Who we are
The Institute for Learning (IfL) is the independent, member-led professional body for teachers, trainers, tutors, assessors and other professionals working across the diverse further education (FE) and skills sector including:
A number of IfL members also work in schools, higher education, are retired from the sector or, as Companion members, have an interest in the sector and wish to support IfL.
Formed in 2002, IfL is the sector's specialist in teaching, training and learning for individual teachers and trainers. As a professional body, IfL has a distinct role in supporting individuals to be excellent in their practice, thereby enhancing the professional status of teachers and trainers.
As an independent professional body, IfL is governed by an elected advisory council and non-executive board, and works closely with several sector organisations, unions and employer bodies.
