Our social enterprises
100% of our profits go to charity, and that’s that. We’re a community interest company (CIC). In a nutshell, this means that not only do we help people’s lives with our day to day work, but all the profit we make from that hard work goes straight to charity, no complications, we just want to help.
Being a social enterprise is a dynamic and inspiring way of doing business. Learning Links set up two social enterprises: Edu-Care Recycling UK and Optimum Training.
Edu-Care Recycling UK helps businesses reduce their carbon footprint and gives jobseekers valuable training, skills and work experience. It is a win-win situation. All profits are reinvesting in to Learning Links, to help vulnerable people who may be isolated, excluded, afraid or living in poverty.
Optimum Training creates training solutions specific to you or your company. All of our accredited and non-accredited courses can be tailor made to fit you.
Our courses are delivered by an experienced team of qualified tutors who inspire and motivate. We have bright and spacious training facilities in Porchester (near Portsmouth) and Newport (Isle of Wight) or we can come to a location to suit you.
