Changes to maths and English in T Levels

Education Secretary Nadhim Zahawi has announced that the maths and English qualification exit requirements for T Levels will be removed.

The relaxations have been made to make T Levels more accessible  and to encourage more students to take them.

Mr. Zahawi made the announcement during the Second Reading of the Skills and Post-16 Education Bill. He also stated that the Government’s level 3 reform timetable would be extended by a year, meaning no funding will be removed from qualifications overlapping with T Levels until 2024 at the earliest. Though this was welcomed, many MPs felt the extension did not go far enough. During the debate many MPs spoke in favour of retaining high quality Applied General and BTEC qualifications.
