PAT Group

“Springboard+ is co-funded by the Government of Ireland and the European Social Fund as part of the ESF programme for employability, inclusion and learning 2014-2020”

Corporate Social Responsibility

CSR has always been embedded in the thinking of the PAT Executive, stemming from an enduring commitment to act responsibly and operate with the utmost integrity in dealing with our valued stakeholders. The PAT CSR philosophy sets out the standards that we hold ourselves up to in relation to how we deal with our employees, customers, suppliers and society at large and guides the activities we pursue. Given the importance of quality teaching and learning excellence in the form of knowledge sharing, education is a core theme of our CSR programme.

In 2019 / 2020 PAT chose to partner with An Cosán, the community education charity because of its emphasis on education and the support it offers its local community (including Direct Provision) with particular focus on single mothers. PAT has invested significantly in its online education platform together with its assessment and testing platform. Therefore, through our Online Education programmes we have provided 5 fully funded ACCA Scholarships to those who have been identified as possessing emerging talent that can and will transform their education, skills and training for the workplace of the future – and a life of choice.
