The Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education is seeking views on proposed outline content for the Engineering and Manufacturing T Level in Maintenance, Installation and Repair and Manufacturing, Processing and Control.

T Levels are new courses coming in September 2020, which will follow GCSEs and will be equivalent to three A Levels. They will combine classroom theory, practical learning and a 3-month industry placement with an employer to make sure students have real experience in the workplace.

The Post-16 Skills Plan sets out the Government’s vision to reform technical education by creating a technical education option that prepares individuals for skilled employment by developing the technical knowledge and skills needed by employers and industry.

Final outline content


This consultation is part of ongoing work to prepare for the launch of T Levels.

The consultation will be open until midnight on 7 January 2020.
