First T Level subjects revealed

The education secretary, Justine Greening, has announced the first three new T Levels which are set to be introduced in 2020.

Education and childcare, construction and digital are the first subjects to be put forward. The rest of the subjects are set to be available by 2022.

The new vocational qualifications will be supported by funding worth £60 million in 2018-19, rising to £445 million in 2021-22, and eventually to “over £500 million” a year, Tes has reported.

A small number of providers will offer the first three qualifications from 2020, and all pathways from the first six “priority routes” will be delivered by selected providers the following year.

By 2024, there will be further expansion so that the “vast majority” of providers will offer T Levels.
