The PETA-SAs sole objective is to improve teaching, training and learning, through supporting individual practitioners in memberships through a professional body to the best of their ability across the full diversity of the sector. We do this by delivering our three strategic priorities:

  • by giving benefits and especially professional development to practitioners;
  • by according status in recognition of expertise;
  • and by giving a voice so that learning and teaching professional can inform policy.

Despite recent progress, teachers and trainers in further education and skills remain under recognised in the public domain and policy making circles, and in comparison with both other professional.

Membership of the PETA-SA is part of individuals investing time and commitment to their own professionalism. The association, as is typical of professional bodies, also seeks to draw in new resources and financial investment that otherwise would not be available to professionals or the sector. In this way, we support the drive for excellence in teaching and training beyond what the state and employers can support.

Leaders and managers across the further education and skills sector benefit from encouraging and supporting teaching and training practitioners on their professional journey through membership. Utilising professional body membership and the services for individuals also benefits colleges and providers, as we have described in this document, dual professionals are able to provide a holistic and powerful learning experience through course content that is contextualised for up-to-date industry practices, developments and leading edge teaching, learning and assessment methods. PETA-SA seeks to ensure that quality of teaching and learning is at its highest possible and promotes a constructive dialogue between industry and providers and teaching and learning professionals.
