JL Academy and Logistics Hub
Logistics & Office
The JL Academy is an educational “hands on” skilled based working centre that will bridge the gap between scholars (primary & secondary) students (college & universities) with industry and business.
The JL Academy will continue to work and expand their outreach with the local schools in the regions in which we serve. They believe early introduction to share the benefits of skill working is fundamental to industry, engagement and educating scholars highlights the opportunities that are available to them. The JL Academy approach shares knowledge and the benefits of what a career in skilled workforce can provide for their future.
JL Academy collaborate and engage with local colleges and universities to support the curriculum delivery of the institution, strengthening the educational experience with a hands-on approach. This enhances the students experience providing a full ‘one stop shop – turnkey’ with understanding to problem solving and solutions.
When we engage with our academic partners through college lectures we are told that the passion, insight and drive we deliver to students is valuable to their work and more importantly is seen as inspirational to the learner.
