The Employer-Set Project (ESP) samples knowledge drawn from across the core content in relation to the specific project version context. It is an assessment that is externally set and externally marked by City & Guilds appointed markers and is made up of several tasks that will take place within controlled conditions, assessing the knowledge and skills learned as part of the core element of the T Level.

The project is made up of a number of tasks which all relate to the same Employer-set project brief:

  • Research
  • Report
  • Project plan
  • Presentation
  • Collaborative problem-solving
  • Evaluation

The project draws on the content from the core knowledge that sits across all specialisms in BSE (specific knowledge and skills for each specialism will be assessed in the practical assignments as part of the Occupational Specialism assessment).

Core content covered in the Employer-set project:

  • Health and safety
  • Construction design principles
  • Sustainability principles
  • Building services engineering (BSE) systems

The project is linked to the core skills:

  • Problem solving
  • Research
  • Communication
  • Working collaboratively with others
