T Level Draft Qualification Specifications

As part of our ongoing work to support your preparations for delivery, we are pleased to be able to share with you our draft Technical Qualification specifications for our Digital, and Healthand Science T Levels.

These materials contain details of all of the components and assessments required to complete the qualification and deliver high quality outcomes for your T Level learners.

Please be aware, these materials are currently in draft format and subject to change. We will continue to share any developments to these specifications throughout the approval process.

The Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education (the Institute) awarded contracts for the second wave of T Level Technical Qualifications (TQs) in October 2019, and these will be taught from September 2021. Each TQ will be subject to Approval by the Institute (as required by the Apprenticeship, Skills, Children and Learning Act 2009).

These qualifications are going through a robust development process and have not yet been Approved by the Institute. Awarding Organisations (AOs) continue to engage with Providers as part of the development process. This may include sharing drafts of the Technical Qualification Specification and/or Specimen Assessment Materials.

Providers should be aware that these documents are likely to change as work between the Institute and AOs continues at depth and pace. These materials are being shared with Eligible Providers solely for information purposes to ensure as much visibility as possible during the development period. Pending approval by the Institute and accreditation by Ofqual, materials are expected to be shared with Providers in December 2020.
