T Level providers across the country will benefit from a £110 million boost to upgrade buildings, invest in high quality equipment and boost teachers' skills.
Education Secretary, Gavin Williamson, said:
"T Levels will play a vital role in our drive to unlock talent and level up skills across the country.
This cash injection will make sure more T Level providers and their staff are ready to teach the new qualifications, so young people have access to the high-quality teaching, first class facilities and industry standard equipment they need to succeed."
The government is investing up to £95 million through the T Level Capital Fund so young people taking the new technical qualifications from 2021 will have access to industry standard equipment and high-quality facilities.
The fund will be delivered in two parts - from today, eligible providers can bid for funding to refurbish existing buildings or create new spaces, while funding for specialist equipment such as digital and audio-visual kit, will be allocated to all providers in Spring next year.
T Levels are high-quality technical alternatives to A Levels, combining classroom theory, practical learning and an industry placement to give students the skills they need to secure a great career.
