Our mission

The Further Education Trust for Leadership (FETL) aims to foster and support the leadership of thinking in further education and skills. FETL offers opportunities to colleagues in and around the further education and skills system. We do this through our programme for the exploration of future possibilities, the events we offer and the resources we produce. We support sector colleagues to undertake research and development activities in areas which are of interest to them and which are relevant to the leadership of thinking, in pursuit of intelligent sector development. Their thinking in turn informs the creation of new, collaborative spaces of possibility, encouraging generative engagement with relevant partners.
