“We are delighted to have been selected as a key provider to launch the second wave of T Levels, which will bring significant benefits to our students and employer partners.

“We are very much looking forward to playing a key role in transforming technical education across the country and supporting our students in gaining the essential skills and knowledge required by industry.”
