The FET Professional Development Strategy 2017-2019
stems from a commitment set out in the Further Education and Training Strategy 2014–2019
, which reflects the strong link between professional development within the sector and the quality of the education and training provided. It also reflects national and European policy, which places the professional competence of the workforce as central to the ability of FET to respond to the changing needs of employers and learners.
The strategy was developed by SOLAS in close collaboration with Education and Training Boards Ireland
(ETBI) and its member ETBs
. It is based on an extensive data collection and consultation process and review of national and international practice in FET professional development.
