MELKSHAM-based training firm The Learning Curve has been graded good by inspectors.

Ofsted inspected the company, which provides training to the voluntary and community sector, in October, awarding a Grade two ranking.

The inspectors found well-qualified and experienced tutors stimulating learning, with teaching conducted in ways to take account of the needs and abilities of individual learners.

They also reported The Learning Curve was successfully focused on meeting the needs of hard-to-reach sectors of society and those previously disaffected or disengaged from education. They noted that learners’ achievement rates for the last year are high and generally at rates significantly above comparable national averages.

Tim Ward, chief executive of The Learning Curve, said he was delighted with the outcome.
