II.1.3)Type of contract
As part of a T Level every student will undertake a mandatory industry placement in the occupational area they are studying towards. Quality industry placements are critical to the success of T Levels. The Government recognises that providers and employers will be expected to increase the availability of industry placements for a large proportion of young people as well as make the shift to offering longer, more substantial placements than the 1-2-week work experiences traditionally offered. T Level industry placements will be for a minimum of 315 hours and an average of 350 hours.
Following this, the good practice, together with information about where T Levels fit in the post-16 landscape (e.g. alongside apprenticeships, traineeships, etc.) should then be promoted through workshops, webinars, presentations either as standalone events or worked into existing employer or other relevant events. These events should involve an interactive element to support employers.
