The Education and Training Foundation (ETF) have launched a series of 'How to' guides on the Professional Standards page of their website. These guides cover a range of topics intended to help professionals embed the standards in their working practice. 

The ETF, working with a variety of sector bodies, has produced revised guidance on the qualifications in education, training and assessment which are available and relevant for working in the post-16 education and training sector. ETF has produced updated guidance on the teaching qualifications for the further education and skills sector. These documents supersede those issued previously by the Learning and Skills Improvement Service (LSIS) and Lifelong Learning UK (LLUK). ETF has also produced updated guidance on Assessment and Quality Assurance Qualifications and has updated the Minimum Core Guidance, defining the minimum core of teachers’ knowledge, understanding and skills in literacy, language, numeracy and ICT; and, using inclusive approaches to address learners’ needs.
