Online resources and courses

The Education and Training Foundation (ETF) has a range of online resources specifically aimed at Chairs, Governors and Leaders. These are through the ETF’s Excellence Gateway and Foundation Online hubs. 

Strategic Leadership exhibition site

The ETF has developed a series of strategic leadership resources with key experts in the Further Education (FE) and Training sector to support leadership development across the sector and more specifically to support our DfE funded Strategic Leadership Programmes for Principals and Chairs respectively. As the national workforce development body in the Post-16 Further Education and Training sector resources are aimed at the full range of leaders from leading colleges, independent training providers and adult community learning providers.

These resources can be found on our Excellence Gateway Leadership Exhibition Site.

These resources have been chosen to give FE and Training leaders an insight into effective leadership practice across the sector. The collection is very diverse and includes videos, a tool kit, case studies, reports and podcasts. We will continue to add to the resources to reflect the ever-changing world of FE and Training.

Many of these resources have been developed through the ETF leadership development programmes for principals, aspiring principals and chairs, which are delivered with Oxford Saïd Business School.
