We’re a training provider unlike any other because we are part of one of the world’s biggest media businesses.

Bauer Academy is Bauer Media’s in-house training provider, offering work-based learning solutions and apprenticeships to over 60 external clients, as well as to Bauer’s people across 14 countries. Originally established as a pipeline for new talent, we are now a government-registered learning and development Centre of Excellence with a team of passionate industry experts.

We offer a range of training solutions that enable teams to connect, collaborate and thrive. As a government-registered training provider we provide access to training fully funded by the apprenticeship levy but also design and deliver unique training projects in partnership with private and public sector clients.

We offer a range of engaging and inspirational single-impact workshops that generate new connections and ideas across business as well as a range of short courses that create communities of learners around shared needs. We also offer a co-creation service, designing development solutions tailored to your people, values and culture.

Our portfolio of accessible and impactful work-based learning solutions is focused on the development areas you would expect from a leading media business: Creativity & Innovation, Content & Storytelling, Digital & Social, Leadership & Management and Wellbeing & Resilience.

Delivering apprenticeships and training from inside the industry allows us to provide impactful programmes to develop entry level talent and upskill and reskill people at all career stages from mid-level managers to senior executives.
To suit your team’s culture and schedule, we deliver training via interactive remote delivery or face-to-face in a location of your choice. Regardless of format, we guarantee practical and engaging learning experiences with long-lasting impact.

We focus on work-based learning, adopting a ‘learn, apply, reflect’ philosophy that creates learning cultures where latest thinking is applied in the workflow, and learning communities where people are brought together across organisational boundaries.

Our approach is proven to improve individual and team performance whilst creating strong learning communities and cultures.

We are proud to support disabled learners and learners with neurodevelopmental differences. Some examples of neurodevelopmental differences are ADHD, Autism, Dyspraxia and Dyslexia.

If a learner has additional needs or requires personalisation of materials or teaching approaches during their time on programme, they will be offered access to a dedicated Learning Support Executive (LSE).

Our LSE can liaise with the Programme Lead on adjustments required throughout the programme and liaise with the apprenticeship End Point Assessment Organisation (EPAO).

The learner may choose to declare the need for support at the application stage, but they can also disclose this to their Programme Lead at any stage during their learning.

Some of the ways in which we can support our learners are:

  • Extra time for assessments and exams
  • Regular rest breaks
  • Different forms of communication e.g. verbal followed up with written material
  • Different formats, e.g. coloured paper, larger text fonts, text in bold
  • Receiving workshop content prior to the workshop
  • Time management support, e.g. regular 1:1 calls, prioritising tasks/commitments through a timetable of key deadlines
  • Additional support calls with Programme Leads
  • Time-extensions for deadlines
  • Workshop recordings

Please be aware that any Additional Learning Needs Support information that a learner declares would be shared with key members of the delivery team (such as their Programme Lead, the Learning Support Executive and our Quality Team who monitor our provision and support for all learners) to allow us to best support the learner through their journey. Only the details needed to support the learner on their journey are shared, all personal information is kept separately.

Bauer Academy do not directly employ their apprentices. We are Bauer Media’s in-house training provider and offer apprenticeship training and other Learning and Development to Bauer Media’s people.

We also work in partnership with external employers to provide training to their people, whether they’re new starts or as an upskill piece.

We have a duty of care to our learners and all members of the Academy team have a critical part to play in keeping learners safe.

We have a dedicated safeguarding team who oversee and respond to any concerns about the wellbeing or safety of our learners. Concerns can be raised either by a member of our delivery team or by a learner. Please refer to our Information and Guidance Card for Learners to find key safeguarding contacts.

PREVENT is a UK Government initiative to prevent vulnerable people from being radicalised into involvement with acts of terrorism. You can report any concerns via Bauer Academy’s safeguarding channels or call the anti-terrorist hotline on 0800 789 321.

We fully support the UK Government’s 5 key community values, which are democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs. These values form an integral part of our code of conduct expectations, where all learners are treated with dignity and respect. As a registered education provider, Bauer Academy has a duty to promote these values across our programme design and delivery.
