Welcome to the Excellence Gateway

The Excellence Gateway is the Education and Training Foundation’s resources portal where you can search for or browse and then filter over 7,500 resources, covering a broad range of topics and including guidance, effective practice, teaching materials, research and CPD materials. 

Note: Many of the resources contained here have been migrated from legacy sites that are now closed. These resources may contain useful information and ideas but references to policy etc will be dated. Please bear this in mind when viewing older resources. The date the resource was created is shown in the search results.


Every year, we ask colleagues from across the whole Further Education and Training sector what they think about our performance, the quality of the professional development support we provide and the impact we have had. To help us, please fill in our 10 minute Perceptions Survey. Thank You.
