Education and Training Foundation

Improving the quality of teaching and leadership in the Further Education and Training sector.

The Education and Training Foundation (ETF) is the workforce development body for the Further Education and Training sector. We work in partnership with others to deliver professional learning and development for teachers, trainers and leaders. We balance government priorities with sector needs to achieve our core charitable purpose to improve education and training for learners aged 14 and over.

The ETF believes that the key to improving education and training is to support teachers, trainers and leaders to excel. Everything we do is in pursuit of its vision of:   

  • highly effective, professionally confident teachers and trainers  
  • first class leadership of the sector
