The T Level Foundation Year should give students the opportunity for meaningful employer engagement. This should include the following:

  • High quality work experience
  • Work preparation and employability skills development 
  • Route-based work-related projects

Qualifications available from Pearson: 

Entry, L1 and L2 BTEC WorkSkills suite

Entry and L1 Essential Digital Skills

Learner skills and experience

When starting their T Level Foundation Year,  your students will have a range of work and employability experience. 

Some students may already have regular part-time jobs giving them exposure to multiple employability skills, but they may need specific skill development such as Level 1 Essential Digital Skills in the workplace, or a specific unit from the Level 2 BTEC WorkSkills. 

Other students may never have had a job and will need more support and assistance in this area. Our BTEC WorkSkills suite starts at Entry Level, enabling you to choose units at the right level to really boost your student's confidence and skills in this area.
