Technical Distinction: T Levels for the Next Generation of Talent

Do you want to be part of a pilot scheme to ensure new technical digital training is fit for and integrated into the workplace?  

How can you help? 

Provide a 45 day industry placement for a student in their 2nd year of study to put into practice their new practical and technical skills and help us develop essential case studies to promote how technical training is being showcased and supported in the workplace across Greater Manchester to report back to central government. 

Placements can be in a block or spread out over the year - whatever suits your business and current projects/workflow best.
