Education and Training Foundation: background
The Education and Training Foundation (ETF) is a growing body with a huge responsibility. Its job is to develop the capacity and capability of the Further Education (FE) teaching profession and its leadership.
The quality of England’s Further Education system is a vital input into our national capacity for economic growth, social mobility, community cohesion and international competitiveness. No education system can exceed the quality of its teachers – or its leaders. Founded over five years ago, the ETF has been on an exciting and remarkable journey and has now become the pre-eminent workforce development body.
Both the Chair and Chair of Audit Committee, Paul Mullins and Steve Freer respectively, are stepping down, as their terms of office come to an end. We are now looking for an outstanding individual to lead the ETF in a new stage of development.
The ETF Chair provides leadership to the Board with prime responsibility for ensuring it has agreed priorities, appropriate structures, processes and a productive culture and has board members and senior staff who are able to govern well and add value to the organisation. The Board sets strategic direction, ensures proper financial arrangements are in place, and ensures that the ETF remains focused on delivering high quality services to the sector.
You will have an outstanding reputation and profile in your professional field and will bring experience of leading at Board or Committee level, have a high level of governance skills and demonstrable independence of mind. You will bring an understanding of the challenges and changes facing the education sector, and the ability to command the confidence of key stakeholders and influence senior decision makers. Alongside the recruitment of the Chair of the Audit Committee, and new members joining the board, the ETF is starting a new phase in its board development.
The time commitment will be circa thirty days a year and the post will be remunerated up to £20,000 per annum.
