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.
