£1000 cash boost for employers to support T Level industry placements
Department for Education announces that employers will be able to claim £1000 for every T Level student they host on a high-quality industry placement, as part of a new incentive scheme.
The T Level employer incentive fund, recognises the impact of the pandemic on many businesses, and has been designed to help cover financial constraints employers may face as a barrier to hosting placements in the short term.
Employers will be able to claim £1000 for up to 20 students they host on a 45 day (315 hour) industry placement until July 2022. The incentive offers businesses an excellent opportunity to tap into the emerging talent pipeline, whilst supporting the skilled workforce of the future.

Business support through cash boost to support T level placements
The incentive offers businesses an excellent opportunity to tap into the emerging talent pipeline, whilst supporting the skilled workforce of the future. You are under no obligation to pay students but can choose to do so if they wish. This is because T Level industry placements are about providing students with high quality, meaningful training, not work.
