Roads Academy

Roads Academy is a joint initiative from Highways England and the roads industry. It offers membership, masterclasses and leadership development programmes.

Roads Academy is a cross-sector leadership development academy. Our sector continues to face significant challenges as we gear up to deliver vital investment in UK infrastructure.

Over the last 7 years, our Roads Academy has delivered an industry-wide step change by developing leaders who can tackle the complex challenges we face. We believe it will continue to make an important contribution in the years to come.

Please visit the Roads Academy website for more information on membership, masterclasses and the development programmes, including links to the application portal.
