Welcome to the Skills for Life Network E-News Update

We have a very colourful edition of the e-news update for you! You'll find information on forthcoming training and events, and also on a range of resources to support teaching and learning. If you would like to feature your event or resources on the site and in the e-news update, contact us for more information.

If you're working with young people, do take a look at the new resource on Skills for Life and young people, available on the Excellence Gateway.

Finally, you can now read the responses to Ofsted's consultation on proposed changes to FE and skills inspections from September.

Happy surfing!
