First cross-sector opportunity for teachers, trainers and leaders to have their say in a major sector-led systematic Training Needs Analysis
Sector bodies and the Department for Education (DfE) have joined forces under the aegis of the Education and Training Foundation to launch 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. The Training Need Analysis is being conducted by the ETF, in partnership with the Association of Colleges (AoC), Association of Employer and Learning Providers (AELP) and HOLEX.
The Training Needs Analysis will provide crucial baseline data to ensure future training for teachers and trainers is aligned with their professional needs and priorities. The analysis will be carried out through two surveys with a target of several thousand responses, and the findings will be published in early 2018.
A telephone survey will explore training needs from the perspective of organisations within the sector, while an online survey via email will explore training needs from the perspective of individuals. The survey can be found at: www.etftrainingsurvey.co.uk.
Organisations will be selected to take part in the telephone survey on a randomised basis4 over the next few weeks. Everyone working in the FE sector can take part in the online survey.
