Each year, CPL’s board of trustees review the level of reserves with any excess surpluses reinvested back into the education sector via the “Giving Back” initiative. To date, over £1.1 million has been designated for re-investment in the form of various projects with the largest amount being used specifically for awarding non-refundable grants to our members. So far £547k of grants have been “given back” to 101 institutions comprising of colleges, schools, academies and universities nationwide.
Take a look at the below videos from a few of our beneficiaries Hopwood Hall College, St John Rigby College and Kendal College, all whom have benefited from our funding, demonstrating the positive impact this is having for students at the beginning of their professional careers.
Funding enabled Hopwood Hall College to further enhance its existing learner enrichment programme to include a strong focus on sustainability and protecting the world we live in by using a unique interactive programme, which provides them with greater insight into the challenges we face regionally, nationally and internationally in reducing carbon emissions and ultimately global warming.
Funding helped support the Sport and Exercise Science Performance Analysis Project - which included the purchase of a force plate, GPS vests, blaze pods and timing gates to help bring the sports science to life for the students.
Funding helped support the 'Pass It On' project, which involved Theatre practitioners teaching students many of the skills of their trade which they could then use to create workshops which they took out to local Primary schools.
