Welcome to the website of the Education and Training Foundation (ETF). We support teachers and leaders across the Further Education and Training sector to help them achieve their professional development goals for the benefit of learners and employers across England. In doing so, we help to transform the lives of individuals and communities across the country, unleashing potential and benefitting the economy.
Our work has three key principles at its heart:
We have a strong relationship with the Department for Education, which recognises our unique expertise and funds many of the programmes we deliver. That support ranges from leadership development through to maths and English enhancement, to Prevent training and digital teaching skills. We also manage professional networks, support recruitment into the sector and provide key data and research.
We are also the guardian of the sector’s Professional Standards and home to the professional membership body for the sector, the Society for Education and Training, whose 20,000 plus members we support. SET is responsible for the awarding of both Qualified Teaching Learning and Skills (QTLS) status and Advanced Teacher Status (ATS).
If you are interested in our work, I encourage you to explore this site and get in touch with us. We’d be delighted to continue the conversation with you.
