BRE Academy’s vision is to raise the profile of the industry by helping to bring in and retain the very best talent from a diverse range of backgrounds, and by supporting career paths and specialisms in an exciting industry that touches the heart of the way we live, both today and in the future.
The Academy offers recognised industry qualifications, accredited CPD hours, and certificates to support progress and learning in this skilled industry. It also offers BRE Academy Membership, offering wider opportunities for career enhancement, with regular updates and free webinars on specific related topics.
BRE Academy’s courses and learning materials are developed by professionals in their fields – from BRE’s own industry leading experts, to leading industry bodies and universities.
The Academy is using and developing an increasing range of media to help deliver that learning in the digital age.
Whilst the Academy’s roots are in the UK, our industry is international. BRE Academy has a presence on every continent and is developing course content in languages other than English. To date it has sold courses to customers in more than 40 countries.
In addition to being offered as scheduled or online courses, BRE Academy’s training, both on-line and face to face, can be tailored to individual requirements. Online learning means course delegates can learn from home, the office, or anywhere that suits them, any time of the day or night, as long as there is internet access.
Classroom learning allows more space and time for consideration, and the opportunity for discussion with candidates from other companies in the same field. Webinars can be attended live, or alternatively accessed as recordings to be listened to at a later date. Learning materials are being delivered in an increasing range of formats.
A range of programmes are also in place to help organisations such as international companies, universities, government (both national and local) to develop and enhance their own training programmes and schemes.
The BRE Academy works in partnership with customers and the money that the Academy makes goes back into the cutting edge research and innovation that its parent, BRE Trust, funds.
