Social and Community Action
Our mission is to deliver high quality learning and training, developing a skilled workforce and inspiring individuals and companies to achieve their full potential.
We want to make a positive contribution to our communities. This is particularly important to the employees who live in these areas. Our links are particularly strong in Wiltshire, where a large number of our employees are based. This is where the business was born, from Haddon Stud and Manton Grange, and we’re proud to call it home.
But our scope is wider than Wiltshire. We are a National Training Provider, covering the length and breadth of England and Wales. We attend local partnership forums – Thames Valley and Gloucestershire & Wiltshire, to understand local priorities and wherever possible actively contribute to local initiatives or projects.
What we do:
- We have a designated Coordinator tasked to identify and promote charitable/fundraising activities by the
- Company’s employees. We remain committed to holding two different charity events per year to raise funds; these are chosen by our staff.
- Our staff are encouraged to volunteer in their local community. In aid of this, every employee is allowed up to, and encouraged to take, one day’s paid leave per financial year to carry out work for the good of the community. This must be agreed with a line manager in the first instance.
- We provide our learners with access to wider curriculum and enrichment activities to help educate and develop life-skills through opportunities they would not ordinarily have. We hold a minimum of 2 employer forums per year to engage with our employers, identify skills gaps and develop our curriculum.
- Our Marketing Coordinator works diligently to promote staff, employer, learner and partner fundraising and community activities by posting accurate, timely, and relevant content on our website and to our social media channels.
