Data on industry placement completion, core component grade and occupational specialism grade were supplied to the Department by providers and awarding organisations through the Manage T Level results service, approximately one week before T Level results day. As such, the Department is reliant on third party validation and quality assurance of this data at point of entry. Providers and awarding organisations are restricted to enter only valid result options for learners who have previously been registered and assigned an assessment entry, when submitting data. Error reports are generated in line with validation rules (detailed on the Manage T Level results service website here) following bulk data uploads. The Department carried out checks of the data to assess quality and found no notable issues.
This is the first year that T Level results are available, so it is not possible to compare the data with previous years for the purpose of quality assurance or time series analysis. In addition, T Levels have not fully rolled out yet, so the cohort is small, and inferences made from the data must be done so with caution.
Overall T Level grades are calculated by the Department from core component grades, occupational specialism grades and industry placement completion status, according to rules set out in the T Levels action plan. This process has been appropriately quality assured.
All results presented are provisional, as appeals may still be underway which could result in changes to some individual grades, and some partially achieving students are expected to complete their industry placement during summer 2022. Data are correct as of 8th August 2022. These statistics will be updated once finalised data is available towards the end of 2022.
The coverage of these statistics is different to Ofqual data on T Level Technical Qualification (TQ) results, which only includes data for learners expected to complete their T Level programme in 2022, who have completed both the core component and occupational specialism. These statistics contain data on learners that have completed at least one T Level component, so includes some learners that have not completed both the core component and occupational specialism. Results may also differ slightly due to differences in data processing and rounding, and the timing of data collection.
