The Education and Training Foundation (ETF) is the sector-led, government-backed workforce development body for the Further Education and Training Sector.
Our mission is to support the continuing transformation of our country's technical and vocational education system by ensuring the sector has world-class teachers, trainers, assessors and leaders. This leads to ever-improving learner outcomes, a better skilled workforce and a stronger economy, country and society.
We can do this by improving, driving and championing the quality of the sector's leadership, teaching and training through:
- Setting and promoting Professional Standards, awarding Qualified Teacher Learning and Skills (QTLS) and Advanced Teacher Status (ATS), and managing the Society for Education and Training (SET), the professional membership body for the sector.
- Supporting the sector through reform and change.
- Leading professional and workforce development for teachers, trainers, assessors, leaders and governors.
- Being the home of independent, impartial and comprehensive workforce data and research.
