The UK’s largest education provider faced collapse last night, after failing to suppress a damning report.
Learndirect currently has more than 73,000 people on training courses and apprenticeships and employs more than 1,600 people.
On Friday a high court judge rejected their bid to overturn an Ofsted report which is understood to have given them the lowest possible grades. Ofsted say they will publish the report on Thursday.
Apprentices, the report says, are not given enough “off the job training” and management of apprentices is “ineffective”, according to FE Week.
The company, which largely relies on government funding, has been plagued by financial difficulties and falling performance.
And they have been accused of lining the pockets of managers and financiers since they were privatised by the Tories in 2011.
