NFEC Online Seminars "Where do we go from here?"

Friday 23rd April 2021

Topic T Level Technical Certificate developments and Work Experience Placements

An excellent and well attended seminar heard the latest update on T Levels from Rob Stott and Scott Wilkins representing the relevant Awarding Bodies, City & Guilds and EAL on the continuing development of the Technical Certificate elements - the posted presentation the Abs on going efforts are much appreciated by NFEC members although there are still issues relating to size and specialist content of the Engineering and Manufacturing T Level. Please view Engineering & Manufacturing T Level Update Slides

Lynne Tabone from ESFA presented a summary of the T Level structure which covered the requirements for the Work Placement element. Lynne's presentation is available here: Industry Placements - Lynne Tabone, Education & Skills Funding Agency

Panel Members: Neil Sambrook, Walsall College and Jamie Binyon, Chichester College presented on the live issues that they are dealing with in their establishing placements in Construction; Sue Hopewell and Neil Davies from Birmingham Metropolitan College discussed their preparations and resource planning for their introduction of T Levels in Engineering and manufacturing. John Symonds, BMW brought an understanding of the issues that large companies have to consider when planning for any form of placement.

The Q & A and general discussion a long list of ideas, anomalies, concerns and suggestions which will feature in future NFEC T Level seminars.

It is most likely that this topic will be the subject of the next NFEC Seminar on 21st May 2021.
