As the expert body for professional development and standards in Further Education across England, the Education and Training Foundation’s (ETF) role is to design, develop and deliver Continuing Professional Development (CPD) for teachers, leaders, and trainers to support government policy and meet sector needs.
SQW were commissioned by ETF to undertake an independent review of ETF’s impact in the year 2019-2020. The report built on the ETF’s public benefit report, which provided an account of the range and scale of ETF activities that support governors, leaders, managers, teachers and trainers in the FE and Training sector. The impact report developed these themes further by drawing together evidence of the impact of this collective activity, on professional practice, organisational development and learner outcomes.
SQW delivered a comprehensive analysis of 22 ETF programmes. The evidence comprised independent evaluation reports, internal project management data reports, anonymised dataset summaries and other ETF management reports.
