Celeritas Mission

Through relevant customer training experiences by telephone or skype, Celeritas seeks to  empower individuals and corporations in effective communication skills in English. We will invest all profit generated, as well as our energy and talent to empower those in need through supporting targeted education and training initiatives.

 

Celeritas is a Social Enterprise.

Social enterprises are businesses whose primary purpose is the common good, applying commercial strategies to maximise improvements in human and environmental well-being, rather than maximising profits for external shareholders

They use the methods and disciplines of business and the power of the marketplace to advance their social, environmental or human justice agendas.

Three characteristics distinguish a social enterprise from other types of businesses, nonprofits and government agencies:

  • It directly addresses an intractable social need and serves the common good, either through its products and services or through the number of disadvantaged people it employs.

  • Its commercial activity is a strong revenue driver, whether a significant earned income stream within a nonprofit’s mixed revenue portfolio, or a for profit enterprise.

  • The common good is its primary purpose, literally “baked into” the organisation’s DNA, and trumping all others.

Celeritas Values

 

Empowerment

Empowerment is the heart and soul of our business, the essence of our brand.   We believe education is the great liberator and when we empower people with it the opportunities are limitless.

It can build best in class businesses from Shanghai to Stockholm, from Madrid to Malawi.  For individuals lost dreams awaken, new possibilities arise  – education is an elxir for poverty and opportunity its fruit.  Celeritas will champion empowerment  through education and be a catalyst of change.

 

Innovation

in·no·va·tion

noun \ˌi-nə-ˈvā-shən\

: a new idea, device, or method:

: the act or process of introducing new ideas, products, services, methods

From being a people-powered, e-learning social enterprise which leverages on-demand  virtual learning channels to linking training needs to Corpòrate Social Responsibility, innovation is the compass of Celeritas

As your needs evolve, we will listen to the Voice of Customers and we too will continue to deliver new innovative, relevant customer experiences –at the speed of business.

 Celeritas, the secret’s in our name.

Celeritas /se’leritas/ is a Latin word, translated as “swiftness” or “speed”

 

Passion

If innovation is our compass passion is our fuel.

We value passion, determination, perseverance, and the sense of urgency.

We are inspired because we believe in our mission. We don’t take “no” or “that’ll never work” for an answer because if we had, then Celeritas would have never started in the first place.

Passion and determination are contagious. We believe in having a positive and optimistic (but realistic) attitude about everything we do because we realise that this inspires others to have the same attitude qnd belive in themselves

There is excitement in knowing that the Celeritas family of customers and stakeholders will make tremendous impact on a larger dream and vision.

“Building skills, transforming lives”

 

Contribution

We believe in helping where help is needed whether it is needed by an individual, an organisation or an entire community .We respond to need as effectively as we can with our our resources to fulfill our mission.

The Celeritas team share their knowledge and experience with each other and give some non-paid service time to support the business and Celeritas Youth Programmae.

 

Openness

At Celeritas, we embrace diversity in thoughts, opinions, and backgrounds.

Strong, positive relationships that are open and honest are a big part of what differentiates Celeritas from most other e-learning companies, which are often remote and souless

We will continually seek to gather your feedback and embrace it to make our services better, more relevant

We are committed to transparency with our stakeholders, showing clearly where your money is being spent by making our annual accounts available to all stakeholders as well as updating our website with the tangible impact of our social initiatives and investments

 

Celeritas Social Investment Initiatives

 

social2

The mission of Projects Abroad is to encourage young people to volunteer for worthwhile work in developing countries. Our Managing Director worked as a volunteer in a teaching project in Peru for projects Abroad in 2012

Projects Abroad  provide new benefits and services for poor people living in the countries where they work by improving the social and physical environment around the developing world. Projects Abroad also provide new opportunities and perhaps a greater vision for volunteers. In the long run they aim to bring more cross-cultural understanding into the world.

Celeritas is currently defining the scope of an Education Project in the Cusco region of Peru where the ability to speak English can truly empower people through future  job opportunities in the tourism sector

Celeritas Youth Programme

The global financial crisis has taken its toll on Spain, home of Celeritas.

Youth employment of the under 30´s is at a devastating 50%.  Whilst we don´t have a magic wand, we won´t sit back and do nothing.

Our trainers will each partner with a young Spanish person to invest in them for the medium term, helping them with free Celeritas Confidence sessions.

We will update this page with details of of those selected for the programme and their progress

Where possible we will work with our corporate partners to try to provide relevant work experience placements for those on our Youth Programme. If you would like to apply for the Celeritas Youth Programme please contact us on
