Welcome to the Skills for Life Network E-News Update
We have information on several Skills for Life focused reports for you this week. The NIACE report card outlines the progress made to help adults with low literacy and numeracy skills through the Government's Skills for Life Strategy. The impact of the Skills for Life Strategy is also the subject of a summary report from NRDC, and there is a new report from BIS on the longitudinal survey of adult learners on college based Skills for Life programmes.
The Functional Skills Support Programme network events are now underway, so if you'd like to attend an event in your region, take a look at the article below to find out more.
Jobs: a point of note - the Skills for Life Manager (maternity cover) post with North Yorkshire County Council is full time, however part time work (minimum 3 days) would be considered for the right applicant. See below to access the full details.
