Vocational and educational training

The ETF understands the principles behind strong vocational and educational training.  We understand that professional development of staff is key to delivering good quality VET.  To do this we:

  • help colleges and providers develop strong partnerships with employers
  • enable the co-design and co-delivery of vocational programmes that have a clear line of sight to work
  • develop dual professionals who can combine teaching and occupational expertise
  • build the capacity of leaders to build a responsive vocational offer that meets employers’ needs and the priorities of LEPs
  • facilitate growth in apprenticeships and delivery against the new trailblazer apprenticeship standards
  • provide CPD for apprenticeship and vocational staff to equip them to deliver the new apprenticeship standards
  • offer access to materials and resources to support leaders, those involved in governance, teachers and trainers to effectively utilise learning technologies.
