First bids in!
JISC Advance is pleased to announce that the first bids for funding have been received for our exciting FE and Skills: Development and Resources Programme.
The bids - from Adult and Community Learning providers - propose a better use of existing resources in partnership with other providers, and reaching learners in rural and isolated settings.
Nigel Ecclesfield, Programme Manager, commented: "It's great to see so many learning providers enthused about the project. We've received a number of bid ideas and are hoping to share these with you over the next few weeks."
And there's still plenty of time to take part! You have until 31 May 2012 to submit your bids. £450,000 is available to adapt, update and make existing resources available to all parts of the FE and Skills sector and £900,000 for new projects working to fill gaps in resources and provision across the sector. The JISC RSCs are on hand to provide guidance and support for writing and submitting your bids.
