Employer-Set Project introduction

The Employer-Set Project is an assessment made up of a number of tasks which will assess the knowledge and skills you have learnt as part of the ‘Core’ element of your T Level. Each project is developed together with employers in the industry to reflect realistic types of developments, activities and challenges.

The Employer-Set Project is a formal assessment that you will be marked and graded on. You will be marked on the quality and accuracy of the written work you produce. It is therefore important that you carry out your work to the highest standard you can.

How well you know and understand the subject, and how you have used your knowledge to complete the project must be clear to the marker. This means you should explain your thinking and how/why you have made your decisions within your written work e.g. as part of your planning, reflections, or evaluations.
