Welcome to the Skills for Life Network e-news update.

We have a focus on reading in this edition of the update, with news items on World Book Day, Quick Reads and the BBC Read and Write campaign.

You'll see that LLUK are holding a series of dissemination events to provide up to date information about the progress of reforms relating to teacher education, including Skills for Life and 14-19. Find out more from the article below.

Remember that you can find full details of all the professional development opportunities available to you through the regional Skills for Life Quality Improvement Programme at www.sflip.org.uk.
