T Level industry placements-£1000 Incentive

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

10 June 2021


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
