Colin Baines, Head of Technical Skills and Development at The University of Manchester

“T-Levels are a fantastic addition to our programme of activities around early career recruitment. This new qualification gives our university valuable exposure to young, talented individuals, who may be interested in our technical workforce.

These students offer a fresh perspective, innovative ideas, diverse skills, and provide the opportunity to make positive change to our workforce. We also offer exemplary pastoral support and focussed training packages, ensuring every young person receives the opportunity to explore the world of work in a supportive environment. On completion of their industry placement students will have developed transferable skills that make a positive contribution to their future career.

Parents should be reassured that their child will gain vital skills focussing on their chosen specialism as well as other sectors. Each placement will provide a tailored learning journey, from onboarding through to embedding skills, certificated training, and networking.”
