FE Guild Development Project
Organisations may be aware the FE Guild is in the process of being established, in preparation for launch in August 2013. They will be taking over the responsibility for teachers working in Further Education and vocational work-based environments, previously the responsibility of the Institute for Learning (IfL) and the Learning and Skills Improvement Service (LSIS).
The most significant change as a result of the Lingfield Report (2012), is that indications are that there will not be specific regulation dictating which qualification individual workforce must hold, as it will be for the employer to decide what is required for the role and environment they are working in.
Previously teachers working in FE had to hold PTLLS within 12 months of starting teaching, and progress to CTLLS within 5 years of starting teaching.
For organisations who would like to find out more about The Guild, they are holding free consultation events in February.
