Becoming a T Level Ambassador


GMI Construction

The Responsible Business Partners have joined Claire Preston in becoming a T Level Ambassador on behalf of the Department of Education (DoE).  The T Level Ambassador Network helps build T Level understanding and engagement in the business community and GMI have joined over 200 members who are advocates for technical education and have a key role in bringing industry and education together.

We have joined along with giants such as Fujitsu, DPD UK and Amazon. By using our influence and personal connections with T Levels, the Responsible Business Team will encourage other employers and young people to take advantage of the opportunities T Levels, and more broadly technical education, can offer.

GMI currently are currently hosting 11 T Level Placements and have recently collaborated with DLA Architects who are the designers behind the Hyatt Hotel. The two T Level placements will join DLA in June for four weeks learning about the design of the Hyatt and then spend five weeks with us on site – this is true collaboration between our design team and GMI and something the Department of Education picked up on having completed a case study on this partnership.

T Levels: What are they?

T Levels are new 2-year courses which are taken after GCSEs and are broadly equivalent in size to 3 A Levels. Launched in September 2020, these courses have been developed in collaboration with employers and education providers so that the content meets the needs of industry and prepares students for entry into skilled employment, an apprenticeship or related technical study through further or higher education.

T Levels offer students practical and knowledge-based learning at a school or college and on-the-job experience through an industry placement of at least 315 hours – approximately 45 days.
