Welcome to the Skills for Life Network E-News Update

We have several articles on useful resources in this edition of the update.

Firstly, a reminder that the materials for embedded learning can be accessed online via the Embedded Learning portal.

Next, a resource from NCETM that will be of interest to Numeracy teachers. Maths in Work has been designed to offer glimpses of the real world of work via video clips, to help learners appreciate not only the relevance of mathematics but also its importance in every day life.

Also, you'll find that there is now a new content theme on Preparing for Inspection on the QIA Excellence Gateway.

Finally, it's World Book Day on the 5th of March, and there are ten new Quick Reads titles due to be published then.

See below for full details.

Happy surfing!
