T Level January 2021 Update
Welcome to your January E-Bulletin
For 2020 Providers, we sent comms on 10 December about the adaptations that will take place for summer 2021 Core assessments. At this moment in time, these arrangements are correct. However, considering the recent Government announcements we are awaiting confirmation from the Institute and Ofqual if there will be any further changes to the T Level Summer 2021 Series. We understand that you’re keen to know if further changes will take place, we will keep you updated and provide you with as much clarity as we can once we know.
We have ‘Getting Started’ training taking place this term. All the dates and links to register are below. We have broken the training into four parts, each part will be recorded, so if you can’t attend all of them in person, you’ll be able to listen back at your own leisure. Prior to the training, we suggest you familiarise yourself with the specification, and if you didn’t attend our 'Getting to Know the Specification' event you can listen back to it via our Engagement Hub.
- Part A: Planning the programme 4 March 2021, 10:00

These ½ Termly Q&A sessions with the Sector Manager and Subject Advisor will give you the opportunity to ask questions, discuss with other tutors your experience with delivering the T Level and share good practice. Details and weblinks to register onto our networking events are below.
We have uploaded our draft Delivery Guides for the Occupational Specialist Components to the website. Although they are in a draft format, they will give you an idea as to how the materials will look, further amends are likely to be minor editorial and visual amends only.
Registrations have been open since 1 September; please note the standard and late registration window are now closed, with very late registrations starting on the 23 December 2020. A support video on how to make registrations and manage student details can be found in the Engagement Hub.
Entries for the Core Component Assessments for the Summer 2021 Series are now open. A support video on how to make entries is available via the Engagement Hub.
Following each Milestone Submission to the Institute we will give a Provider Walkthrough to show you how the specifications are shaping up and what the assessments are looking like.
- Our 1 Milestone submission is on 1 February 2021
- Walkthrough for Accounting and Finance will take place on 04 February 2021, 15:30
The first-ever T Levels media campaign targeting employers, launched on 01 December 2020 by the DfE. The awareness-raising campaign will run until the end of February 2021. The campaign will target CEOs, Directors, HR managers, employers and line managers in industries including design, surveying and construction, digital production, design and development, and education and childcare, to cover the first three T Level sector areas. The campaign will target employers through several channels including social media – on LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.
All the best,
The Pearson T Levels Team
