Welcome to the August issue of the Vocational Learning Resources Newsletter. This month, we have a reminder about the VLR promotional materials available on our support site and a couple of upcoming Jisc events that may interest you.
Promotional Materials for VLRs
We hope that you have either already subscribed to our Vocational Learning Resources for the next academic year or will be doing so in the near future!

- Posters to promote the benefits of using Jisc’s Vocational Learning Resources
