The Academy is a cross-departmental opportunity, open to all and is run in partnership with I AM Impact who are experts in Executive Leadership and Development.

Combining our coaching and training expertise, and board level experience with TLA’s energy, innovation and high growth track record will create a stimulating, challenging and fun learning environment for us all”. The programme will run for 12 months and consists of research, action learning and project-based modules covering the following subject areas: The TLA Way, Leadership, Marketing Strategy, Finance, Innovation and Managing Projects. Anton Hanley, Founder and CEO of TLA said: “We have amazing talent within our organisation and I am incredibly proud of each and every member of our team for the effort, commitment and ingenuity they bring to their work every day. Establishing the FLP is our way of saying that we value you and we want you to be the best you can possibly be so here is our support and investment in you as a future leader of our business.” The FLP is a win-win-win for us all, our people grow and develop, our business develops leadership talent from within and our Industry develops visionary leaders for the future. The programme will also be supported by senior executive ‘mentors’ from within the business who will be responsible for elements of the course design and delivery based upon their own functional expertise and leadership experience. This will ensure that we create the best climate for skills development, knowledge transfer and innovative thinking that directly supports TLA’s business strategy.
