Corporate Social Responsibility

Our CSR team

Our dedicated CSR team work together to improve the communities we live and work in by putting our wide product and solution range to good use in partnership with many different organizations around the world. We take the same approach to our CSR objectives as we take in working with our 1000+ customers around the world, creating a respected, open and transparent relationship that everyone trusts to do the right thing. As we continue to grow we never forget the people who join us have been doing their own great work in the community and our Remote Learner colleagues have joined our CSR team to increase our potential.

Here are just some of the things we’ve been up to.


Charities supported by the team

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.

Free Modules, Forever


We've partnered with One Tree Planted and joined their ‘million tree challenge‘

Joining the ‘Million Trees Planted’ initiative, our partnership with One Tree Planted represents our dedication to more sustainable development. Planting trees is one of the best ways to combat the damaging effects of climate change and we have committed to helping One Tree Planted plant 10,000 trees in national forests across the US.

Going forward, we have also committed to donating the profits of our Net Zero collection to help further fund the ‘Million Trees Planted’ challenge.

Raising money at Learning Technologies

We used our platform at Learning Technologies 2019 to raise awareness for Save the Children.

For every visitor to our stand, we donated £5, giving us a total of £2,115 to donate to a great cause this year.



Time to Read

We know how valuable reading is for young minds. That’s why each year we take part in the BITC Time to Read programme.

Learning Pool team members visit a local primary school where they’re introduced to two children for a year’s development partnership focusing on the development of literacy and numeracy skills to help build confidence and self-esteem.


Be a Saint Day

Palliative Care service charity, Foyle Hospice, regularly welcomes Learning Pool volunteers to help with the up-keep of their beautiful gardens.

On Be a Saint Day this year, a few of the team dropped by to help clean up and plant some new saplings.



Virtual Walk

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!

Runway Run

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.



Girls in ICT

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.
