The Institution of Agricultural Engineers (IAgrE) invites you to a forum to explain the recent shake-up in education and what this means for the Landbased sector. The event draws together a panel of experts to explain what T-Levels are, how they work and what this means for employers, students and colleges.
The T-Level in Land-based Engineering will become the new vocational course for those wishing to study full time in college from 2023. T-Levels are 2 year courses, equivalent to 3 A-levels and will eventually replace the National Diplomas in England. As an alternative to apprenticeships and A-Levels, the T-Level will give learners a pathway into the industry or higher education, and includes a 45 day industry placement.
This event will be of interest to both employers and training providers, industry and educational experts will give an overview of the background to the qualification, the content it will cover and the different pathways and routes the young person can take once completed.
