The Education and Training Foundation (ETF) is the expert body for professional development and standards in Further Education and Training in England. Our role is to commission and deliver continuous professional development (CPD) for teachers, leaders and trainers to support government policy and meet sector needs. We have a charitable purpose to improve education and training for learners aged 14 and over.
We support the continuing transformation of our country’s technical and vocational education system by ensuring the sector has world-class teachers, trainers, assessors and leaders. This leads to ever-improving learner outcomes, a better skilled workforce and a stronger economy, country and society. The ETF believes that the key to improving education and training is to support teachers and their leaders to excel.
