About Academy Xi
With purpose; on purpose.
At AcademyXi, we’re driven by a keen sense of responsibility to improve the world around us. Inherently, everything we do is to create a ripple effect of positive change in the lives of our students, instructors, partners, and tribe. We equip our students with the skills and techniques to spark their own waves of change.
“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world” – Nelson Mandela
Technology is rapidly evolving and with this evolution, a significant skills gap has emerged. The demand for emerging design and future technology skills is insatiable and is growing. Traditional education models are not able to support this growth, which is where Academy Xi comes in.
Academy Xi teaches short, practical and skill-specific courses for people who want to up-skill and companies wanting to upgrade their capabilities in design, innovation and digital transformation. We’ve delivered a number of custom team training programs in HCD, Digital Transformation, Agile, Product Management, Digital Marketing, Agile Delivery, UI Design, Prototyping, Virtual and Augmented Realities and Blockchain.
With our dynamically changing curriculum, we teach current, in demand skills to transform individual careers whilst integrating new learnings about emerging markets and future technologies.
As well as laying the foundations to become a lifetime learning hub, we’re driven by a great purpose: Xi Act, our socially focused community pillar. With our vision to change the world through education, Academy Xi collaborates with great Social Impact organisations such as Telstra Foundation, Talent RISE, UNICEF, Remarkable, and WWF.
Although, we are a for profit company, the vision for Xi Act is that we will extend into regions that can’t access good education. Using our well developed content and passionate community to empower those in need; our sights are set on Australia, APAC and beyond.
The name Academy Xi* emerged from commitment 100% personal responsibility for the world around us. We are an education company, driven by a purpose to bring our students to life, teaching tools to help them activate themselves and create their own waves of change.
The Xi logomark has a deliberate, mathematical structure. X is variable in mathematics. In our context, this is a problem that needs to be solved. When we attach the i component to the X, this is the power of I – my personal responsibility and my commitment to solving this problem. Therefore Xi is me taking responsibility to not only identify problems in the world, but commit to being part of the solution.
* (the ‘Xi’ in Academy Xi is pronounced as ex-eye)
In everything we do at Academy Xi, we live and breathe our core values.
