Skills for Life Network E-News Update15 Jun 2010

Welcome to the Skills for Life Network E-News Update

Some brief points of note on the content of this edition:

If you're involved in apprenticeship delivery, you'll no doubt find the 'Functional Skills and Apprenticeships' publication useful.

We have an overview of the planned DfE spending cuts, with a breakdown of where the savings are to be made.

On a lighter note, you (and your learners, of course) may like to try out 'World Cup Skills' - a new on-line literacy, language and numeracy resource. Enjoy!

Featured recruiter: we know that many of you are interested in finding out about job opportunities - more than 9,000 of you have now registered to receive our email job alerts. You'll see that in this edition we have a feature on JHP Training, who are currently recruiting across their divisions.
