Professional Practice Academy

The Professional Practice Academy is the formal education route to qualification for architects. The main programme is a fully-funded Part 3 qualification for architects in our London studio. However we cover equivalent qualifications across different geographies. In addition, we offer support for certifications that may be relevant to specific roles.

Continuous Professional Development (CPD)

Aside from our formal CPD programme, we support the creative process with motivational talks, inspiring lectures, conferences, language improvement and creative events including life drawing, terrarium building and origami workshops.

Benefits and Wellbeing

We recognise that our achievements can’t happen without our people. This is why we provide comprehensive benefits and wellbeing initiatives. This is supported by our wellbeing framework.



This includes our annual discretionary bonus scheme, life assurance, opportunities to join our company pension scheme, attractive discounts and enhanced family friendly leave. We also provide expert advice, education and guidance that give our people financial peace of mind.



We offer a medical advisory service for employees and family members facing critical health situations, providing counselling and referral services through the Employee Assistance Program (EAP). We have trained Mental Health First Aiders across the practice who are always available to provide support and guidance to their colleagues, awareness events and workshops to reduce stigmas and enact positive change.



To encourage our people to live an active and healthy lifestyle, we offer discounted gym memberships and classes; on our London Campus we have initiatives including weekly yoga classes, massages, therapies and health checks and dedicated wellbeing spaces.  



We believe in creating an environment to allow our people to flourish and achieve their full potential. We come together to collaborate and celebrate achievements. We have shared spaces to support informal meetings and discussions and Practice events. There are numerous sports teams that meet throughout the year and our summer and winter parties.
