£1000 cash boost for employers to support T Level industry placements

May 27, 2021

We are delighted to announce that employers will be able to claim £1000 for every T Level student they host on a high-quality industry placement, as part of a new incentive scheme https://www.gov.uk/government/news/cash-boost-for-t-levels

The T Level employer incentive fund, launched today, recognises  the impact of the pandemic on many businesses, and has been designed to help cover financial constraints employers may face as a barrier to hosting placements in the short term.

Employers will be able to claim £1000 for up to 20 students they host on a 45 day (315 hour) industry placement, from now until July 2022. The incentive offers businesses an excellent opportunity to tap into the emerging talent pipeline, whilst supporting the skilled workforce of the future. 

Those interested in accessing the incentive payments and offering T Level industry placements should contact: 08000 150 600 (choose option 4) or fill out an industry placement contact form online: Next steps | T Levels

We are also pleased to share our new Employer Guide to help businesses understand how to host an industry placement. This includes details on what is expected of employers during the placement. Please do share this with your networks too.

Also announced, a procurement exercise, of up to £350,000, for an Employer Support Package, will taking place in the summer, for an organisation to offer employers T Levels support. Such support will include delivering webinars, and support sessions across England.
