Welcome to the Skills for Life Network e-news update

You'll see that the e-news update has a new look. Scroll down to find the latest feature articles, jobs and news items. If you click on any article you'll be taken through to the new site, where you'll find more changes!

The new site version has a Training and Development section. There's also a new Resources section, with useful links, downloads, resource news and a Resource Showcase. The Showcase features specialist publishers and suppliers of Skills for Life resources, and will help you find out about their products and services.

Over time, the Showcase will hold searchable information on products from 20 key organisations, and we welcome our first four Showcase sponsors: Gatehouse Media; ABC Production; Read On Write Away and The Learning Matters Partnership. Do visit them!

If you would like to recommend a particular publisher for inclusion in the Showcase, email us at admin@skillsforlifenetwork.com.

Jobs: we have a new and colourful Jobs section, with full details of how to place a job advertisement with us. We've also added some testimonials from providers who have advertised their job vacancies with us - worth looking at if you haven't recruited through Skills for Life Network before.

If you're interested in ICT Skills for Life professional development, do take a look at the attached article - there is a limited number of free training places available on this online course.

Happy surfing!
