A SERVICE providing support for adults and families has been awarded a ‘good’ Ofsted rating.

Inspectors say Portsmouth’s community learning service was well-resourced and provided a safe learning environment. Their report praised the service’s tutors for the support they offer to learners and their good use of learning technology to make lessons more enjoyable.

They also appreciated the decisive and successful action taken by managers, good partnerships with employers and schools. Cllr Luke Stubbs, cabinet member for community learning, said: ‘We are delighted that Ofsted has recognised the strength of this service and the hard work that goes in to provide high quality courses and support.

‘We’re particularly pleased that the report recognises our partnership work with many organisations in Portsmouth and the ability of the tutors and managers to support learners so that they can continue to make good progress in their learning.’
