Pearson delivered EO/Administration training on 29th September, for those of you who missed it a recording of the session can be found on our Provider page.

Providers are now able to make student registrations onto the Technical Qualification for cohorts commencing this academic year.

The standard registration window will close on 01 November, with late registrations starting on 02 November. A support video on how to make registrations and manage student details can be found on our Provider page.

We would like to remind providers of the importance of submitting complete and accurate Unique Learner Numbers (ULNs) for each individual student at the point of registration. The ULN is essential to how data is managed to ensure timely and accurate submissions. Where inaccurate ULNs are submitted this could result in a delay to us processing your student registration.

Entries for the Core Component Assessments for the November 2022 Series are now open. A support video on how to make entries can be found on our Provider page.

Please remember, you must make an entry for every student wishing to enter the assessment.

Providers wishing to make entries for re-sits please ensure you are familiar with the re-sit rules. These can be found in the TQ Specification, or use our support video on ‘assessment, results and re-sits'.

Centre support and Networking: Please note that the next T Level Construction Network Event is 11 October and can be booked here:

Network event: T Level in Construction

These sessions are mainly held for your benefit, to receive updates and network together, sharing best practice, which has proved valuable for new centres when speaking to centres who delivered from 2020. You can also join the following groups: Construction group and T level: Construction to ask specific queries and get notified of updates.

The next networking event for Digital is 12 October 4:00pm - 5:00pm and can be booked here:

Network event: T Level in Digital Production, Design and Development

We will give an update on the recent series and look forward to the assessments and teaching for the new 2022 specification. If you have anything you want covered or any questions then please ask in the Facebook Group or via the subject advisor.

Q&A Network: The next Legal, Finance and Accounting network session is 19th October 4-5PM and can be booked here:

Network event: T Level in Accounting, Finance and Legal Services

This will include a welcome to those starting Finance and Accounting this term and an update on the Legal Services development.

Draft materials are being reviewed and will be uploaded to the website in September. These materials will focus on supporting the teaching and learning of key competencies which are present within the occupational specialisms, namely data analysis; communication (written and verbal for different audiences) and report writing.

Feedback will be sought from providers and next steps agreed as to whether additional support materials should be commissioned.

We are currently working in the latter stages of the qualification design and approval process. We hope to be able to share final specifications and specimen assessment materials in early 2023.  We will provide updates in webinars prior to that and have support available once approval is gained.

Pearson will be hosting a second Legal Services session for those interested in delivering this T Level. This will walk you through what the draft content and assessments currently look like with an aim to help you plan your student recruitment this term. The session will take place within our Q&A Network for LFA on: 19th October 4-5PM

Our first webinar was held last June, if you missed it, you can listen again via our Provider Page
