Why form an Academy?
The schools in the UK that we want to engage with are often too hard-pressed to deal with single companies.
The Academy offers those schools a compelling, one-stop contact point for the entire Real estate and Real assets industries. This makes it more likely that we can form relationships with these schools and, in turn, engage with their students via our programme of virtual and physical events.
As we aggregate our members’ resources, skills, and enthusiasm, the scope to help large numbers of students, both socially and financially, starts to become really meaningful.
Why “Real Assets?”
One of the unique aspects of the Real Assets’ and Real Estate worlds is that there is opportunity for those with a range of skills, from the academically most gifted to those whose talents lie elsewhere.
This makes us uniquely well-placed, and uniquely responsible, to reach out to students from all backgrounds and educational achievement to help, advise and explain to them these opportunities.
As an industry we are determined to widen access and increase diversity.
The Academy, through the efforts of its members, will make a major contribution to this.
