The National Office of the Learning and Skills Council (LSC) has published a new report which shows that Lincolnshire and Rutland LSC have improved learner outcomes by 15% since 2003-4 ““ 10% higher than the national average.

This remarkable increase places the local LSC in the top two in the league table for learner outcomes in Apprenticeships ““ well ahead of 45 other areas throughout the country.

Bryan Skinner, of the Lincolnshire Work Based Academy, insisted that the success was a result of consistent hard work by local providers. “This great achievement is indicative of the excellent improvements in performance management by local training providers, in their commitment to increase overall levels of participation and achievement,” he said.

Hard Work Paying Off

Roger Begy, Chair of LSC Lincolnshire and Rutland, agreed with him, but also emphasised the contribution of local learners. “These figures illustrate the hard work of learners – as well as the organisations that support them – in achieving the skills that employers really need in a modern economy,” he said.

Paul Williamson, Executive Director of LSC Lincolnshire and Rutland, pointed to the contribution made by his own team. “The LSC has invested significantly in quality development and improvement, and has developed and implemented a clear and far sighted strategy to raise quality in all forms of post 16 provision,” he argued.
