Good news for Adult Community Learning

place holder

North Lincolnshire Council’s Adult Community Learning service has been rated as ‘good’ in their latest Ofsted report.

The report from Ofsted praises Adult Community Learning for supporting learners from vulnerable and disadvantaged groups in North Lincolnshire to succeed and make a positive contribution to their local community. The report also highlights how tutors tailor support for their learners and create an inclusive atmosphere that celebrates diversity and supports equal opportunities.

It’s good news for the service’s learners too. Most of our learners achieve their qualifications and many then progress from entry level to higher qualifications. The majority of learners who take GCSEs in maths and English succeed in achieving a grade between A* and C.

The service has maintained its ‘good’ rating despite a rigorous new inspection process being implemented by Ofsted, showing that the service has adapted well to the changes.

Cllr Rob Waltham, Deputy Leader of North Lincolnshire Council, said:

Our Adult Community Learning service is vital in supporting North Lincolnshire’s economic development by responding to the learning and skills needs of local people. It’s fantastic to see that the service has maintained its ‘good’ rating from Ofsted and that the inspectors recognised the good work that our tutors do to support their learners.

Having good qualifications improves access to better paid jobs. We receive a large Government grant every year to support our residents to secure better qualifications. It is never too late to further your education and our teams can work with you to improve your prospects.
