What is the Digital Teaching Professional Framework?

The Education & Training Foundation's Digital Teaching Professional Framework - or DTPF - is a national EdTech competency framework which underpins their fully subsidised EdTech training offer. It was launched by the ETF in November 2018 to provide a set of professional standards for technology-enhanced learning and aims to establish a common understanding of digital skills development.

The Digital Teaching Professional Framework is a competency framework for teaching and training practitioners across all parts of the FE sector, including for learning providers in the workplace, community settings and prisons. It has been developed by the ETF in collaboration with Jisc – a not-for-profit organisation which provides digital solutions for UK education and research – and has been designed to focus on the benefits of good pedagogy supported by technology to enhance learning.

Vikki Liogier, Head of learning technologies at the Education and Training Foudation Talks About DTPF.

What does the Digital Teaching Professional Framework set out to do?

The framework sets out different teaching contexts and activities, and the main components that comprise each of these. Each component is mapped to relevant parts of the European Framework for the Digital Competence of Educators, the ETF’s Professional Standards and Jisc’s six Digital Capabilities. There are statements that describe what competency looks like for each of the teaching and training activities that form the core elements of the framework. The competency statements describe three stages of competence – Exploring, Adopting, Leading – to show how practitioners can develop their skills.

The new framework is accompanied by free, online, bite-size training modules, which will be accredited so that practitioners can build up credits towards a badged award. The training modules are being designed to support just-in-time and self-identified training needs.
