T level Construction - Network event

Our next T level Network event for Construction is on 3 May 2022, from 13:00-14:00. 

Our Q&A session will be led by the Subject Advisor and the Sector Manager for Construction. The session will not follow a set agenda or format, although we will have prepared some discussion topics to get the session going; instead they are intended to be an opportunity for Technical Qualification tutors to bring their questions into an open forum. You will be able to ask us questions and seek clarification on the content and assessment of the Technical Qualification, which we'll do our best to answer and if we can't...we'll take your questions away and get back to you. You will also have the opportunity to share your ideas, ask for help/suggestions from other Providers so you can pick up some practical tools and advice to take back into your classroom.

Book yourself to this event here
