We support teachers and leaders across the Further Education and Training sector to help them achieve their professional development goals for the benefit of learners and employers across England. In doing so, we help to transform the lives of individuals and communities across the country, unleashing potential and benefitting the economy.
Our work has three key principles at its heart:
- The first is that we exist for the benefit of learners, something we achieve by improving the professional practice of teachers and leaders in the sector.
- The second is that we exist as a means to an end, not an end in itself. We have no shareholders and make no profit. Everything we do is about helping our fantastic sector unlock the talents and potential of our learners and improving productivity, employability, skills and educational attainment.
- And the third is that we exist to support professionals to be even better than they already are, identifying excellence and seeking to understand and disseminate it through collaborative practice. Although our work focuses on FE and Training, we bring in expert challenge and support from outside the sector.
