The DfE has informed the Education and Training Foundation (ETF) that some of the sector support it provides through grants will finish on 31 March 2022. Specifically, the impacted ETF programmes are: Basic Skills, Essential Digital Skills, Practitioner Research, Advanced Practitioner and Outstanding Teaching, Learning and Assessment. The DfE says it remains committed to supporting FE teachers and the vital work they do in improving achievement in English and maths, and will continue investing in CPD and research in 2022 and beyond. They will also be providing support in other ways, including through a wide range of grant and contract funding to the ETF, which will continue next year. More is here.
