Axis Group’s training and development division, the Axis Academy has opened their head office in Sidcup, Kent. This new office will not only expand the number of training rooms that the academy offers but it will also act as a springboard to growing various training programs and initiatives that the company has planned.
Axis Academy started as an internal training division, educating Axis Group staff but since it’s inception in 2017, it has now trained more than 3000 people across over 300 courses. These numbers include the employees of external customers such as McDonalds, Newave Education, and the National Careers Service.
“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’’, says Axis Group HR & Learning Director, Naomi Austen.
Head of Learning and Development at the Axis Academy, Duaine Taylor says “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.

Duaine Taylor says the Academy operates in a number of strategic locations across the UK to meet the business’ demands:
