Petroc College has become the latest further education provider to be welcomed as a corporate partner of the Society for Education and Training (SET).
The agreement will see up to 300 teaching staff at the college become members of SET, the only professional membership body dedicated to teachers and trainers working in further education. The partnership, which began this month (January 2021), means staff will benefit from a valuable range of professional development opportunities including access to exclusive content, research, webinars, events and discounts.
Announcing the partnership, Petroc’s Director of HR & Organisational Development Sheena Murphy-Collett, said: “Investing in staff today, prepares your workforce for tomorrow. The SET membership will provide a hugely beneficial resource to staff and we are delighted to become a corporate partner.”
Martin Reid, Director of SET, added: “We are pleased to welcome Petroc as a corporate partner of the Society for Education and Training. We look forward to providing teaching staff with access to a host of CPD opportunities, expertise and resources, and helping them strive for excellence in their professional journey.”
As SET members, teaching staff at the college will enjoy benefits including:
- the opportunity to study for Qualified Teacher Learning and Skills (QTLS) and Advanced Teacher Status (ATS). SET is the only passport to achieving both QTLS and ATS
- access to resources, training and teaching tools, research and expert views in further education
discounts to CPD courses run by the ETF
- access to SET’s online FE/HE e-book library
- being part of the largest professional network of teachers and trainers in the further education sector, with opportunities to share expertise and experience with their peers
- receiving copies of inTuition, the leading journal for practitioners working across further education, vocational teaching and training
- entitlement to use SET’s membership grade designations after their names: Associate member (ASET), Member (MSET), or Fellow member (FSET), depending on the level of their teaching qualifications.
