This consultation is concerned with how funding will be distributed to providers from the 2020/21 academic year for the delivery of T Levels for 16 to 19 year olds.  It includes indicative funding rates and the related funding policy considerations, and we are seeking views on our proposals.

Information about our proposals can be found alongside each consultation question to help you complete it. However, before you answer the questions, please read the consultation document below as it includes additional information you will need in order to provide a full response.

Title of event:  T Level Funding Explained: WEBINAR 

Department for Education and Education and Skills Funding Agency hosted a live webinar to explain the government’s proposals for how T Levels will be funded. The webinar consisted of a presentation and a question and answer session. 

Date event took place: Tuesday 5th February


Why your views matter

The government recognises that the additional taught hours and industry placement requirements for T Levels will mean that they cost more to deliver than current programmes. Additional funding, rising to £500 million a year, is available to meet these additional costs.  This consultation sets out proposals for distributing this funding effectively between providers, building on the existing 16 to 19 funding arrangements.

What happens next

This consultation has now closed.  The responses will be analysed and the Government will then publish a report summarising the responses, setting out our analysis of what they mean, and indicating what action the Government intends to take as a consequence.
