Education Training & Recruitment

Learning Curve Group has helped over 400,000learners since 2004 to achieve nationally recognised qualifications.

Transforming lives through learning

Learning Curve Group specialises in education and training that supports the needs of three client groups; FE providers, employers and learners. Our combination of expertise and experience has created a sought-after model of success and a reputation for pioneering market leading learning.

For over a decade we have either directly delivered or provided services which support apprenticeships, diplomas, literacy and numeracy qualifications, vocational certificate programmes and short courses which meet the needs of employers and individuals alike.

Our accredited programmes are designed to complement employers’ existing in-house training provision and improve each learner’s knowledge and skills by assessing their core competencies against national standards.

We are directly funded by the Skills Funding Agency and Education Funding Agency, and are also the largest sub-contractor partner to FE Colleges of our type, meaning we help deliver over £20m of skills funding per year. Our extensive portfolio of services that support FE providers to reach their targets allows us to help over 100,000 learners a year achieve a nationally recognised qualification.

We are the largest publisher of specialist FE materials at levels two and three and creator of truly ground-breaking online and paper distance learning resources that support people to learn new skills to advance their careers.

And, as an education innovator, we constantly adapt our products and services and invest heavily in the development of our online capabilities, which create a better learning experience and bring significant efficiency savings to partners.
