At the very heart of the Learning People is our desire to be a socially conscious organisation that looks after the needs of our students, our staff, our partners and our local community.
Through that desire, we have been active in a variety of social programs, including Off The Bench where we worked alongside Totaljobs and Skillsoft in offering twelve out of work people free training and career advice.
Our staff frequently fundraise for charities as individuals and are fully supported by the company, such as Nick from StudentCare™ running 5k for Heroes charity and our CEO, Patrick and senior designer Jonno, competing in the London, Brighton and Paris Marathons.
We also support local charity Brighton Unemployed Centre Families Project by offering marketing advice and guidance, voluntary time, food for their kitchens and gifts for their yearly Christmas children’s party.
Set up in 1981, the centre is run by a small team of dedicated and passionate individuals.
Providing practical support, education, and recreation for the poorly housed or unwaged people and families of Brighton, the centre is a hub of activity for the local community, and is something the Learning People is proud to be a part of.
Further to this is our everyday recycling of office material, which in 2013 amounted to 1,630kg of material. The equivalent of 15 trees and 2,110kg of carbon dioxide.
