
You can take part in a number of ways – our Industry Placement Co-ordinator Kerry Pilato will fully support you and your students through the whole process, and will discuss and resolve any issues relating to the industry placement with regular check-ins.
What are the differences?
|Work Experience||Industry Placements|
|Takes place over a time span of 1-2 weeks||A longer, structured period of employment flexible to your needs, typically up to 3 months in duration|
|Focuses on general employability skills||Allows students to develop practical vocational skills relevant to their profession|
|Acts as a taster of the workplace||Can lead into successful apprenticeships for future employment|
