UK-based Axis Group’s learning and development initiative, The Axis Academy, has opened a head office in Sidcup, Kent as part of a move to expand its training and development programme.
Since its creation in 2017, the academy has trained over 3,000 people who have enrolled on more than 300 courses – meeting Axis Group’s in-house needs, as well as those of external customers including McDonalds Restaurants, the National Careers Service and Newave Education Services.
Naomi Austen, Axis Group HR & Learning Director says its training courses are providing its customers with peace of mind: “We pride ourselves on delivering high-quality training courses that are often nationally recognised, providing regulated qualifications or are accredited under the CPD accreditation service.’’
With an ever-expanding portfolio of courses, The Axis Academy is able to offer a wide range of training courses both face-to-face and on its e-learning platform.
Duaine Taylor says the Academy operates in a number of strategic locations across the UK to meet the business’ demands:
“Whilst there are no plans to change this style of delivery, we are extremely pleased to create a hub and a place we can call ‘home’ in Kent. The state-of-the-art dedicated learning and development environment will allow us to extend the number of courses delivered across London and the South,” he says. “This is a big step forward in the Academy’s growth plans for 2020. We are also pleased to have added a suite of Mental Health First Aid courses to our portfolio and have trained over 100 learners within the course’s first two months.’’
