This online conference aims to increase recruitment to Further Education technical teaching, support ETF Further Forces programme trainees into technical teaching employment and raise awareness of ETF technical teaching recruitment programmes. It will also provide an opportunity for FE providers to promote their technical teaching vacancies and potentially carry out ‘live’ brokering.

Expected outcomes include:
• Increased awareness of the ETF Technical Teacher Recruitment programmes
• Increased understanding of the support available to recruit to 'hard to fill' technical teaching roles
• Increased awareness of the vacancies that currently exist and how to work with ETF delivery partners to invite trainees to interview
• Discover how graduates of the programmes have valued the support provided as they discuss their on-programme learning and next steps
• Discuss with FE providers their experience of employing graduates and trainees of the ETF technical teacher recruitment programmes.

Training aims include:
• To increase recruitment to further education technical teaching roles.
• To support existing ETF Further Forces trainees into technical teaching employment
• To support FE providers to promote their technical teaching vacancies and to potentially carryout 'live' brokering
• To promote a number of ETF Technical teaching recruitment programmes so that FE providers, wider colleagues and potential new trainees are aware of the support available to them. The programmes include:
     ◦ Further Forces
     ◦ SET for Teaching Success
     ◦ Taking Teaching Further.

The event is aimed at teacher trainees, individuals thinking of transitioning into a career in FE technical teaching, Further Education provider senior leaders and managers (including Human Resources, CPD and learning and development colleagues), and Armed Forces personnel.

It will feature both graduates of the ETF’s teacher training programmes discussing their learning and next steps, and FE providers talking about their experiences of employing the programmes’ graduates and trainees.
