A unique offering for teachers and trainers in our vibrant sector
InTuition is unique – exclusive in its focus on teachers and trainers working in the diverse and vibrant sector that is further education and training. This issue of the magazine may look a little different. It is the first edition under the ownership of the Education and Training Foundation and we have included news and features about our existing programmes and support work for practitioners, which we hope you will find useful. Future editions will also include Foundation news, but less so than in this first edition. I hope you will find that all your favourite content is still here: news from across the sector; the latest research updates; opinion pieces and features; and, of course, Geoff Petty, who discusses the benefits of ‘spaced learning’ as a way to encourage learners to retain information more effectively. Our ambition for the magazine is simply to be the No 1 professional journal for education and training practitioners. It should be written primarily by teachers and trainers, for teachers and trainers. It will combine sector news with latest educational research and exciting practical developments and ideas in education and training. We will also use it to make professional members aware of support and development opportunities from the Foundation and others. Finally, I would also like to say a big thank you to the 3,000 of you who took the time and effort to respond to the first stages of our consultation on what our new membership service should cover (see page 12). We are determined to build a service shaped by you, that reflects your needs, helps you to build your career and enables you to network with your peers to share knowledge and debate the issues that exercise you as teachers and trainers.
You have given us plenty to think about, and we are working hard behind the scenes to build a membership service you will feel proud to be a part of.
CEO, Education and Training Foundation
