The Education and Training Foundation (ETF), supported by the Department for Education, have launched a major national exercise in finding out what teachers, trainers, leaders and institutions across the Further Education (FE) and Training sector see as their training needs.
Conducted by ETF, working in partnership with the Association of Colleges (AoC), the Association of Employment and Learning Providers (AELP) and by the Holex network of adult education and training organisations, it will be the first time the sector has undertaken such systematic research at this scale.
The survey aims to help ETF and the further education and training sector as a whole to get a better understanding of the training and development needs of all the sector's leaders, managers, teachers and staff. Through two surveys, telephone and online, the data will be used to inform future priorities for the ETF, sector bodies and the government as well as inform discussions with devolved authorities, individual training providers, and employers.
The survey can be found at www.etftrainingsurvey.co.uk
