Welcome to the Skills for Life Network E-News Update

A very Happy New Year to everyone!

We have an update from DIUS on the FE and Skills Reforms, including information relating to the Skills Funding Agency and to the Adult Careers Service.

Training: you'll see that there are several free training events coming up, and there's also a Maths level 3 bridging programme starting soon at Northern College, Barnsley.

Nominations are now open for Adult Learners' Week, and we also have news of the Move On to World Class Skills numeracy promotional pack.

Happy surfing!
