Supporting charities on both a global and national level, we develop long term relationships with causes that are meaningful to the team and the business.
Each year, each of our offices selects a new cause that is close to their hearts and they become the main focus of our CSR efforts for the financial year. Specifically, we choose charities that have a direct impact on one or more of the team and support them in the only way we can – through the provision of all kinds of support such as volunteering, fundraising or donating our services and products.
On top of this, we have an events calendar of regular internal and external programmes that are in line with our beliefs that we are committed to supporting year on year, for example coffee mornings for Macmillan Cancer. These experiences are an opportunity to share knowledge and to learn internally and externally through the experiences of others.
Raising awareness for important issues is high on our list of priorities. We’ve made some of our topical modules available completely free forever, so that individuals and organizations can access important information as and when they need it.

On Be a Saint Day this year, a few of the team dropped by to help clean up and plant some new saplings.
In 2019 set ourselves the goal of walking 2 million steps collectively as a team. Sounds like a lot, but that’s the equivalent of the distance between our UK offices.
We managed to smash our target in a single week with a total of 3.5 million steps resulting in a donation of £1,000 between our chosen charities!
We’re taking part in annual the GT5K Runway Run with Grant Thornton to help raise money and awareness for the Simon Communities with eight of the Learning Pool team participating and contributing £200.
We recently took part in Girls in ICT week at Victoria Prep School in Belfast.
A member of our technology team went to a local preparatory school to deliver seven 45-minute taster sessions in Scratch and Scratch Jr.
Scratch is a colourful programming interface developed by Massachusetts Institute for Technology (MIT) and is used to teach complicated programming concepts to children in a fun and engaging way.
