Oral Answers to Questions — Education: T-levels

Mike Wood: What progress his Department has made on the introduction of T-levels.

 

Damian Hinds The Secretary of State for Education

We have made excellent progress and are working closely with the selected providers who will deliver the first three T-levels from 2020 in digital, education and childcare, and construction.

 

Mike Wood: My right hon. Friend will know that Dudley College of Technology has been selected to pilot all three of the strands of T-levels. Will he ensure that colleges receive the resources they need to deliver T-levels effectively and make a success of this fantastic initiative?

 

Damian Hinds The Secretary of State for Education

I will and, as my hon. Friend will be aware, we have committed significant extra resourcing for T-levels, and in the immediate term we are working closely with the 2020 providers, including in Dudley, to make sure they have the support they need.
