Welcome to the Skills for Life Network E-News Update

We have a key item of news in this edition of the update.

Following the announcement by Skills Minister Nick Boles on the 18th of November that there will be a review of the best way to achieve and accredit maths and English skills, the Education and Training Foundation will now review how these skills can be securely acquired, and ensure the resulting qualifications gain widespread recognition and respect from employers. More information below.

If you're a member of LinkedIn, you may like to join our Skills for Life Network LinkedIn group and share your thoughts on the review and what it may mean for the future of functional skills.

Happy surfing!
