TX Academy is an initiative of the Tamedia Group in Switzerland. With our experience running some of the biggest mobile and web platforms in Switzerland, such as Homegate, Jobs.ch, tutti.ch, Ricardo and Doodle.com we built TX Academy to bring digital natives the best and most up-to-date classroom-based training that can deliver immediate benefit and improve the way we work.
TX Academy began with the idea that we have many great people working at the different Tamedia companies and we can do more to share that knowledge by bringing people together.
TX Academy was launched in June 2019 at the TX Conference as a minimum viable product … we only invest in organising and running a course when enough people have shown interest in a course idea. By letting demand drive course planning, we have a higher confidence that we’re providing education on topics people really want to learn about.
In particular we focus on learning for digital specialists, such as software engineers, designers, product managers, digital marketeers, who struggle to find relevant education material in Switzerland today.
Many TX Academy courses are taught by senior professionals like you and me, after they went through our “train the trainer” program themselves, which supports them in designing and delivering their course.
If you’re interested in teaching yourself, feel free to pitch your idea and we’ll get back to you.
As course ideas are identified, the course goes through basic stages…
Course Selection process, from pitch to “go-live”
While courses are aimed, first and foremost, at staff within the Tamedia group of companies, anyone can attend. Simply complete the registration form and we’ll take care of the rest.
Courses are priced to cover costs, rather than generate profit. Prices vary per course, depending on who’s giving the course, how long the course is and the cost of facilities to run the course (e.g. renting a coworking space).
Billing is handled automatically – just provide us with your company billing address or Tamedia internal cost code, and we’ll take care of it.
