The Society for Education and Training (SET) is welcoming teaching staff at Lambeth College in London as SET members after the college signed a new Corporate Partnership between the two organisations.
SET is the only professional membership body dedicated to teaching staff and trainers working in further education. The collaboration will see staff at Lambeth College being offered a valuable range of professional development opportunities.
Announcing the partnership, Fiona Morey, Lambeth College Principal, said:
“We are delighted to be working so closely with SET and for our teachers to be able to develop their professional practice through the opportunities offered by SET. This investment in our staff complements our desire to be at the cutting edge of evidence based practice and research, and links with the creation of our new Teaching and Learning Professional Development Centre.”
Martin Reid, Director of SET, said: “Everyone at the Society for Education and Training is proud to welcome onboard our latest corporate partner, Lambeth College. Corporate Partnership is a positive step that signals a provider’s commitment both to high-quality development for its staff and teaching for its students.
“This collaboration will see the Lambeth College teaching staff provided with access to a host of CPD opportunities, expertise and resources. It will also help them strive for excellence in their professional journey by enabling them to study for both Qualified Teacher Learning and Skills status and Advanced Teacher Status.”
As SET members, teaching staff at the college will enjoy benefits including:
Gavin Lumsden, Director of Education & Student Experience, talks to us about what to expect from his breakout session at SET24. He also offers advice for educators wanting to maximise their learners’ potential.
More than 27,000 practitioners have been awarded Qualified Teacher Learning and Skills (QTLS) status since it was first introduced in 2008. As QTLS status marks its fifteenth anniversary, applications for the current cohort remain open, closing on 30 November.
