Learning Curve Group reveals 1000-job expansion plans

A County Durham-headquartered training provider has revealed plans to create almost 1000 jobs in a UK-wide expansion.

Learning Curve Group wants to increase its headcount to more than 1500 by 2025.

The operator, based on the outskirts of Spennymoor, also plans to open a new skills academy every year, following the recent unveiling of a Business Academy in Darlington, which it says will support the Treasury’s move to the town.

Brenda McLeish, chief executive, said: “We wouldn’t be the successful business we are without the dedicated staff that work hard day-in-day-out to transform lives through learning.

“As we continue to grow, it is extremely important to me and the executive team that we keep the strong culture we have.”

The expansion plans were revealed during a two-day staff event at Newcastle’s St James’ Park, where employees took part in a range of development workshops.

The conference also saw workers commended for their hard work and commitment over the last year, with every employee given an extra day of paid annual leave for Christmas Eve.

Brenda added: “It has been amazing to have all of our people together in one place again after a long 18 months.

“This was our largest event to date, and I am so proud of how the business has grown to support over one million learners across the country.”
