Around the Curve is a learning consultancy with a passion for creative thinking. We believe that the present is informed by the future, so we help the individuals, teams and organisations we work with stay one (big) step in front of the competition with our forward thinking learning strategies.
We are based in Winchester and work with clients across the UK in sectors ranging from education to healthcare and enterprise.
Whether you’re looking for bespoke learning courses for your employees, or yourself, get in touch to see how can we help you.
Many organisations feel under pressure to modernise their learning and development function to keep up with the competition, but are often held back by a lack of understanding when it comes to contemporary learning technology and techniques.
Around the Curve make things simple. We can bring you and your team quickly up to speed on the latest thinking and developments in learning design and technology, and why they work. Giving you the right tools to make the smartest development decisions for your future.
The most successful learning programmes are designed creatively, with learner’s goals in mind.
Using proven techniques and design tools, we can guide you through the creation of your bespoke learning programme, making sure your objectives are considered every step of the way.
Our extensive experience in researching, writing, curating and enhancing content alongside subject matter experts, means that whatever your industry or medium, we can make sure you’re equipped with the right content for your learners. The right design is key to learning successfully and it’s our job to make sure your programmes work seamlessly to fully realise your learners potential.
Finding the right learning technologies to help your organisation grow can be a challenge. Whilst there are thousands of options out there (learning management systems, social learning platforms, digital apps and tools)– there is only one you.
So, we go back to basics by matching the best technologies to your specific organisational mission, strategy and development needs, and making sure you know why. Your learners and learning programme are unique to you, and we want to make sure that the technologies you choose engage and inspire as well as ultimately achieve your goals.
Teaching in an online space is a very different proposition to teaching in a face-to-face environment; and it can feel very daunting. At Around the Curve we have been teaching in online spaces for many years and building successful relationships with learners is our forte. We can work with your team to develop their online facilitation skills and deliver a successful online programme.
