The Skills and Education Group, Association of Colleges and Creative Education are delighted to be working in partnership with the Education and Training Foundation to deliver part of this exciting offer through Regional Knowledge Hubs.

The Knowledge Hubs will embed learning and teaching practice through teacher development networks and collaborative activities focused on T Level routes, pathways and subject specific themes. Employers and professional bodies will also be engaged to ensure that learning and practice reflects industry needs.

The Knowledge Hubs will provide an opportunity for 2020, 2021 and future T Level providers to participate in sector led, collaborative action research projects, known as Teacher Regional Improvement Projects (TRIPs). TRIPs aim to improve teaching practice in preparation for T Levels and ultimately ensure that learners undertaking T Levels develop the knowledge, skills, behaviours and occupational competencies required. Grants of £45,000 will be awarded to 50 collaborative TRIPs across England.
