LQM/CIEH S4ULs: an update

Well its been a busy few weeks since we announced that the LQM/CIEH GAC are to be updated and relaunched as the ‘LQM/CIEH Suitable 4 Use Levels’ (S4ULs)

We have had lots of bookings for the S4UL workshops but there are plenty of spaces left – see http://www.lqm.co.uk/training/  .

There have also been lots of questions and queries about what the S4ULs will be, how they will be derived and how they may be used.  To address these we held a free “Background to the Suitable 4 Use Levels” webinar on Wed 11th June, which many found informative.  But we are also collating a Frequently Asked Questions page on our website for other queries relating to the development of the S4ULS.  This can be found at http://www.lqm.co.uk/s4ul-faq .
