The T Level Transition Programme is being taught for the first time from September 2020.

This Framework for Delivery contains guidance for those providers taking part in its phased implementation. It sets out information and expectations for how the programme should be delivered from academic year 2020 to 2021.

In November 2020, we made a small number of operational updates to the Framework for Delivery. These are signposted in a summary page within the Framework. They include:

  • confirming that there is a new core aim for the T Level Transition Programme reflecting the T Level route that the student is preparing for
  • confirming that providers can determine what achievement is for recording the ILR outcome field for T Level Transition Programme students’ programme aim and core aim
  • confirming that T Level Transition Programme students won’t be included in the QARs for 2020 to 2021
  • signposting Departmental guidance on work experience for 16 to 19 study programmes in light of COVID-19

Future updates to the Framework will be made as and when required.
