Celebrating our Shared Endeavour to reduce inequalities

The service is rated as 'very good'

We are delighted to announce that Midlothian Council’s Learning and Development provision was recently inspected. The report, published today, has rated this provision as ‘very good’ across all indicators: improvements in performance, impact on the local community, delivering the learning offer with learners and leadership and direction.

It helps communities flourish

Learning and Development activities help local people build skills for learning, life and work.  They also support community development helping communities to flourish.   

Cllr Constable congratulated everyone involved

Councillor Bob Constable, the cabinet member for education, congratulated staff, young people, parents, learners, volunteers, community members and the third sector including religious organisations. He said: “This inspection is a ringing endorsement of the fantastic partnership work that goes on to improve the lives of local people and help them achieve positive outcomes.

Learning and development is at the heart of our work

“Learning and Development is at the heart of our work to deliver the three Single Midlothian Plan priorities to reduce gaps in learning outcomes, improve health outcomes and improve the economy.“

“Teams across the county do everything from helping school leavers go on to a positive destination, such as a job or further education, to making sure local people take a lead role in decisions affecting their communities. A huge congratulations to everyone involved.”
