Welcome to Informa Connect Academy

A new name… the same commitment to educational excellence.

Informa Connect Academy is formed by combining three existing global training brands; Informa Connect’s Training Division in the Middle East, Distance Learning in the UK and Informa Corporate Learning in Australia.

Learning and training for a better career, life and society.

We are part of Informa, a global FTSE 100 business with a network of trusted brands in specialist markets and more than 11,000 colleagues working in more than 30 countries.
