City & Guilds and EAL to deliver all three routes in engineering and manufacturing

24 November, 2020

City & Guilds in collaboration with specialist engineering awarding organisation EAL, have been awarded the contracts to deliver three engineering and manufacturing T Levels, following a tender process. This is following the success of City & Guilds’ and EAL’s partnership to deliver construction qualifications in Wales and the T Level in Construction: Building Services Engineering last year. They are: Engineering and Manufacturing: Manufacturing, Processing and Control, Engineering and Manufacturing: Maintenance, Installation and Repair, and Engineering and Manufacturing: Design and Development.

In addition, City & Guilds has been awarded the contract to deliver a T Level in Business and Administration: Management and Administration. The introduction of T levels forms a major shift in the provision of technical education for students post 16 in England, offering an alternative to A Levels and apprenticeships.

David Phillips, managing director – City & Guilds, says: “We are absolutely honoured to have been awarded the contracts to deliver three engineering and manufacturing T Levels and the business and administration T Level. These qualifications will help shape the lives of many young people by giving them a great start in their careers.

“We are looking forward to collaborating once again with EAL to deliver qualifications in the engineering sector following our  successful partnership in the construction sector. We are also hugely excited to develop the Business and Administration T Level using the experience and expertise in our leadership and management business ILM.”

“As the next generation enters the workforce, they will be facing unprecedented challenges as well as new opportunities and we are honoured to get the opportunity to take on a larger role helping to equip these learners with the skills they will need to flourish in their careers.”

Reshaping the skills landscape

Alison Parkes, managing director of EAL, adds: “We are delighted to have been awarded the engineering and manufacturing T Levels in partnership with City & Guilds. Bringing our understanding and expertise in the engineering sector, we are immensely proud to be able to continue to reshape the skills landscape.

“Our mission is to build on last year’s successes to collaborate with Central Government, senior industry leaders and employers to spearhead creating the best skills development solutions for the future.” “Engineering is one of the most critical industries underpinning the country’s economy and infrastructure development and we appreciate the significant role we have to play in ensuring employers are able to secure workers with these skills, as well as ensuring learners are well equipped to embark on careers in this sector.”

EAL is the specialist skills partner and awarding organisation for the engineering and manufacturing industry. Its industry expertise coupled with its commitment to quality and unrivalled service levels make it the perfect partnership for City & Guilds.

Engineering has formed a core part of the City & Guilds offer over the past 140 years leaving the business ideally placed to play a bigger role in creating the skills the UK economy needs to prosper in the future. Since the creation of City & Guilds at the time of the second industrial revolution, our purpose has been to help people, organisations and economies develop their skills to grow.

The four T Level qualifications will form part of the third wave of T Levels, which go live in 2022. These complement City & Guilds/EAL existing T Level partnership, for Construction: On-site Construction and Building Services Engineering, currently under development and due to go live in September 2021.
