Online training provider High Speed Training celebrating ‘Giving Back Friday’ by offering 500 free courses to UK charities.

High Speed Training, a leading e-learning provider, are giving away up to 500 free training courses to charities across the nation to celebrate ‘Giving Back Friday’, their take on the popular commercial event, Black Friday. 

The training company provides over 180 different online courses covering compliance and development subjects such as health and safety, food hygiene, mental health awareness, safeguarding, workplace first aid and business essentials, amongst many others. 

Earlier in November, they were awarded Organisation of the Year at the Learning Technologies Awards, recognising their passion and vision to continually improve their offering, as well as their determination to be a force for good through their charity and community work. 

As part of this commitment to being a force for good, High Speed Training has created ‘Giving Back Friday’, a chance for them to give something back to their community by donating up to 500 training courses to charities, helping to support the great work that they do. 

The event is a fresh take on the increasingly popular Black Friday, a day in which companies typically aim to increase their sales by offering significant discounts on their products. One of High Speed Training’s principal values is to ‘leave things better than we found them’ and therefore the company decided to take a different approach to the annual event, one that supports their mission. 

Starting from the 23rd November, charities will be able to enter a draw to receive up to 10 courses each to assist them with their invaluable work, and can choose from a large catalogue of some of the company’s most popular courses. The draw will be open until the 8th December 2023.

Ian Dowd, Sales and Marketing Director at High Speed Training, said: “We’re thrilled to announce the launch of ‘Giving Back Friday’, an initiative that will allow us to celebrate Black Friday in a way that aligns with our value of being a force for good and enables us to give something back to the nation’s charities.”

“Worthy causes will each be able to access up to 10 training courses from our catalogue at no cost, which we hope can be used by staff and beneficiaries to help support the invaluable work they do.”

“We began High Speed Training in 2008 and since then have grown to offer a wide variety of courses to over 2 million learners. We’re thankful to be able to do more than ever to help the communities we work in.”
