Welcome to the Skills for Life Network E-News Update

We have a couple of news items on Train to Gain in this edition of the update. There's an update on new funding flexibilities, and also information on the recent Ofsted report on Train to Gain provision.

We're receiving a growing number of queries via our Contact Us page. Many of these relate to Skills for Life teacher training and professional development. Do remember that the LLUK Information and Advice Service can help - telephone 020 7936 5798 or email advice@lluk.org For resource or qualification related enquiries, please contact the publisher or awarding body directly. You'll also find the contact number for DIUS Publications on our Contact Us page.
