Training and benefits

The Academy

Less go it alone. More in this together.

When you do the same thing day after day, nobody wins.   That’s why we have the Academy, which offers regular skills and business training that lets you pursue the skills you want, at your pace.  Exam support is a big part of what the Academy offers. We pull out all the stops to provide you with every resource you need to achieve the result you want, from tutorials and practice exams, to study leave and more.

We have a rounded induction programme, which gives you everything you need to hit the ground running.  And we’ve launched a buddy system, so you can turn to someone who knows the ropes for impartial advice and feedback.

With us, you’re in the driving seat of your career. We provide plenty of opportunity to develop skills, through relevant work assignments that put theory into practice. We have even have a unique Trainee Progression system that helps you hit those important milestones. And, we reward you when you do.
