We are Archipel
As our name might suggest, Archipel is a group of learning solutions that together form a whole, just like a group of islands. With the help of our curious and friendly octopus Archi, a group of ambitious and enthusiastic professionals is dedicated to developing the new innovative solutions of tomorrow. They make a powerful team!
Archipel came about from taking a different look at learning and development. When we started out as 'learning consultants', we observed a trend that was preventing clients from rolling out an effective learning environment. More and more challenges are forcing organizations to change faster. And L&D did not offer a solution to this at that time. Change was needed.
Where are we going?
How do we do it?
Growing unlimited at Archipel
Schouten & Nelissen establishes a separate label to support organisations with streamlining learning processes, organisation and procurement.
Archipel Academy becomes its own independent company.
A year of building a unique service in collaboration with major organisations in the Netherlands: we do it differently. Our promise: to make learning more personal, less expensive and more impactful.
Archipel Academy is nominated multiple times in the categories: fastest growing scale-up (FD Gazelle), most innovative scale-up (Blue Tulip Awards) and innovative roadmap for Artificial Intelligence (AI) & learning (Netherlands Enterprise Agency)
The unique approach is working: 2020 is a year of tremendous growth. From 8 to 67 employees and from 9 to 150 great clients.
A revolution in training land: Archipel Unlimited. After a successful launch, over 7,500 employees at VodafoneZiggo have had access to unlimited learning since 2020. In the classroom, online and everything in between. All at a low fixed price per year. The future is Unlimited and is now available to any organization.
In 2022, we passed the magic mark of 100 employees. And we are continuing to grow quite literally without limits.
What we stand for
Is there just one formula for success? No, we don’t think so. But we have come a long way armed with our core values and our ‘no such thing as can’t’ mantra. And we’re quite proud of that.
Enterprising by nature
We make it personal
T.S.F. | Transparent | Sincere | Flexible
Learning is in our blood
