T Level October 2020 Update
Welcome to our October newsletter, We hope you’ve settled into the new term.
We’re really pleased to hear from some of our Wave 1 Providers about your T Level delivery- It’s been great to see photos of students learning in practical settings and to hear about their journey, please keep them coming.
We are pleased about the award of our Wave 3 contracts to deliver the Technical Qualifications in Accounting and in Finance. We’re looking forward to working with you on the development of the specification and assessment, which there will be more of later.
Wave 1 T Level Contracts
Published versions of our Core Component delivery materials are now available on the Course Materials tab for Construction and Digital. We will also be releasing draft delivery materials for the Occupational Specialist Components and will let you know when these are available.
Remember to look at our Engagement Hub, here you will find support videos for several of the TQ administration processes, plus an archive of our webinar events.
We are pleased to announce that we will be having a range of training sessions and Q&A events taking place in November 2020. The training sessions will be delivered by subject specialists who will be able to walk you through the specification, and how Pearson will be assessing the Core Exams and Employer Set Project.
Q&A sessions with the Sector Manager and Subject Advisor will give you the opportunity to ask any questions, discuss your experience with delivering the T Level and open the mic to you. Details and weblinks to register to the online events are below.

Wave 3 T Level Contracts
As previously mentioned, we’re really pleased to let you know that Pearson has been awarded two of the Wave 3 T Level contracts:
The teaching of these Technical Qualifications will commence in September 2022. We have already started the development of both qualifications and will keep you updated via these comms.
One of the key parts of our development process is our Provider Validation Panel (PVP) – this is where we ask you to take part in the development and work with us to make sure the Technical Qualification is accessible for your students and manageable for you as a Provider. We are seeking Expressions of Interest from Providers who would like to join our PVP.
To become a member, you must be:
- Intending on delivering either the Accounting and/or Finance in September 2022.
- Experienced in delivering Accounting and/or Finance qualifications/units.
- Able to attend PVP meetings (these will be remote, via teams or zoom) to discuss content, assessment, manageability, resources, etc.
All the best,
The Pearson T Levels Team
