Transforming Lives

Through Learning

About Us

Learning Curve Group is a national training and education specialist. We work with further education providers, employers and learners to help them achieve success. Since 2004, Learning Curve Group (LCG) has grown both organically and through acquisition to become one of the largest and most diverse providers in the country. We have strong values which are all centred around our learners – and that's how we believe it should be, as we impact on over 100,000 of them every year. Our ‘Purple People’, the dedicated and passionate people of LCG, help us to deliver success no matter what, to achieve our vision to ‘transform lives through learning’.

This passion is also reflected in what we do to support our communities. You can read about the plan our Community Champions have to ensure our Corporate Social Responsibility plans to drive positive change here. 

Our core values are:

  • Innovation through collaboration…we continually strive to deliver excellence through strategic and sustainable partnerships with a wide range of FE organisations and employers
  • Do the right thing…we endeavour to be open, honest and fair in our dealings with learners, employers, partners and stakeholders
  • Develop and empower our staff…we are passionate about supporting staff at all levels so that they can realise their full potential and progress
  • Continuous improvement …we are committed to continually exploring ways to improve the service we offer for the benefit of our learners, partners and employers
  • Learners are at the centre of everything we do...we are driven by the desire to provide life-changing opportunities for our learners


We work with businesses throughout the UK, supporting impactful training and skills strategies that help you meet core organisational objectives such as performance and output.

From short-term vocational qualifications to longer-term apprenticeships, including the best way to utilise the Apprenticeship Levy, we help over 4,500 employers every year with their workplace training plans. With a number of different models, from short to long term, and access to over £20m of adult skills funding, our offer is attractive to a range of sectors.

Upskill your workforce


We have a wide range of courses to craft new skills or build on existing ones. By utilising available government pots of money that are specifically budgeted for learning, we are able to offer a number of different training options. From stepping foot on the career ladder, to enhancing specific skills to give you that boost along the way, or taking a complete change of direction, you'll be able to find something here at LCG.

Enhance your career

FE Providers

Directly funded by the Skills Funding Agency and Education Funding Agency, we are the largest subcontractor partner to FE colleges of our type, meaning we help deliver over £20m of skills funding per year.

Our extensive portfolio of services supports FE providers to reach their targets, and 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 we create truly groundbreaking online and paper distance learning resources that support people to learn new skills to advance their careers.
