We are proud to have been examining more than 1200 participants since we started in 2015! Our concept enables for people to change careers at any time in their life, with the safety of an employment right after graduation.
The recruitment to our programs ensures that the students are motivated and have the right abilities for the role they will learn. We don’t care what the students did yesterday, meaning we don’t look at their CV’s, we care about what they have the abilities to do tomorrow, meaning we test their abilities! After the tests we educate the students in a 12-week intensive program with focus on the knowledge and skills that is truly needed to make sure our students are productive from day one at the job! After graduation the students become junior consultants, employed by Academic Work working on assignments at different clients. This means our unique concept in three parts enables for people to switch careers while the companies can find the skills they need, and then they can grow together!
Our views on teaching and learning and ways of working is described in our pedagogical platform, ”The Academy Way”.The core of our methods is to work with short high tempo lectures, practical problem solving and constant feedback dialog between students and teachers so accelerate the learning in an efficient way!
