On the 29th September, Linking London held the first T Level Practitioner Group of the academic year and was well represented with FE and HE partners present.

After a warm welcome from the chair Sultan Soukani, Assistant Principal at HCUC, delegates heard first from Suzanne Hall, Head of Sector Development: Technical and Professional at Pearson presented to the group on T Level developments including the DfE timeline for rollout and a full overview of the summer T Level results. 

This was followed by updates from the Education and Training Foundation, Oliver Knight provided a summary of the ETF offer for T Level delivery providers (T Level Professional Development – TLPD). A college and university partner update then followed where college partners shared information on delivering and planning to deliver T Levels and universities shared information regarding admissions arrangements and outreach support. 

After a short break, we heard from Amelia Brennan, Senior Policy Advisor, DfE  who gave an overview of DfE's T Level work including the progression from cohort one into higher education, how they have supported universities so far, support for Autumn 2022 and beyond and key challenges. Caroline Henbry from the NCFE gave short update on their next steps following the summer core component results in T Levels. 

Following this, we heard from Jakub Kowalewski, Partnership Officer at Linking London who presented the key findings from the Linking London mapping of T Level HE entry including the T Level acceptance by T level and courses, the potential problems and good practise.
