Telford College becomes an ETF/SET Corporate Partner

We are delighted to share that staff at Telford College have become members of the Society for Education and Training (SET), the only professional membership body dedicated to teachers and trainers working in Further Education (FE), thanks to their new Corporate Partnership.

The partnership between Telford College and SET/ETF which began in April 2023 means 150 staff will be supported to increase their professionalism through their SET membership, and benefit from a valuable range of professional development opportunities, exclusive content, research, webinars, events, and discounts.

In addition, the organisation will benefit from having an ongoing relationship with the ETF via a dedicated Regional Relationship Manager who will support them in creating a development plan in line with the organisation’s aims. This will enable access to a report summarising staff’s self-assessments and benchmarking against national averages and the raw data.

Announcing the partnership, Caroline Bastow of Telford College said:

“We have made great strides in investing in the professional development of our staff and are delighted to join the Society for Education and Training as a Corporate Partner. We recognise that supporting our staff to be the best they can will have the greatest impact in providing a high-quality learning experience for our students. The partnership will provide the College with a wealth of resources to support the professionalism within the profession and we look forward to being key members of the communities of practice.”

Among a range of benefits, being an ETF/SET Corporate Partner supports teaching staff at the organisation to maximize the effectiveness of their membership, support to evaluate and improve the standards of teaching within the organisation, guidance on maximising the impact of the Corporate Partnership and the chance to take part in a Professional Standards workshop.

Dr Katerina Kolyva, Chief Executive Officer (CEO), the Education and Training Foundation said:

“We are delighted to welcome Telford College as an ETF/SET Corporate Partner.

Corporate Partnership enhances professionalism and development for your staff. It provides teaching staff with access to a variety of resources including reflecting and embedding our Professional Standards for Teachers and Trainers into your everyday practice as well as CPD opportunities, including enabling them to study for both Qualified Teacher Learning and Skills (QTLS) and Advanced Teacher Status (ATS). We look forward to supporting our new members in striving for excellence in their professional journey.”
