Gain new skills and become better qualified

Our Academy is helping us to become a more accessible and attractive local employer with a reputation for investment in staff.

It delivers our apprenticeships and graduate programme, and provides developmental opportunities for staff.

Through the Academy staff at all levels can train and achieve higher level and technical qualifications and increase their earning power. 

The Academy is there to support anyone who wants to work for L&Q, but we're also keen to encourage our residents and others living in our communities to benefit from the various opportunities available.
