Learning Ladders

Learning Ladders is a relatively new company which has been in existence for three years. They have created a framework whereby a school can input their own curriculum and their own assessment policy.

 It also allows schools to customise their curricula in line with current Government recommendations. Also, Learning Ladders have their own curriculum content which they have developed in partnership with client schools.


The product has a teaching portal where staff can check on pupils’ progress. It also has a parent portal where photographs and videos can be shared. Parents can access pre-written resources which explain to them how they can help with their child’s education at home. These resources are translated into 102 different languages. Parents have their own secure log-in and can see their childrens’ work across multiple schools. The system is cloud based.


The product costs £7 per pupil, which is an inclusive annual subscription.


The product can be purchased over the phone. At best, Learning Ladders can be installed within 24 hours. Training is provided remotely, and there are also lots of in-built help guides and help videos. There is a helpdesk however, to deal with any problems that the guides and videos can’t solve. There is also a team of regional trainers who are available to help.


Although this is a relatively new product, it has been nominated for eight BETT awards in the last three years. Learning Ladders’ product is clearly in a constant state of evolution, and personally I can’t wait to see how it will have evolved in another three years. It is a fine product.
