To develop education professionals who are inspired to transform learners and their local, regional and national communities. We are committed to pedagogical approaches that develop models of social justice and thus challenge inequality.
The partnership does this by providing outstanding evidence-informed education, and training and research opportunities for the Further Education and Training sector.
This vision is underpinned by the philosophy of the Professional Standards for Teachers and Trainers in Education and Training – England (May 2014) which comprises three strands: Professional values and attributes, Professional behaviour and Dual professionalism.
By embedding this vision into the practice of the department, we meet the institutional priorities of teaching excellence, research and growth and diversity.
