Welcome to Akkodis Academy
Re-skilling and up-skilling programs to future-proof your career
The pace of innovation makes it hard to plan for the future of your IT and engineering career. With the WEF forecasting that 65% of children entering primary school right now will do jobs that don’t yet exist, it can feel like the only predictable thing is change.
That’s where Akkodis Academy comes in. We understand that staying employable in the smart industry of tomorrow means a lifelong learning journey and, whatever stage of your career you’re at, and all of this is at no cost to you. We invite you to take your next steps with us.
The Akkodis Academy approach
We curate and create learning paths and journeys for specific roles, while remaining flexible so we can respond to changes in learners’ needs and plans.
The three Cs
Our approach focuses on our “three Cs” – providing the right curriculum, community and career for our learners.
Global presence with a local touch
We are currently present in Germany, France, the UK, Netherlands, Belgium, Spain, Italy, the USA, Japan and Australia. Our teams operate globally, but we know how crucial proximity is in learning and are committed to further expanding our local operations.
Sharing your ambition
We understand that you have high hopes for your future career – and we share that ambition. We’re aiming to train 55,000 IT specialists and engineers each year by 2025 and hope you’ll be part of that journey.
How Akkodis Academy Works
We understand that keeping your skills continuously up to date is vital for your career. Akkodis Academy will help you launch your professional pathway so you can keep ahead of the curve.
We create re-skilling and up-skilling programs in a variety of formats to fit your specific needs and goals. From self-paced learning paths and study groups to instructor-led online and campus sessions, we shape solutions designed to take talent further.
We offer bootcamps, part-time courses or full-time immersive courses to deliver the right training as and when it’s required. Each up-skilling and re-skilling program is specifically structured to deliver innovative training opportunities, wherever people are on their tech career journey.
We work with you to address your learning and skills needs:
1. Kickstarting your career: We can help close any gaps that we jointly identify. This could mean obtaining a qualification which is needed to start your new or next job, or courses of 2-6 weeks for upskilling in a specific technology. We ensure you have the skills you need to succeed in your role.
2. Getting started with traineeships: We can help you start your tech career with a traineeship. Our trainee programs incorporate work experience, preparing career entrants by supporting them in a dedicated program for 18-24 months. Please contact your local Akkodis Academy for more info.
3. Taking control of your future: We take your career progression and employability seriously. Jobs and roles change fast as technologies advance. We provide re- and up-skilling in line with your career path. We have a strong “career metro map” that allows you to map out where you want to go and what training will help you get there.
Your partner on your career journey
At Akkodis Academy, we’re committed to supporting you on your lifelong learning journey, helping you map out where you want to be and how you can get there. We do this by bringing our magic triangle to life: Our community of experts, the right career for you and your personalized curriculum.
These three cornerstones of our skilling triangle help visualize how the curriculum (what we teach) informs your career and creates a community of experts and vice versa.
We deliver our programs in a range of ways to match the flow and context of your learning, which could be full time, part time, in person, online or hybrid. We will work with you closely to map out a way that meets your needs.
At Akkodis Academy, we’ll find the right learning method for you. Online learning, peer-to-peer review and classic face-to-face instruction are all a part of the learning journey. And we’ll make sure your skills are transferable between jobs and sectors: For courses in specific technical skills, 80 percent will focus on the technology and 20 percent on the sector.
We believe in talent, not labels
Diversity in tech and engineering is key in shaping a future-ready, agile workforce. We’ve launched multiple internal and external programs that deliver the highest quality training to traditionally under-represented people within the tech and engineering industry:
