Welcome to Skills for Life Network

The fast moving news and information channel for teachers, managers and supporters of functional skills and GCSE maths & English, digital skills, ESOL, employability and SEND.

New funding rates for adult provision from academic year 2024 to 2025 will mean that the funding rate for digital skills qualifications will be increased.

The next meeting of the Essential Skills and Inclusion Network will be held online on the 24th of February. All Practitioners of English, Maths, ESOL, SEND and digital skills working in the prison sector are welcome.

This free course traces the history of prisoner education in Britain, which started at the turn of the nineteenth century with schemes to improve the literacy and numeracy of prisoners.

A key recommendation in this new report from the Labour Party is that adults should be entitled to free digital skills courses up to level 2, in line with the equivalent English and maths entitlements.

New resources mapping the Professional Standards for Teachers and Trainers to the career development of practitioners have been released by the Education and Training Foundation.
