Welcome to the Skills for Life Network E-News Update

You'll see that the revised Skills for Life core curriculum can now be accessed online via the Excellence Gateway. Also, in case you haven't yet seen it, do check out the updated Skills for Life Strategy - article below.

If you're wondering where your existing qualifications fit into the new requirements for Qualified Teacher Learning and Skills (QTLS) status, you may like to use the interactive tool from Standards Verification UK (SVUK). This will help you relate your existing qualifications to the new requirements, so that you can start your journey at the appropriate stage of the new qualifications. Further information below.
