The T Levels Capital Fund is available to support eligible further education providers delivering T Levels in September 2022.

The fund is formed of 2 parts:

  • the building and facilities improvement grant (BFIG) which providers will need to bid for
  • the Specialist Equipment Allocation (SEA) which will be awarded to providers using a formula allocation (provided they have not previously received funding for the particular route/s)

2020 and 2021 providers will also be able to bid for funding to support the delivery of the new T Level routes, or existing routes for which they have not previously received capital funding.
