Fund title: T Levels Capital Fund

Focus of fund/fund aims:

Capital grants to support FE colleges and other eligible providers to deliver T Levels as part of the curriculum

Application deadline:

26 March 2021

Fund description:

The T Levels Capital Fund is available to support eligible further education providers delivering T Levels in September 2022. T Levels are new technical study programmes that will sit alongside apprenticeships within a skills training system.

The fund is formed of two parts:

  • Building and Facilities Improvement Grant (BFIG) which providers will need to bid for
  • Specialist Equipment Allocation (SEA) which will be awarded to providers using a formula allocation

BFIG funding is available to support T Level delivery beginning in 2022/23 for route/s that providers have not previously received capital funding for. To bid for the grants, providers will need to show that there is a pressing need for capital funding to support the delivery of T Levels. For example, buildings that are in poor condition and unsuitable for delivering T Levels. Projects should also demonstrate good value for money.

Eligible applicants must be a provider on the DfE’s list of Providers selected to deliver T Levels: in Devon these are Exeter College, Petroc and South Devon College as well as City College Plymouth.

Grants of between £200,000 and £1,400,000 are available (depending on which T Level route is being applied for).
