Our vision, purpose and goals

The Education and Training Foundation (ETF) works with teachers, trainers, leaders and employers to help them deliver excellent further and vocational education and training (VET).

The long term strategic goals to which ETF will contribute over the next 20 years are:

  • A strong, resilient and responsive FE and training system in England
  • A highly professional teaching and training workforce recognized as consistently good to outstanding by international standards.

Both of which are important for the UK’s long-term generational goals of:

  • A highly productive economy
  • An inclusive and educated society.
