Skills for Life Network E-News Update14 Jul 2009

Welcome to the Skills for Life Network E-News Update

If you're interested in keeping up with the developing changes around 16-18 and post 19 funding, do check out the latest bulletin from the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills.

Numeracy: take a look at the new 'Maths Takes You There' website, and if you'd like to find out more about becoming a teacher of adult numeracy, you may find the series of information leaflets developed by the North East Skills for Life Teacher Educator Network useful. See below for more details.

The next edition of the e-news update will go out on the 8th of September, but we'll continue to keep you posted on new job vacancies and the website will be updated as usual in the meantime.

Have a great summer!
