The Education and Training Foundation

The Education and Training Foundation supports a wide range of research activity for the sector, focussing on both large scale information gathering and individual practitioner research programmes. We currently deliver an MA and MPhil programme through SUNCETT at the University of Sunderland and support a range of small scale action research projects through our OTLA activity. Support for practitioner researchers can be found here https://research.excellencegateway.org.uk/

Being the home of independent, impartial and comprehensive workforce data and research we publish annual reports and recently carried out the first sector-wide training needs analysis

Locally organised groups in ETF’s Professional Exchange Networks encourage small scale action research as well as training, coaching and the sharing of practice.
