IfL’s philosophy and values will continue to thrive
Since the announcement in the summer that IfL was to close and that its legacy should be passed to the Education and Training Foundation, we have been heartened by the warm words of support from so many of you.
During the online broadcast on the future of IfL’s legacy on 11 September (available to view at www.ifl .ac.uk), Dr Jean Kelly, IfL’s chief executive, pointed out that while this announcement has been sad news for some, the disappearance of the IfL name is not going to change the everyday practice and the good work of teachers and trainers.
The philosophy and values will continue through the recognition of eff ective professional development, the status of QTLS and the sense of ownership that so many teachers and trainers now take of their professional identity. That is the IfL legacy.
As we have said many times over the past few years, we believe it is vital that teachers and trainers take the opportunity to influence the formation of your future practitioner body. The Foundation will consult with members in the coming months on what you would like to see from your professional membership. Please do take the opportunity to have your say.
While this is your last edition of InTuition from IfL, it will not be your last InTuition. As the Education and Training Foundation takes on the IfL legacy in the coming weeks, you will continue to receive access to membership benefits,
including InTuition, and support.
You can find details of how to stay in touch with the Foundation on page 4. You can also continue to let us know your thoughts on this edition of InTuition by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for your continued support. Only with your contribution will the IfL legacy continue to have a positive impact for practitioners, and for teaching and learning, for many years to come.
On behalf of the whole IfL team, I wish you all the best for the future.
