Welcome to the Skills for Life Network E-News update

A couple of points of note in this edition:

If you're a Skills for Life teacher trainer or trainee teacher, you may be interested in the free Skilled to go workshops. Skilled to go is a free web-based toolkit that uses everyday consumer situations as contexts for learning numeracy and literacy. Find out more below.

Functional skills: we've recently added a functional skills frequently asked questions page to the website Knowledgebase section, so do take a look. Also, all the Edexcel English, ICT and maths functional skills qualifications have now been accredited. Click here for more details.

Happy surfing!
