T Level approval window – a reminder

The approval window is now open and closes on 28 June 2024. If you’re planning to deliver additional NCFE T Level qualifications in September 2024, you’ll need to apply for additional product approval with us via our website before you can start delivering them. Please note that if your college has multiple campuses, you’ll need to apply for approval for each campus to deliver these additional qualifications. Similarly, if your academy is part of a Multi Academy Trust, each academy will require separate approval. If you need support with applying for approval, please watch this handy video.  

Updates to qualification materials for T Levels

Following our annual review, new copies of the qualification specifications and updated versions of the sample assessment materials for certain T Level qualifications are now available. You must download these new qualification specifications ahead of teaching from September 2024, as summer 2025 assessments for new students will be based on the new specifications.  Find out more.
