The Institute is pleased to issue its invitation to tender (ITT) for the fourth wave of T Levels, which will be taught from September 2023 onwards.

We are calling on awarding organisations of all sizes to consider bidding for the eight new T Levels.

Successful awarding organisations will have the right to develop and then implement qualifications based on the outline content created by T Level panels. The T Level panels are employer-led groups who come together to detail the key knowledge and behaviours a student should learn as part of their technical qualification.

The bidding lots are as follows:

  • Lot 1 hair and beauty: hair, beauty and aesthetics
  • Lot 2 creative and design: craft and design
  • Lot 3 creative and design: media, broadcast and production 
  • Lot 4 catering and hospitality: catering
  • Lot 5 agriculture, environment and animal care: animal care and management 
  • Lot 6 agriculture, environment and animal care: agriculture, land management and production
  • Lot 7 legal, finance and accounting: legal services
  • Lot 8 business and administration: human resources

This is a two-stage process:

Awarding organisations have until 17 November 2020 to submit the selection questionnaire (SQ).

Those who are successful in stage 1 will be invited to complete stage 2 award questionnaire (AQ), the technical and pricing element of the bid on 1 December 2020.

The aim is to award contracts in August 2021, with first teaching in September 2023.
