About Us

Skills for Life Network is the key news, information and signposting resource for teachers, managers, supporters and learners of functional skills and GCSE maths and English, digital skills, ESOL, employability and SEND. 

Developed in 2003 by practitioners Barbara Zealley and Caryn Loftus, Skills for Life Network was subsequently part funded by the Learning and Skills Council and played a key role in communicating the Government’s Skills for Life Strategy.

Fully self-supporting since 2007, Skills for Life Network is managed by an editorial team and inspired by a vibrant community of subject specialists who are actively engaged in supporting teaching and learning in the Further Education and Training sector.
