inTuition 27 - spring 2017

SET membership is better value than ever 

I’m very pleased to welcome you to the second new-look inTuition since we relaunched our membership magazine in December 2016. We have been thrilled with the positive response we’ve had since then, with many people citing inTuition as a principal reason for joining the Society for Education and Training (SET).

The Spring issue brings you even more excellent content, in particular our annual inTuition Research Supplement. We are about to enter a very busy period for the SET team as our annual renewals opened on 6 March.

We think SET membership represents better value than ever. In addition to your excellent membership journal (the most widely read in the post-16 sector), from the start of April members will have access to thousands of research journals, eBooks, and dedicated leadership and management materials through a partnership with the world-leading EBSCO platform. We are also expanding our networks of support for members.

We are launching a SET mentoring service, including both exclusive online eLearning built for SET members, and a network for our members to ofer and seek mentoring support to and from each other as part of their professional development. Our local networks are also launching in a range of new areas across England, led by members for their local colleagues. All this in addition to our regular webinars, online forums, articles and blogs.

And across all our benefits, we are ofering more guidance and information to help you progress your career. Returning to this issue of inTuition, the 16-page Research Supplement opens a window on the world of research relevant to members. It ofers a range of practical, informative and, hopefully, inspiring articles curated for us by SET Fellow Gail Lydon and her team. Particular highlights include a piece from government ‘behaviour tsar’ Tom Bennett, author of The Behaviour Guru, on practical approaches to managing challenging learners.

We also have an article from American academics Megan Smith and Yana Weinstein on research-informed strategies to help you improve learning. You will find more research inside your spring issue of inTuition. This issue also features an exclusive interview with Professor Alison Wolf, the academic whose recent work is helping to reshape the purpose and structure of further education and training.

We very much welcome your feedback on inTuition. Please feel free to contact us at
