1.Cost Effective Recruitment
T Levels offer a fantastic cost-effective alternative to recruitment and can improve the recruitment pipeline for your business. T Levels are a great way to get new skills into your organisation and shape new talent to meet skills gaps and business needs.
In addition, T Level industry placements are about providing students with high-quality, meaningful training, not work. Therefore, students on an industry placement are not entitled to a salary because the placement is a requirement of their study program.
2. T Levels are designed by Employers for Employers
T Levels have been created by employers and approved by the Institute for Apprenticeships and Education. A T Level is a sign that a young person has not only the technical knowledge right for your business, but also the practical experience of the work environment that will make them a great employee.
3. T Level Placements can be Flexible
Bridgwater & Taunton College works closely with local, regional and national employers to ensure we match the right student with the right placement. Placements can be a block, day release or a mixture. They can even be shared between employers, opening up opportunities for small and large employers alike to grow their own employees of the future.
4. Value and reward for existing employees
Taking on an T Level student can free up your existing workforce to do what they do best, whilst at the same time having the opportunity to pass on their skills and experience to the next generation of employees. As a result, existing staff can gain new management and mentoring skills, leaving them feeling valued, challenged and developed.
5. Meeting your social responsibility
Every employer has a wider responsibility to their local community and society. By taking on an T Level student you will be:
- Increasing the life chances of young people and boosting the economy.
- Demonstrating that as a business you are socially responsible, and raising the business’s community profile.
- Helping to tackle unemployment in the local area, and creating a more diverse workforce.
- Supporting the UK’s strategy to help young people into employment.
