We welcomed Helen Goodman MP to our wonderful head office based at Durhamgate near Spennymoor.
The local MP had a tour of the head office which opened earlier this year and has recently seen an extension into a third building due to rapid growth.
We employ over 430 staff members and the head office sees over 250 staff together on one single site, we have just celebrated our 15th year in business in September.
Having grown both organically and through acquisition since 2004, we have become one of the largest and most diverse training providers in the country, supporting impactful training and skills strategies helping businesses meet core organisational objectives. 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 several different models and access to over £20m of adult skills funding, our offer is attractive to a range of individuals and businesses.
Whilst Helen Goodman MP was visiting the three buildings, she had the opportunity to talk to our apprentices who spoke passionately about why they chose an apprenticeship route for their training and the impact that Learning Curve Group (LCG) has had on their career prospects.
Brenda McLeish, CEO, Learning Curve Group said, “It was lovely to show Helen Goodman MP, our fantastic new facilities and how we have grown since the first time she visited us at our old premises in Bishop Auckland.”
Helen Goodman MP said “I was really pleased to go to Learning Curve Group. It has grown amazingly fast, and now has 430 employees. I really enjoyed talking to the apprentices about their enthusiasm for learning new skills.”
