The Academy

What is The Academy?

The Academy is a unique, purpose-built learning and conference centre based at Wheatley Group headquarters on Glasgow’s Cochrane Street.

Its role is to help everyone who works for Wheatley Group to realise their full potential via a range of bespoke learning and development opportunities.

Who is it for?

The Academy’s facilities and expertise benefit everyone who works for the group – from frontline staff in our neighbourhood teams, such as janitors and cleaners, to senior managers at head office.

But its staff reach out into the communities and the sectors we work in too. As well as running a successful Modern Apprenticeship scheme, the Academy works with people in schools and neighbourhoods, offering them opportunities to undertake vocational training that could help them find a job.

The Academy is also available for conferences and seminars.

What does it do?

The Academy offers a wide range of learning and development options, including all levels of certification in the CIH Certificate in Housing Practice – a vocational qualification available to anyone working in the rented housing sector.

It also offers sessions in subjects such as Presentation Skills, Business Skills, Interview Techniques and Time Management. Courses are planned and delivered in-house by a dedicated team of learning and development professionals.

The Academy’s facilities include:

  • Brand-new self-contained training centre in a city-centre location
  • Flexible meeting rooms
  • Conference facility for up 150 delegates
  • Two large training rooms
  • Three IT suites with smart boards.
