Recognising FE professionals


Almost without notice at the end of last month, the Government slipped out its new Further Education Workforce Strategy. For those interested you can read a copy here.
In essence the report charges the new Education and Training Foundation with doing the following: define and promote professionalism in the sector; maintain and develop occupational standards for the workforce; ensure the availability, scope and quality of initial teacher training; provide resources and support to improve teaching, learning and assessment; develop a national Vocational Education and Training (VET) Centre to support research, development and innovation, focused on vocational pedagogy and development of VET more widely; and enable the development and updating of workforce skills and knowledge in technical, occupational, vocational and subject areas.
