Skills for Life Network

The Society for Education and Training (SET) is the new professional membership organisation of the Education and Training Foundation for practitioners working in the post-16 education and training sector.

Since the close of the Institute for Learning (IfL) in November 2014, SET has taken on its legacy and continues to support practitioners through their professional membership. 

SET members include trainers, teachers, assessors, tutors, support staff, mentors, coaches and managers, working across the rich diversity of settings in education and training, including colleges, independent training providers, adult and community learning, employer/providers, the voluntary sector,  justice sector, and the armed services. 

The SET Mission

  • To promote the professionalism and status of those working in the post 16 education and training sector; ensuring our members gain wider recognition for their expertise and practice.
  • To engage our members in the active use, creation and dissemination of existing and new research into effective teaching and learning practice.
  • To bring together our members into professional communities of practice through events and community networks, regional, national and online.
  • To provide CPD opportunities which are relevant and impactful, at a reasonable cost.
