Our mission

The Further Education Trust for Leadership aims to strengthen and support the leadership of thinking in further education and skills. FETL offers funded opportunities to colleagues in the FE and skills system through our programmes of fellowships and grants, as well as through the events we offer and the resources we produce. We actively support sector colleagues to undertake research projects and development to explore areas which are of interest to them and relevant to the leadership of thinking in pursuit of intelligent sector development. This new thinking in turn informs the creation of new and collaborative spaces of possibility, encouraging generative engagement with relevant partners.
