Welcome to the Skills for Life Network E-News Update
We have a couple of funding related news items in this edition of the update, including information on the Call for Proposals in respect of the European Commission's Lifelong Learning Programme, and on how to apply for this funding.
The next round of the Skills for Life Improvement Programme (SfLIP) is now underway, and you can find out about the professional development support on offer via the article below. Please note that an initial closing date for applications of 15 October 2007 has been set. This does not exclude you from applying later and application forms will continue to be accepted for a period until the programme targets are reached, but it will be advantageous to apply early!
