Skills for Life Network E-News Update6 Apr 2010

Welcome to the Skills for Life Network E-News Update

Two new agencies officially took over the work of the Learning and Skills Council this week. See below to find out more about the Skills Funding Agency and the Young Peoples Learning Agency.

We have some sad news in this edition of the update: avantibooks has decided to cease trading. Avanti will no longer be able to supply your resources after June 30th 2010. Anyone wishing to place a final order with avanti should do so within the next few weeks. See the article below for more info and for details of how to place orders. We're sure you will want to join us in wishing Sue and Hilary all the very best for the future.

Jobs - important notice! We have received an overwhelming response to the advertisements for the posts of: Skills for Life Tutors (North East and other regions, caseload based), Skills for Life Trainer/Assessor (nationwide) and Skills for Life Tutor (North East and North West). We have acknowledged receipt of all applications, but due to the high volume, we are only able to respond to shortlisted applicants. If you don't hear from us by the 14th of April, please assume you have been unsuccessful on this occasion.

Happy surfing!
