With only two years to go until T Levels become part of the education curriculum, new research published by City & Guilds and AELP reveals that just 17% of UK employers feel that they have a good understanding of the new qualifications, with almost half (49%) rating their understanding as poor.  Under T Levels, there will need to be a significant increase in the number of work placement students employers take, with an estimated 180,000 placements needed per year.  Encouragingly, most employers show support for this valuable part of the new qualification, with almost three quarters (74%) of those surveyed saying they are willing to play a greater role in helping students apply their learning in the workplace setting. However, both employers and training providers express concerns around the implementation of the work placements.  See the accompanying documents for the detailed findings.
