Investing in knowledge with the Box Academy

Putting your vision, goals and aspirations out there for everyone to see can sometimes be pretty scary. But that’s exactly what Box Architects have done.

We’re publicly committing to the continued advancement of our team – and to the development of industry specialisms – through a structured programme of continued professional development. We call it the Box Academy.

The Box Academy includes student engagement programmes, apprenticeships, innovative and forward-thinking Part 1 and Part 2 opportunities, exploration and critical thinking, and specialist technical learning. In short, it provides a framework for everyone at Box Architects to explore, develop and record their achievements in a tangible and measurable way.

Why have we done it? Well, the days are long gone when a professional CPD programme consisted of a monthly lunchtime seminar delivered as a thinly veiled sales pitch. Today, employees and clients expect more. With Box Academy, we’re able to provide opportunities to our people through a committed and structured programme of development.

We also believe that delivering exceptional professional support and advice to clients is essential. Therefore, through the Box Academy programme, ‘Practice Champions’ will develop specialist knowledge in areas such as modular construction, workplace advancement, housing innovation and of course, design excellence. As a result, our business as a whole will remain philosophically current, technically up to date and better equipped to deliver the high standards our clients expect.
