T-Levels live chat –

Karma were invited to take part in a live twitter chat discussing the introduction of a new educational course in which small businesses offer industry placements. Hosted by the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB), the Twitter chat featured 8 questions that explored the implications of the new T-Levels and the positive effects it will have for both students and businesses.

These 8 questions were answered by MP Anne Milton, who is the Minister of State for Skills and Apprenticeships, Anthony Impey MBE, the FSB Apprenticeships and Skills Policy Chair and Jon Gout, CEO of Karma.

Karma contributed the opinion and perspective of a small business planning to take part in the new T-Levels. The Twitter chat gave the public a way to ask any questions about the new course and better understand its purpose.

T-Levels are a new digital focused course created by employers that will offer students an alternative to apprenticeships. T- Levels offer an opportunity for students to put their classroom learning into practice and gain hands on experience. Doing this allows students to further develop their digital skills whilst learning and increases their employability. By offering industry placements as part of the

course, employers and small businesses aim to cultivate the next generation. T-Levels, businesses have the opportunity to find potential employees with little to no risk. It also gives businesses the opportunity to give back to the local community and build ties with local colleges and schools. T-Levels will rely heavily on small businesses in order to succeed.

The first T-Levels are projected to begin in 2020 and will initially include Digital, education and childcare and construction. However, there are plans to expand the number of sectors by 2023.
