Digital transformation for school children in Sussex

Learning People continue to make education more accessible by donating £1,500 to Level up Laptops March 2021 

Learning new skills and landing your dream job is possible with Learning People and its award-winning career services and student support. The Brighton company has been providing career ready education for 11 years with over 25,000 students worldwide. 

Always keen to support the local community, Learning People have donated £1,500 to Level Up Laptops that helped provide 15 laptops refurbished by Tech-Takeback to Coombe Road Primary school this week, with more on the way to other schools in Brighton and Hove.

Patrick Aylmer, founder of Learning People is thrilled to join initiatives such as these to help make education more accessible to children and would love more local businesses to join in.

“The most rewarding aspect of having set up Learning People is seeing so many happy and engaged people working in the business and supporting our students to live more fulfilling lives through their careers.”  

 “The tech industry is growing at an exponential rate with jobs outweighing skilled professionals. These children are the digital workforce of the future and it’s wonderful to support their education by donating these devices” Added Patrick. 

Learning People offers career ready education in the tech and project management sectors, to those looking to change careers, start fresh or simply advance in their current role.   

Businesses can also join initiative Level Up Laptop by donating new or refurbished IT equipment and donations are appreciated. It goes a long way in spreading the importance of giving and education: 


Full details of the Level Up Laptops Project can be found on its website at:

Brighton based SoPro created Level Up Laptops with registered charity the Tarner Community Project and Tech-Takeback, to encourage Sussex businesses to recycle unwanted devices or donate to cover refurbishment or purchase costs. The devices are then distributed to local children struggling to access online learning resources. Level Up Laptops will accept any laptop that runs Windows 7 or later plus tablets, which many younger children need for their studies. All devices will be refurbished before being distributed via local schools. Any devices donated to Level Up Laptops go through a thorough process to data erase, refurbish and PAT test them, conducted by technology partner Tech-Takeback before they are distributed.

Tech-Takeback is a not-for-profit business of experts in circular economy, data erasure, data security, reuse and recycling, with primary focus on reuse of small electricals to bridge the digital and social divide. Tech-Takeback also offers data-erasure services for businesses.
