Welcome to the Skills for Life Network E-News Update

We have a couple of funding related news items in this edition of the update, including information on the Call for Proposals in respect of the European Commission's Lifelong Learning Programme, and on how to apply for this funding.

The next round of the Skills for Life Improvement Programme (SfLIP) is now underway, and you can find out about the professional development support on offer via the article below. Please note that an initial closing date for applications of 15 October 2007 has been set. This does not exclude you from applying later and application forms will continue to be accepted for a period until the programme targets are reached, but it will be advantageous to apply early!

Regions: we have information on the Yorkshire and the Humber Skills for Life Conference 2008. Expressions of interest are being sought from Colleges and work-based learning providers to run workshops to support the sharing of good practice in developing employability skills programmes. Find out more from the article.

Jobs: Newcastle College, Durham County Council Education in the Community, Hull City Council Adult Learning Service, Accent Community Partnerships, Doncaster College and Wakefield MDC are all currently recruiting - see below for full details.
