Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world
– Nelson Mandela
With purpose, on purpose
We are a community-led and purpose-driven education company. Our mission here at Academy Xi is to transform the world through education by empowering a community of changemakers with the skills to create waves of change and build a future-ready career or business.
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.
Empowering people to shape their future
“We do not need magic to change the world, we carry all the power we need inside ourselves already—we have the power to imagine better.”—JK Rowling
Technology is rapidly evolving and creates a significant skills gap in the marketplace. The demand for people with design and emerging technology skills is insatiable and ever growing.
Traditional education models are not able to match the pace of technological change. Their approach fails to meet industry and employers’ need to hire people with hands-on experience, who can hit the ground running.
This is where we come in. Academy Xi is our answer to the insatiable demand for work-ready talent across all industries. We teach innovative, practical, industry relevant, in-demand courses across Human-Centred Design (Graphic Design, UX, UI, and Service Design), Business and Marketing (Digital Marketing, Product Management and Data Analytics).
By upskilling individuals and teams, we empower them with the tools and confidence to stay ahead of the industry curve, shape their own future, and transform their lives.
Decoding our brand name and logo
Our name (pronounced “ex-eye”) and logo are a reflection of the critical role we play in shaping our own lives and the world around us. Our script for the future isn’t written and, with the right tribe in our corner, we can shape our future while improving the world around us.
Our logo has a deliberate, mathematical structure. In mathematics, “X” is a variable, a problem that needs to be solved. And “i” stands for my personal responsibility and power to solve this problem. Brought together, “Xi” reflects my commitment to not only identifying problems in the world, but also becoming part of the solution.
Empower the tribe
We’re united in our mission to care for, and empower each other. We practice empathy, patience and perceptiveness to empower the tribe.
To achieve our mission to change the world through education, we’re an ecosystem built around four pillars.
Our DNA is riddled with purpose. We create a positive, lasting impact in the world by partnering with NFP. We drive diversity with our scholarships, and strive to make the future of work available to all, regardless of circumstances.
We empower the next generation of changemakers: the children of today who will become the leaders of tomorrow. Through workshops and events, we develop children’s love for learning, and equip them with essential digital skills to create ripples for years to come.
