Nearly all the students who dropped out of the second wave of T Levels switched to a course that is set to be scrapped through debated government plans. The exclusive data has sparked renewed calls for the Conservatives to abandon their proposals that involve defunding a host of level 3 qualifications in the next two years and for Labour to stand behind their commitment to “pause and review” the reforms. The DfE’s latest T Level action plan, published in April, confirmed reports that a third of students who started a T Level in 2021 left the programme early. A total 5,321 students enrolled in 2021 but only 3,510 completed. Of the third that withdrew, 370 did an apprenticeship, 716 transferred to another course and 682 left education. Click here for more.
