Welcome to the June issue of the Vocational Learning Resources newsletter. This month, we have a reminder about accessing the VLRs after 31st July 2021, an update on our monthly top users section and our top 10 most used resources during the free access period so far.
Reminder about VLRs in core subscription
As we mentioned in our previous newsletter, Jisc’s Vocational Learning Resources will be part of the core FE subscription next academic year, meaning that colleges will not need to pay an additional subscription fee in order to access them.
However, please remember that the current free access period we set up for the resources ends on 31st July and in order to continue using the resources, colleges will need to sign a free licence agreement. The licence agreement will be available shortly and you’ll be able to find this on the Licence Subscription Manager.
If you do not sign this, your college’s access to the resources will end on 31st July 2021.

Monthly top users section postponed
As you may remember in our previous newsletter, we mentioned that we would be publishing the top users for our Vocational Learning Resources each month, starting in June. We do still intend to do this but as we’re now approaching summer, we’re postponing this until the next academic year.
We’re sorry for the confusion with this but, in the meantime, if you would like to receive your college’s usage statistics, you can request these by contacting email@example.com
Top resources during free access period
Although we’ve postponed our top users until next academic year, we’ve taken a look at which resources have been the most popular during the free access period.
We hope you’ve enjoyed using the resources and that you’ll continue using them next year.
