Lloyds Banking Group journey with T-levels and celebrations

In 2022, Lloyds Banking Group initiated T Level work placements, starting with 6 students and scaling up to 70 placements in 2023, with plans to exceed 100 placements in 2024.

T Levels, equivalent to three A-levels, offer practical skills, valuable experience, and important interpersonal skills through a 45-day industry placement. These placements are not only beneficial for students but also advantageous for employers, providing early access to a talent pipeline and fostering innovation.

Approximately 50% of students who successfully complete a placement at Lloyds Banking Group are offered apprenticeship roles upon T Level qualification completion, establishing a true talent pipeline. This initiative significantly contributes to driving digital skills, particularly as we navigate a significant transformation journey in the coming years. With 60% of students from Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic backgrounds, this approach aligns with our diversity agenda, aiming for our workforce to reflect a true version of society.
