Haines Watts Academy

We developed our academy in 2014 to create a virtual place for introducing modular development programmes to compliment our existing technical training and development options.

Haines Watts Academy takes training and learning and development to a new level:  from Haines Watts perspective it offers a range of modular learning options which allow our team to understand how best to use their technical skills, how to better understand themselves and those they work with, and to practise these skills for the benefit of our clients and the wider business.  From the individuals perspective it gives them a rounded programme of improvement where they meet and work with colleagues from around the UK and that set them in good stead for their future career. 

Partner & Director development programme

We run a variety of externally facilitated workshops for our business leaders to help them stay at their best and further develop their business and personal development skills.  We love that we have a culture where ideas are welcomed from everyone and where continual learning is something that everyone takes an active part in.
