Corndel Charity Team Named Winner: Learning Giveback Award 2024

Our Award-Winning Charity Team

We are delighted to announce that the Corndel Charity Team received the Learning Giveback Award at the Learning Awards 2024 due to their tireless and impactful work on the Corndel Levy Pledge. 

The Corndel Levy Pledge was designed to help large UK organisations better use their Apprenticeship Levy – turning wasted funds into social impact for UK charities. The team developed the pledge to create a compelling solution to a pressing issue – over £3 billion of Levy funding has gone to waste since 2019. The extent of the problem can’t be understated, especially given the current cost-of-living crisis, which has reduced charitable giving. This has led to: 

  • 88% of charities view achieving financial sustainability and meeting service demands as critical challenges 
  • 89% of charities currently in the UK do not have access to a Levy Pot 

Over the past three years, Corndel clients have gifted just over £4.5 million worth of their levy funding to charity partners, including NSPCC, Hospice UK and NHS Charities, supporting learners in developing their skills in fundraising, data analytics and leadership.  

The team purposefully match companies to third-sector organisations that align with their corporate social responsibility values and works closely with them to embed long-term sustainable relationships that drive impact and deliver quality training opportunities.  

To win the Learning Giveback Award is much more than to be recognised for achievement in L&D. It is to become part of a prestigious and exclusive community – where passion meets creativity, where tenacity meets results. It is the ultimate accolade given to anyone working in learning and development.
