Welcome to the Skills for Life Network E-News Update

The Showcase and Directory of Skills for Life teacher training courses in the North East have now been updated. You will find these in the Training and Development/North East section of the site.

The Yorkshire and the Humber Showcase is in the process of being updated. If your organisation offers Skills for Life teacher training programmes in the YH region and is not yet represented on the Showcase, contact us with brief details (course titles, levels and contact names) and we will add them accordingly.

Happy surfing!
