Ofsted has rated Bucks County Council’s adult learning facilities good after a recent inspection.

The council is one of the main providers of adult learning in the county, and Ofsted said that 
leaders make sure that the curriculum is successfully aligned to community and national needs.

The inspectors also found that programmes for people with learning difficulties or disabilities were particularly effective. And that support from tutors who need extra support is good.

But room for improvement was also highlighted. Ofsted said that careers and next step advice 
for learners is not 
sufficiently or readily available.
