T Levels update (details to follow)

T Levels: what do they mean for communications, marketing and admissions?

As has been seen in the education press over the last month or so, this is a critical time for how T Levels are being viewed by the wider world.

 From schools and colleges  “missing” recruitment targets to some Russell Group Universities coming out to say they “will not accept” them – it is a turbulent time for all providers.

In this session we will be exploring the challenges and opportunities presented by these “still in development” qualifications. We will look at the ‘Strategic’ Challenges for Success for providers which need to be in place or at least acknowledged. And we will explore the communication implications of T Levels – whether your college is providing them or not.

By the end of the session, we aim to have provided you with a better understanding of how to navigate these tricky waters, and be better prepared to deal with T Levels – either as a T Level provider or as a college facing tough competition for students.
