David Russell, CEO of the Education and Training Foundation (ETF)
The SET website is a key component of our membership offer and we hope it will become your first port of call for everything related to your professional membership. With almost 20,000 members and growing rapidly, we are proud that 87 per cent of SET members would recommend membership to a friend.
As the professional body dedicated to professionals working across further education, vocational teaching and training, we have designed the website to make it easy for you to use and navigate so you can access the latest news, teaching tools, research and expert views in further education to help you take ownership of your career development.
We have a growing online and face-to-face community where you can discuss and share effective practice around current issues affecting the sector. We also offer a series of live and on-demand webinars and webchats, along with online content and the opportunity for members to contribute in the form of guest blogs and articles.
Making sure you get the professional recognition you deserve
When the Education and Training Foundation (ETF) took on the legacy of the Institute for Learning in November 2014 it was clear that to be successful we needed to build a professional membership service that was shaped by, and responsive to, its members.
As part of this process we run regular consultations with our members to ensure we can support you to be an even better teacher or trainer. It is your answers, thoughts and comments that have shaped SET, from our name and mission, to the changes we have made, and will continue to make, to develop and improve the membership service.
I am proud of the work that has been achieved so far, but it is only the beginning. We promise to continue talking and listening to you to improve our membership offer. We understand that to be the best means we need to continuously develop, innovate and grow to provide you with the professional membership service you deserve.
