The Education and Training Foundation (ETF), established in October 2013, is the government-backed, sector-owned national support body for the Further Education and Training sector. We are a registered charity.
We are the guardian of the Professional Standards for the sector. Our professional membership body, the Society for Education and Training (SET), has around 20,000 members, making it the largest professional membership organisation for practitioners in the post-16 sector. The ETF through SET remains the only body which confers Qualified Teaching Learning and Skills (QTLS) status and Advanced Teacher Status (ATS).
We take a considered, evidence-based and sector–inclusive approach to the Continuous Professional Development (CPD) support that we give to the sector. Our extensive research with the sector, including its training needs, is the foundation that underpins what we deliver. This is the “ETF Way”
In developing our programmes and initiatives, we work in partnership with our SET members, sector expert panels, employers and key bodies. These include the Association of Colleges (AoC), Association of Employment and Learning Providers (AELP), Association of Adult Education and Training Organisations (AAETO), trade unions as well as a range of government departments including the Department for Education (DfE).
A registered charity the Foundation received charitable status on 19 September 2013, and you can view our registration certificate (registration no: 1153859) . Operating as a charity ensures that the Foundation provides the greatest benefit to the professionals we aim to support. Our established charitable objectives place improving the quality of learning through empowering the professionals of the sector at the core of the Foundation’s operations.
@E_T_Foundation Enhance Digital Teaching Platform #DigitalETF has been recognised as one of the 50 People, Products and Projects shaping the education and technology sector across the UK with an EdTech50 2020 award.
Teachers, trainers and assessors at The Learning Enterprise, Virgin Care’s training and development arm, are being welcomed as members of the Society for Education and Training (SET) thanks to a new Corporate Partnership. The partnership marks an exciting collaboration between the organisations, offering a valuable range of professional development opportunities for college staff. SET is the only professional membership body dedicated to teachers and trainers working in Further Education (FE).
A new programme of online training and community support has been launched today by @E_T_Foundation to support teachers and trainers who will be delivering courses related to the new legal digital entitlement. This will fund all adults with no or low digital skills to study on specified qualifications free of charge – initially essential digital skills qualifications from 2020 and then new digital Functional Skills Qualifications from 2021. The programme to help prepare staff is being run by the Education and Training Foundation (ETF) with funding from the Department for Education.
With the SET for Teaching Success programme, everyone’s a winner – the individuals who are helped to forge new careers in technical teaching are supported into new employment, the provider institutions they work in secure new expert staff in hard-to-recruit-for subjects, and the students they teach are inspired by people with industry experience and expertise.
The Education and Training Foundation (ETF) has launched a new approach to recognising achievement on the Enhance Digital Teaching Platform. The digital teaching solution is designed to help develop teaching and training practice using technology across the Further Education (FE) and Training sector.
