Local charity The Learning Curve, based in Trowbridge, has been rated ‘good’ for a second time by educational standards agency, Ofsted.
The charity which aims to change the lives of socially and economically disadvantaged people offers a wide range of courses including IT, maths and English, parenting and personal development programmes; many of which are free to eligible learners.
The Ofsted report states:
“The Learning Curve continues to ensure that a high proportion of learners successfully complete their qualifications and develop personal and social skills. Learners increase their ability to gain employment, develop their career or progress to further education as a result of their course.”
The Ofsted report praised the collaborative work of The Learning Curve and recognised the positive impact of joining the Selwood Housing Group in August 2016. Many Selwood tenants as well as the wider community have been able to benefit from the wide range of courses available to help boost confidence, life skills and employability.
Barry Hughes, group chief executive of Selwood Housing Group said:
