Bauer Academy Launch Workplace Learning Solutions

Bauer Academy

These special training workshops are designed to grow vibrant learning communities and transform culture within the workplace

For the first time, Bauer Academy are offering external businesses access to a premium portfolio of accessible and impactful work-based training solutions focused on the key development areas you’d expect in a leading media business: Creativity & Innovation, Content & Storytelling, Digital & Social, Leadership & Management and Wellbeing & Resilience.

Originally established as a pipeline for new talent within Bauer Media and now a government-registered training provider, Bauer Academy are focused on cultural transformation – not just skills development. Post pandemic, best practice in learning and development is evolving; the growing need to bridge digital skills gaps and build high-performing teams whilst enhancing wellbeing and growing resilience demands training solutions that empower a disparate workforce to connect, collaborate, and thrive.

To enable this Bauer Academy have established a learn-and-apply approach, creating learning cultures where latest thinking is applied in the workflow and learning communities where people are brought together across organisational boundaries.

Bauer Academy offers three bespoke ways for other businesses to benefit from this approach and tailor it for their organisation:

Select from a suite of engaging and inspirational single-impact sessions designed to grow learning cultures and generate new connections and ideas across the business
Choose from a range of short courses to create communities of learners with shared needs or interests to expand knowledge and embed new skills
Consult with subject specialists and a Programme & Design Director to co-create development solutions tailored to their workforce’s needs.

Courtnay McLeod, Bauer Academy Director said: ‘We can see in Bauer that our creative ‘learn and apply’ approach improves individual performance and creates an inclusive learning culture, where people are better connected, more innovative, and happier. It’s exciting to be taking our tried and tested solutions externally with something so different but impactful to offer.’
