Our HQ is situated in a large glass building known locally as “the old IBM building”, which is shared with other businesses. When you arrive at 1000 Lakeside, enter through the glass front and check in as a visitor at the main reception desk. They will then issue you a pass and direct you to the lift and stairs in the West Wing to get to where we are situated on the second floor.

When you arrive at the Academy, check in at our reception which is shared with a working clinic. Your trainer or another member of our team will greet you and take you through to our student lounge where you can settle yourself in with a drink, meet your fellow students and store any valuable possessions in our secure lockers before your training begins.

Training Day

Training typically starts at 10am and finishes around 4pm, with a lunch break. There are some variations depending on the course and timescales may vary depending on how many students are in your class on the day.

A lot of our courses will see you gaining practical experience from day 1 and in most cases, we will provide models for you to treat.


As well as our student lounge within the Academy, you can also find a range of amenities within the 1000 Lakeside complex including a café, a Starbucks and a Subway. There is also a lot of outdoor seating at the front of the building should you wish to get some fresh air during your break from training. As the name ‘lakeside’ suggests, we are situated right by a lake and it’s home to a gaggle of geese.
