Nottingham College has been selected to be part of the second wave of UK colleges delivering new technical and vocational education by offering new T Levels in digital, health and science and education and childcare from September 2021.
Education Secretary Damian Hinds confirmed that 50 post-16 providers will begin rolling out phase 1 of the new programmes from September 2020.
T Levels will be high-quality technical alternatives to A Levels, combining classroom theory, practical learning and an industry placement of at least 45 days where students will build the knowledge and skills they need in a workplace environment.
Nottingham College Executive Director of Curriculum, Tom Dick said:
The College is pleased to have been chosen as one of the second phase colleges to offer T Levels. We are very much looking forward to delivering these new qualifications which will have such a positive impact on the lives of our future students.Tom Dick - Nottingham College Director of Curriculum
Education Secretary Damian Hinds said:
Everyone agrees that a radical shake-up of technical and vocational education in this country is long overdue. T-levels are our chance to do that – offering young people high-quality alternatives to our world-class A-levels from September 2020. The second wave of post-16 providers we have announced today demonstrates our commitment to making this happen. They will play an important role in ensuring more young people across the country can access these courses and help develop the skilled workforce the country needs for the future.Damian Hinds - Education Secretary
