See what some of our students have to say about their courses…
I’m currently studying the cupcake making & baking course and it is amazing so far. I’m really enjoying it and it has so much helpful information.
It covers everything you need to know and is actually enjoyable reading… I am very pleased I enrolled I would definitely recommend…I’m a mum of 3 aged 5, 2, and 1 and time is challenging most days but this course provides enough time so I can juggle both.
I am excited to start my next module. the course is also worth the non-discounted price. I will be doing more courses after this one.
I had been interested in learning about face painting as I am a makeup artist myself. I decided to do this course as a cheaper alternative to going to a school to learn.
This course takes you through all the tips and techniques of face painting from starting your own business to essentials for your kit and popular face painting designs which are easy to follow. The instructor is very clear and breaks down the face painting into several steps.
Since completing this course I have been face painting for children’s parties and other events earning good money for my services. Thank you for this course it has been fantastic!
My dream has come true. Eventually I found this online course after searching for years in my area where none of the colleges provided it and it is necessary to get my dream job.
I got an incredible discount and what I like the best I got a lifetime access to the course, so there is no rush and I can revisit any time to revise as well.
Excellent support and immediate response to emails, I am very pleased. The course material is written in an easily understandable way, no hidden fees and mobile friendly so I can learn anywhere.
Amazing course, easy to understand and very straight forward. It gives you a chance to review previous modules, also you are able to take notes and save them in your course profile, where you can check them at any time.
Along with the course, you get rewards for completing your course modules. It opens the door to a chance of doing something you like or changing your career, also for people that just want to get new skills in different areas.
Do it at your own pace from your own home, I usually do it on my days off. Totally worth it, I recommend it.
I completed the international massage diploma months ago and love to keep revisiting modules. I learn something new each and every time because there’s such a wealth of information presented in a beautifully user-friendly way with excellent videos to accompany each massage technique.
I’m already a working massage therapist, who enjoys attending short courses to up-skill and be able to provide my clients with more value. And ‘The New Skills Academy’ massage course is simply one of the best investments I’ve made in my ongoing professional development.
I’m now a whizz at facial massage (something they didn’t teach at massage school) and Lomi-Lomi too! Highly recommended!
It was great, lots of knowledge and able to learn at my own pace was fantastic, and that I have access to it after completing exam is great too!
I am excited to start further learning and will likely try another course provided from this website! Exam was easy and straight forward, and provided you with the questions you did not get correct so that you are able to further study.
I have recommended this site to friends and family, and will continue learning! Thank you so much New Skills Academy! You are an amazing site and I am grateful!
Having worked in schools for years and having a recently diagnosed son this course has opened my eyes to the world of Autism. The course is both informative, easy to work through and enables the learner to gain full understanding about all aspects of Autism.
Through completing this course I have gained employment supporting a child with Autism and I have been able to implement many strategies to assist both my pupil and also my own son.
I would highly recommend this course if you would like to gain a richer understanding of Autism and would like to study online and at your own pace.
Great course lots to learn and apply very informative, as a pharmacy assistant this course has given me more knowledge and confidence to provide great services to my customers.
Assignments were easy to follow and I would recommend anyone to study a course at New Skills Academy as you can do them in your own time.
Having a certificate not only boosts my confidence, but also shows my employers that i have learnt new skills and have gained more information that is useful for my area of work.
Thanks very much New Skills Academy, I will study with you again!
As the Head of HR, I always have to keep up to date on all law. This course was brilliant and helped me brush up on some areas I hadn’t worked on for some time. Really great value and also very user friendly – brilliant purchase!
For me personally, I have a Masters in HR Management and I love to keep developing and learning and this course was a brilliant way to satisfy my hunger for learning but I could also fit it in with my full time role – win win!
Another positive edition to anyone’s CV – would recommend to anyone even if you are just curious about your employee rights!
I am so far really enjoying the course. Information is really well presented and tests a great recap to information covered. I also think the Notes tool is a good addition, however, the saving seems a little unstable so I have lost notes on a couple of the modules.
I figured that I needed to save prior to taking the test, but had selected a picture and as there was no close option, I clicked back and lost the notes I had taken. Apart from that, I am really enjoying the format and am finding the information easy to retain.
Great beginners course easy to follow and get a certificate to show current or future employers ?
I highly recommend this course for beginners or as a refresher course. It is also beneficial for self-employed persons as it gives in depth knowledge of how to get the most out of the sage 50 package.
I am going to use this course to negotiate a pay rise. The certificate is very important to show you have an in depth knowledge of the sage 50 package which most accounts offices and small businesses use on a daily basis.
I am happy I chose this course to show my employer my skills.
I use Sage 50 every day at work, but wanted a qualification on my CV to reflect this. I thought this course was well set out and very informative.
I really appreciated that the course is split into 10 modules as this made it very easy for me to stop and come back to when convenient. I found with work and 4 kids this was very helpful and with a good feature that it saved the place where I was so you could return at any time.
I must admit I was very surprised that I learnt new things and really glad I took the course. I would recommend this course to anyone thinking of using Sage for the first time or like me already use it daily. I really appreciated the fact that I used my tablet while taking the course.
I must be honest at 36 years old, this was my first course taken online, I was generally really surprised how easy to it was to order/book on line. Overall I felt this was a very positive experience for me I not only gained a qualification, I also gained confidence and have now book up 2 more courses.
Quick and easy, can learn in your own time which was great. I have an 8-week old baby and managed to complete with no pressure. Everything was broken down so well and helpful videos along the way.
Will be taking more courses with New Skills Academy, I wish I did the course years ago. I have the experience in waxing but because I gave up my college course to have my baby, I don’t have the time to go back and I was close to qualifying.
I took this course and passed without all the hassle of going back for a year. Thank you, New Skills Academy.
The waxing course was very easy to follow and full of all the information needed. Fantastic easy step by step videos and diagrams.
Great help for setting up your own business as this course gives you all the correct information and procedures to follow.
I work from home offering a variety of other treatments, including eye lash extensions, threading and tanning now having this treatment is an added bonus… and very happy clients.
Would definitely recommend to others who are looking to follow in the same direction as me to broaden their treatments to offer for their own clients ?
I loved every aspect of this online digital marketing course. The modules were well constructed and offered up a wealth of information on the subject.
I found myself learning many new things, such as the best practices for implementing an online marketing campaign, whether through social media, email marketing, or otherwise.
Passing this course has gone a long way to helping me with my online business routine.
I sought to improve my efforts at marketing my work and now, thanks to New Skills Academy, I’ve been able to. Thank you so much to New Skills Academy for this amazing course.
Website is easy to navigate; three main areas: beginners, intermediate and advanced are very well structured; videos and exercises are short, and interactive which is convenient if you study on the go; not boring at all.
You can always come back to the particular topic if it is not clear or you want to refresh your memory. Highly recommend this Excel course if you are beginner or you just want to become an expert in certain parts of this programme.
The price is just right for the quality of course you get. I believe my skills improved a lot since starting this course
I started this course not too long ago but I am already learning so much! The course content is extremely interesting and informative!
I get excited thinking about what is going to be in each module! I would recommend this course to everybody with a passion for makeup without hesitation! I love the convenience of being able to do this course wherever I am.
Also, the fact that there is no time limit for the course is a plus, this means I can take my time and take notes as I go, without feeling rushed to complete each module fast.
This Makeup Diploma course I wanted to have almost half of my life, from when I was a kid. I really enjoyed studying and was really happy to finish this Makeup Diploma course.
Liked videos in modules, PDF’s were easy to save. Not only that I learned new tips on how to do makeup, I also learned how to deal with marketing and advertising for my future business.
I’m sure that will not be the last course that I finished. And I will highly recommend to my friends to this online tutoring as it is great way to gain knowledge. Thank you.
Helpful tips learned during the course and many fun facts. I will be completing 6 more courses after this one. Such a great learning experience. The knowledge in each package is phenomenal!
Each course is broken down into modules to make it easy to break down the course for short breaks and as soon as you sign back in again it remembers where you left off in your course. How clever!
I would highly recommend this course to anyone looking to brush up their knowledge and skills. Best of luck!
100% Recommended. New Skills Academy is the best!
At age 44, I took a notion to start a new career, so I booked a Travel & Tourism online course with New Skills Academy.
I was actually pretty nervous when I looked at the modules as it’s been years since I studied!
I was pleasantly surprised at how well the course flowed and how uncomplicated it was. The presentation of the course was easy to read and understand.
When I got to the final test, I was nervous, but had no need to be. It was a general test of knowledge and I passed with 70%. I feel proud!
New Skills Academy is a lovely system to work with. Easy to sign up and make an account. Modules are clearly defined and are packed of information. Really great, has lots of information on lots of topics.
Great foundation for anyone looking into this area of employment or self employed as has great ideas and advice to build on. Have attended face to face courses which have much less information than this.
Lovely bite size quizzes on some modules which help to understand and enforce the contact of the bigger modules. End exam has a nice mixture of topics covered in the course. And has an option to re-sit if needed.
I was pleased to find the course I wanted at such a reasonable price. The system is really easy to use and the information given is clear and precise.
I like the fact you can print each module as I like to make hand written notes when studying. The course has provided me with a better understanding of the construction industry, even with all the reading it kept me interested throughout.
The customer service was prompt and very helpful, and I love that you can take your own time in completing the course.
I look forward to completing new courses in the future, Thank You!
I really enjoyed the course. I found it very informative and straightforward.
It provided me with all facts and details about payroll, how to run it smoothly and how to communicate with HMRC. I like the format of the written information, it selects vital facts to remember and highlights the most important information that should be learnt.
Even with all the reading required, it kept me interested during whole course. The exam covers everything that should be learnt during the course and the diploma looks professional. I have learnt a lot. Thank you! I will return for some more courses.
Very excellent learning and very good work. I am really enjoying it and growth in my mind set. If you have a methodical approach to your work, and you’re interested in Law, then becoming a Legal Secretary could be the perfect career move for you.
The main role of a Legal Secretary is to provide administrative support and services for Lawyers, Solicitors and Legal Executives. It is their job to ensure that an office runs smoothly and efficiently, enabling their employers to focus on serving their clients.
It is not a necessary requirement to have a degree to become a Legal Secretary. However, it is recommended to have some qualifications specific to the industry.
The Marketing Diploma Course was laid out in such a way that it was easy to understand and work through and the modular approach meant I was able to complete the course in a way which suited me.
The New Skills Academy website is easy to use and the user dashboard provides all the information you need to start, continue and complete your studies.
Each module in the course was detailed and broken down into manageable chunks, with downloadable worksheets to test knowledge at the end of each module making sure you have the understanding to progress.
Overall, an easy way to develop new skills!
Absolutely amazing course.. I had so much fun learning with New Skills Academy. This course was so informative, set out really well and I learned so much. It was great that with two young children under 3, I still managed to learn and pass my course that I’m so happy about.
Also fantastic that for a small fee I am having my certificate sent out to me which is a great option for me. All that’s left for me to do now is practice practice and practice. New Skills Academy have given me the confidence to start my venture as a Face Painter. Thank you so much. Amy xx
Excellent course was very informative and I thoroughly enjoyed completing it. Compiled of perfect size modules – not too long or short, to the point and excellent value for money.
Great idea to be able to print off each module to not only keep but to be able to refer to for the final exam at the end. Would highly recommend anyone who owns a pet of any type as all the information is relative all round. Great for anyone setting up a business involving pets just as much as a pet owner.
Course run very well and easy to access.
Helpful tips learned during the course and many fun facts. I will be completing 3 more courses after this one. Such a great learning experience. The knowledge in each package is phemonimal!
Each course is broken down into modules to make it easy to break down the course for short breaks and as soon as you sign back in again it remembers where you left off in your course. How clever!
I would highly recommend this course to anyone looking to brush up their knowledge and skills. Best of luck!
This course is absolutely brilliant for someone like me that has a busy working life – the modules are chunked into bite sized pieces and are really simple and straightforward to use.
It is easy to dip in and out of and pick up from where you left off – I was certainly glad I chose to pick all 3 levels – I am quite competent with Excel but I have also picked up new pieces of information from the beginners’ modules as well as really developing my skills with the more advanced information.
It has also meant I have had a really good refresh with parts of Excel that I haven’t used for a long time. I advise anyone who is considering skipping straight to the Intermediate or Advanced courses to go for this option – it really has proved excellent value for money!
An excellent course with up to date thinking based on good research about canine behaviours. I particularly liked the style of teaching. Suitable for all levels and had just the right touch.
I found it stimulating, encouraging and above all, not patronising. It will be very helpful to me on my road as an animal Reiki therapist working with a wide variety of breeds in a rescue centre. I am now much more aware of calming signals and subtle signals that the dog is ready to accept contact.
I would recommend it to anyone wanting to enhance their understanding and communication with dogs.
This course thoroughly improved my knowledge of Microsoft Outlook. I found the modules on meetings, appointments and tasks the most informative. I’m sure these will all have a direct impact on my day to day working life.
If you do not already have a basic understanding of Outlook then the first few modules in particular will be very helpful to you as they cover the fundamentals extremely well.
There is also more advanced options for those who are at that level.
The course is very easy to follow, the tutorial videos are extremely well put together and you can learn at your own pace.
I undertook the Data Protection Certificate course in May 2017. I found the course to have a very in depth amount of detail on Data Protection and the law and legislation around it. It also went into detail on the new Data Protection Act coming in 2018.
I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a course with value for money and also to bulk up their knowledge and perhaps perusing a career in IT or security. The course is audited and comes with a certificate on completion which you are able to print yourself or have one sent out to you for a small fee.
Absolutely loved this course!! I am very happy with my experience in completing this online course with New Skills Academy.
It was an easy process and their website is very easy to get around. No stress over time limits. I worked through the course at my own pace, and from the comforts of my own home.
Very informative and loved the worksheet after each module which gave me a chance to really think about the work needed for the final test and gave me a chance to really understand each module.
I will definitely be putting what I have learned from the course into practice within our office.
This short course was actually very informative and interesting, and learned far more than what you can read on the internet. The modules are an excellent way to learn, as you can complete each module in your own time.
I feel as though I’ve learned a lot from this course and would highly recommend it to anyone interested in starting a career in alternative medicine or as a starter in your own business. This certificate can lead onto other courses in this field.
The customer service was excellent, quick and easy to apply online and even better, you can pay by PayPal.
I cannot recommend this course enough, and after seeing the standard of my current course, I can only assume others are to the same high standard.
One of the first things you will notice about the course is just how informative it is. The information given is in depth and intelligently written. I felt within the first 15 minutes of starting, I had a genuine understanding of the requirements of my course and the ways in which it would benefit me.
I have been working in hotels now for a few years and have made the step forward into a management role. This course has given me great confidence in my own abilities and is helping me understand just how much work goes into managing a hotel.
I cannot recommend this course enough! If you’re thinking of taking the plunge, perhaps making a career change or just starting out like me, then this course is the platform you need to boost your success.
It was a very informative and thorough course. And was made easy to learn and understand different aspects of Hotel Industry and Management issues through day-to-day examples.
It not only enlightened me with Hotel Management but Management in general as well.
I will keep these precious tips and notes handy to refer back to them when needed. In a nutshell, money well spent and I will come back for more courses in future.
The beauty of this course was how easy yet composite this course was. And the manner in which the notes are written made it very easy for me to carry on grasping knowledge from the beginning to the end.
Very interactive and quick to complete, highly recommended to anyone that is looking to further their knowledge. An excellent online course for CV’s and developing your skills. Fantastic for the money and worth taking time to complete with online help and notes to guide you through it.
New Skills Academy have recently won two high profile awards and after taking their online course you know the reason behind it with high quality course structure and accessibility.
All their courses have an excellent pass rate so it is suitable for everyone whether you are academic or not, which I find very good.
The course was very well structured and I have a clear idea from all subjects. All the subjects have examples and highlight very important information during the course.
It is suitable for my needs in improving my qualification and doing an online course which transmits all necessary information.
The material is very relevant to the day-to-day activities in a bank and show me how many options I have available inside the bank industry and which qualifications I need. I am very happy with it and I recommend everyone who has some curiosity to learn more about the banking sector.
Amazing course, very insightful and surprisingly current. I work in the healthcare industry and this course answered a lot of my questions about the pharmaceutical field and the future relationship between the NHS and the Pharmacies.
What an innovative way to learn. Congrats everyone who put this together. I’m now hungry for further studies. The cost is next to nothing and I would definitely recommend the service to anyone. Actually, I plan to inform my colleagues about my success and will forward them here to try this out and see if they’ll be impressed as I am.
This was an absolute joy. Credit to New Skills Academy for offering this.
I have just completed the ADHD Diploma.
I found the course extremely interesting and informative, especially for parents with children who have ADHD or people who work with children with the condition. It has changed my perspective on the condition a lot. I have therefore recommended this course to others.
The course was very well structured and easy to navigate. The wording used was simple to understand yet effective. The test was multiple choice which I liked and you are able to access your certificate straight after successful completion of the test which I thought was great.
I will definitely be purchasing another course from New Skills Academy.
This course was easy to read. I could take as long as I needed and go at my own pace and I was surprised to find that this was an accredited course recognised by my employer. It does what it says on the tin.
I would recommend to anybody wanting to gain knowledge in this area, to add to your education section on your CV or even just for fun! The certificate now looks nice in my achievements folder.
I would most definitely enrol in this way of learning again when I am ready to learn another new subject.
Very interesting topics, I feel like I have expanded my knowledge and have more of an understanding and can use the techniques I have learnt professionally. I feel more confident in my ability!
I enjoyed the videos of the makeup application and thought the flow of the course was very well structured which made it easy to follow. It had me excited to do more and complete next stages as it was in bite size chunks.
I am very happy with the programme thoroughly enjoyed it I wish it was longer so I could learn more. Thank you for the course!
I was extremely worried at first that it wouldn’t be what I want in a course but the course is honestly absolutely amazing! It’s made to be really enjoyable, fun and easy to complete and best of all in your own time.
I could not recommend New Skills Academy any more! It’s now gave me something more to put on to my CV and get my career started in the area I’d love to be in for the rest of my life. Thank you so much for helping me reach my goals and achieve my dreams!
I’ve recommended to all of my friends and would also recommend to anyone looking into doing a course. Go for it you won’t regret it!
WOW, I really learned so much more than I thought I would, this is an amazing course with useful insights and guidance. It was really well laid out, user friendly and a joy to participate in, even if you don’t want to start a business.
Any animal lover or owner would benefit from taking this course, as it covers so many aspects, from simple ways to handle a variety of different types of pets, grooming feeding and first aid as well.
It’s absolutely brilliant, I feel that I am now ready and prepared to start on my new journey. Thank you!
This course was excellent, detailed and enjoyable. It gave me lots of information and helped me develop my skills and knowledge to assist facilitate learning of students that have special educational needs. It outlined the main conditions that fall into the categories of SEN and a detailed explanation of them.
This course also gave me lots of ideas on how to assist learners and the confidence of how to develop my teaching resources. It also highlighted the relevant legislation covering special educational needs and gave me important information regarding the roles and responsibilities of the SENCO and the teacher in supporting learners.
I now feel more confident that I will be able to support these students better.
The course was very useful. It covers everything you need starting from the introduction to the comments. Everything was explained in a way to understand easily each one module of it. I really liked the pivot table module.
It is so helpful, don’t know how I lived until now without it at work. It is just amazing. I am so glad that I started the course and I am proud of myself that I did it in a such a short time.
Thank you for this. Can’t wait to start the next one – intermediate level! Hopefully I will pass it. And who knows – maybe after that I will pass the advanced one.
I really enjoyed this course. It allowed me to go at my own pace, completing modules in my lunch breaks or at home and you can do the modules as many times as you like which suited me.
The modules were explained well, included a clear step by step guide with a video and a spreadsheet to practice on which allowed me to learn the content in different ways. The module content was extremely valuable and taught me how to understand Excel which will lead to saving time in future projects needing Excel.
This course not only includes the very basics but explains some core Excel processes. I recommend this course to all abilities and anyone who needs to use Excel.
I am a hands-on learner, nothing goes in when I am bored blasted. This course was fantastic, the material for each module is provided in writing, which can be printed and read wherever you are in in your own time, all devices compatible and a short video showing how to do it using Excel.
You can re-visit each module however many times you want, even after completing the exam. The exam is totally content driven (what they teach is what they ask).
This is a great site to learn and I will be recommending it to everyone, Do a course…
Absolutely fantastic! I would definitely recommend doing this course if you are a beginner, and I would also say that you definitely do not have to worry as all three learning types are covered! It is also great to have the ability to get in touch with a tutor if stuck, especially if you haven’t got someone at home or work to help you understand something!
If I hadn’t of already completed this course and chosen to start the next level up, I would happily do this course again. However, I would recommend this course, even more so for someone who is trying to learn for a career change! Exactly what I did and because of this very reason, and feared that it would expensive to change my career, and was amazed how easy and cheap it was!
Excellent course, easy to follow, excellent tutorial videos that set examples out very simply and are easy to pause or fast forward meaning you can go through this course at totally your own speed.
The work sheets are very good as the examples from the video are all replicated clearly and you can skip back and forth between the worksheet and the video if you don’t remember something completely the first time. When you are confident with the subject, you move yourself on to the next one
I love that I can do this completely in my own time and am sure that at the end of the course I will be confident in my own ability to use Excel.
I found the course very useful. I loved every minute of the course, the layout is clear and very easy to use. The take notes section is very useful, handy if your pen runs out of ink, which mine did.
The information was easy to read and follow. The pictures and videos was laid out very well, which are easy to follow. The PDF was great to follow and great to have for after the course to refresh your memory. Perfect for balloon modellers.
Thank you so much for the course. I have now added another certificate to my CV and customer like the idea of the certificate ? Thank you again.
I decided to take this course to help me understand my 8 year old son with ADHD and ASD.
I managed to join the course and find the site with ease and after making my payment it was easy to start to find my documents and download my test sheets after the relevant modules.
I found other links which I am yet to explore further and can see me contacting a few of the organisations mentioned. I now am to put some strategies to the test.
The information was useful and I learnt a lot and got a certificate at the end. Thank you.
New Skills Academy is a fab place to go to if you’re wanting to start a course and further your career. Being a mother to 2 young children it is hard to find the time to complete a course and juggle life… thank goodness for New Skills Academy.
They put no pressure on you to finish your course by a certain time. They allow you to take your time and really understand what you’re learning. It’s easy to use, there is help when needed, a very modern design making it great for anyone to use. Fab place to learn.
I found this course very easy reading and thoroughly understandable. It was very well put together and you could always go back into the exact page that you left. It was very easy to leave notes and could always go back into them for a refresher.
This course was very well thought threw and easy to move through each section. The self-assessment at the end of each section was very helpful and refreshes key elements that you needed. To be able to print this off was good as it provided a guide for yourself.
I would recommend to my friends.
This online course gave me the opportunity to plan my study time around the rest of my day, instead of the other way around. I was able to study and work when I was at my peak energy, whether that’s early morning or late at night.
The course material was always accessible online, so there was no need to schedule special trips to a library either. It makes a good option for everyone who needs to keep the balance between their work and family commitments.
Simple and understandable language. I really recommend to anyone who would like to improve qualifications.
I found the course straight forward and easy to follow.
It’s given me a great understanding of first aid procedures and has outlined some important aspects of looking after pets in general. It paid particular attention to the description of the CPR procedure. I will come in very useful.
The multi choice test at the end is easy to complete and I found the worksheets at the end of each module very helpful to outline the important aspects.
I look forward to completing many more courses on offer to help progress my new dog walking and pet care business.
A super user-friendly website, with very pertinent course content. Truly enjoyed the study material and the pace at which I could study was really great. I was delighted to receive my Diploma.
I had some technical problems along the way and contacted your student support team a couple of times and found them to be most helpful and the response time/turnaround was so quick.
I have also signed up to do the Events Planning Diploma and will definitely be studying further through your Academy. Once again a huge thank you – your support team are really helpful, friendly and efficient!!
New Skills Academy is a great site to use for learning as it is easy to follow, the layout of the course work makes is very easy to understand and good to make notes from.
I am thoroughly enjoying doing my course and would definitely recommend this site to anyone who is looking to complete a course online.
Another good thing about doing a course on New Skills Academy is being able to apply for an NUS card as it gets you amazing deals on all sorts of shops and online stores that not a lot of sites would offer whilst completing a course online.
I rate this course very highly as this is a very in-depth informative online course that increased my knowledge in Marketing and has given me plenty of useful information to apply to my work.
It had a good framework of information followed by a worksheet so that you could test the knowledge that you’ve just learned. It provided a great deal of information broken down into easy to digest sections and was good value for money as well.
I would definitely recommend this course to others and I know that my brother has taken another course using this website also.
I am looking to start, at some point, a career in the Painting and Decorating industry either working for an employer or myself.
This was a really interesting and surprisingly in-depth course. A good starting point for me to eventually go on to study on a level 1 Construction course at college that will include Painting and Decorating.
I wasn’t sure how good the course was going to be as it was online but I was definitely surprised at how much information was included. Really helpful for me and something I can look back at. Thank you New Skills Academy.
I found this course extremely beneficial. I was finding it difficult to appropriately respond to colleagues who requested tasks of me, that I didn’t feel that was my job to do.
Now I have completed this course, I feel able to begin testing what I have learnt in real life, I have already started changing my body language, responding to some requests in an assertive manner, whereas before I would act passively, agreeing to do every single request given to me, which is quite exhausting!
So I would like to thank New Skills Academy for the skills I have gained, I am also able to apply these skills to my personal life as well as my professional life, thank you!
I have just completed the Level 3 Customer Services Diploma course. This course covers all aspects of what exactly customer service is and how somebody could be an excellent costumer representative.
Although I have 10 years work experience, I should admit that I found it quite interesting. This course is comprehensive and any professional can add some useful knowledge. It offers some essential tips for all who want to succeed in the customer service role.
The modules are well organised and understandable, so anybody can easily become familiar with the terminology. I do propose to anybody to attend this course.
This course will give me the chance to engage further in my search for a career. I found this course helpful for both refreshing my memory of known skills as well as teaching me new ones.
I appreciated the chance to engage in this course as it was very interactive. I could both watch videos as well as read explanations. I could then apply that in a practice element of the course.
I have an ICT A Level and I didn’t know some of the function that were possible on word. It has been beneficial to me, even though I’m well versed in Microsoft Word.
Very nice and practical. Good course structure comes with handout. Each module contains down-to-earth content which provide a comprehensive knowledge from learning about this industry, getting to know the florist and the basic understanding about flowers, then to how to start and maintain our own business.
With the completed course which does provide me clear guidelines to enter this industry and knowing what’s in front of me.
The hand out does help a lot too. I can decide freely when to learn and the learning pace by my own. Through this course, I’ve also established a solid knowledge about techniques of how to take care of flowers correctly, how to design and create my own bouquet.
Overall, I am very satisfied.
What can I say? I Couldn’t wait to get started and the log in details came through via email which allowed me to be able to. The course was highly addictive once I started, it was like reading a book, you never want to put down.
It was very easy to understand and very thorough but above all, very enjoyable and exhilarating. I was only sorry when it came to an end. I am now very much looking forward to applying my newly gained knowledge into the floristry world out there. I just hope they are ready for me. I can only say a big thank you for the opportunity.
This was the first online course I’ve funded myself and I was apprehensive as you don’t really know what you’re going to get!
However, I’m happy to report that this course has given me a really good grounding in Child Psychology and has whet my appetite to pursue some of the content in more detail under my own steam.
When I had questions, the Support Team’s responses were lightning fast and reassuring and for the fee paid and the experience I’ve had this has been great value for money and a firm foundation on which to build in the future.
Thank you New Skills Academy!
An enjoyable and informative course, with clear, digestible amounts of information. The worksheets help with understanding and remembering everything, and the whole course is well presented and easy to follow.
Being an online course it allowed me to work at my own pace, and with simple instructions to navigate through the modules, back tracking and repeating ones if I felt I needed too. I was also able to download and print off documents of information for my own files, so if I need to refer back to them I can.
I’d rate it as 10/10, and am looking at the next Level already!
Whilst doing an internship in an Estate Agency, I decided to study the Estate Agent Diploma to gain a better understanding of the regulations and the best ways to go about visits and building my network. I found the course to be very comprehensive and easy to follow.
I’d recommend this to anyone looking to broaden their knowledge of the field of Estate Agency. I found the time estimates to be right if you are simply reading, but I took several pages of notes and so took longer, as I wanted to really understand what I was reading.
Overall, comprehensive and easy to follow.
I found the course very useful and it was fairly easy to navigate around the website. The course material was good and easy to understand and I am glad that I passed my test.
I learned so much as I am currently doing my CEMAP Mortgage Adviser qualification and thought that doing an Estate Agency Diploma would help me know the basics about selling and letting properties.
I feel so much more confident after doing the course and encourage anyone who wants a career in Estate Agency to do this course as you will learn so much from it.
Thank you New Skills Academy!
There are some fantastic courses on offer and they are set out in a simple, easy step by step way to help with home learning. I like how they are set out in small modules with a quiz at the end. It made it easier for me to take on board what I was being taught.
When I needed to contact someone about the course, they responded quickly to my emails and helped me solve my issues. I like that there is no time scale on completing the course so that I can pick up where I left off after a break from learning.
I would recommend learning with New Skills Academy to anyone wanting to improve their skills.
Amazing course, great for people that never have time to go to college or evening classes. So easy to complete online and step by step instructions to help you. Will definitely be doing another course after this.
I’m starting my own business and this course will help me get started as it states all the things I need to know and to be aware of. I can’t wait until I have completed this as this will be a new chapter in my life. You have no time limit on this course which is great as I have a very busy life but this course gives you no pressure.
Would recommend this to anyone.
My course was the Pet Sitting and Dog Walking course. It is quite an interesting course! It was perfect to learn, and this what I was looking for.
Easy and clear to understand with many helpful pictures, very helpful extra information, very informative. I really enjoyed studying this course. For me it was fun ? I studied when I have had time, which is great for me in addition to my current job.
I hope I can start soon my new career with my newly learned skills. I am so excited. Fully accredited course which is important for me. I will definitely recommend New Skills Academy!
I have a BA in Creative Writing, and I learned a lot from this course on the specifics of writing fantasy. With interesting subject matter and a worksheets that you can adapt for future writing, this course was absolutely worth the investment. It also allowed me to develop my teaching CV through its accredited certificate. I am looking forwards to incorporating some of the things I learned through the Fantasy Writing course in to my curriculum and classroom activities. If you have an interest in writing, or if you are an English teacher too, this series of courses are absolutely worth investing in.
Very informative and interesting to read. Having it broken down into very manageable sections makes it easy to absorb your new found knowledge.
I am 3/4 the way through my Legal Secretary Diploma Course, I have studied full time and it has taken me about a week (few hours per day) Very informative course which makes you memorise each module well, with worksheets at the end of each module. Gave a brilliant knowledge base into the different areas of Law and the secretaries roles within them. I have never done an online course before as thought they were not very credible, but this they are good providing you are willing to put the work in, all the information is provided for you , you just need to use it. Thoroughly recommend to anyone who has some spare time and wants to expand their legal knowledge - this course is not just for legal secretaries!!
Was really nice to be able to sit through an online course and fly through it.
This is because my learning styles are predominantly read/write and/or kinaesthetic so being in a classroom listening to teachers is often mind numbing and other students tend to hold me back. This course was great for allowing me to work through at my own pace.
It was also great value for money and although I didn't need to request for student support, all confirmation emails came through quickly and efficiently so I am overall pleased with the service.
Good job New Skills Academy, looking forward to learning with you more in the future.
Having just completed the Dyslexia Diploma in a few days I can honestly say I now have a much better knowledge of the condition and it gave me so much detail and information to learn in order to use in my teaching job. Very clear and easy to follow with great assessments at the end of each module. Also the multiple choice exam covered all of the important points I had learnt. Highly recommend this diploma. The fact I could study this online in my own time was a huge positive. I look forward to further study more diplomas related.
I have always had an interest in property and estate management. I was unsure how to get my career started in this field without any experience or qualifications in that area. Also, having three children and a full time job limits my ability to attend to college courses. The online system they have at "New Skills Academy" is so straight forward and easy to use. I'm really enjoying learning and expanding my knowledge at my own pace and in my own time. Getting started was so straightforward, I even read over material during swimming lessons and the school run. I'm already looking for the next course to start!
It is quite an interesting course! I have learnt a lot since I have seen the precise explanation and video illustration, and I have enough time to learn so well as I did it in my own pace. I've fully understood the whole concept on each module. By the time I've finished the last module, I'm quite prepared for the exam because everything I've learnt has already been absorbed into my mind. Even once I've finished the course, I'm looking forward to learn more by reviewing the course again. Now, I can properly apply the techniques into our massage spa business.
Really interesting and a good starting point for increasing my understanding and knowledge. Easy to access at any time, modules were nice and short so good bursts of information and easy to understand. I feel that I have gained knowledge that I can take forward within my current profession and apply my knowledge to get the best possible results for my organisation in all forms of media. Would recommend this course for anyone looking to start off in this career and looking to gain solid background information to take you forward. You have the flexibility to learn in your own time and take it at your own pace which is great when you are already working full time.
I am on the 4th module and so far I have to say I am really enjoying it.
I have already learnt so much that I never knew before about the human body.
I started this course because I am currently getting into health and fitness to make a better life and future for myself and so I know what is right and wrong when I exercise or with what I am putting into my body.
The layout is really easy to understand and follow, the questions at the end of each module is really helpful too as refreshes what you have already read and learnt. Overall, I am pretty addicted to the course and getting through it quick. Definitely worth the money.
Fantastic course with great instruction and demonstrations.
I can already feel the benefit of this course whilst at work through improved efficiency and the handy tips I have picked up.
I have been using Excel for years now and I really regret not seeking some tuition sooner as I have learnt so many simple but useful things that can really make a difference straight away.
Very pleased with this provider and looking forward to the advanced level and possibly further courses in the future.
I would highly recommend this to anyone wishing to enhance their current knowledge or as a refresher.
The course was very easy to navigate and very informative. I have gained so much information from this course - it is amazing to know I have learnt so much from this and it is even better that you can do it in your own time and no one pushing you.
A very helpful and well-structured introduction to Complete Animal Care. I haven't completed all the course content and modules, but I am finding it is clear and easy to understand and the topics are presented with enough detail to enable a good understanding, but not overwhelm you!
Very straightforward process to access content, good value for money and there is an extensive range of free downloadable resources relating to the course.
While learning at my own pace, the course is giving me all the information I need to start my dream career. I have already and will continue to highly recommend New Skills Academy!
Would recommend the course to anyone! Considering estate agency as a career gives a clear insight into the role and regulation and was easy to digest. I was able to easily fit this in with my busy work schedule. I was able to complete this course in less than a month which I originally expected to take a lot longer. The course material is really helpful and the assignments help you to identify if you have a clear understanding of what you have read and usually don't take too long to complete. I am now looking into doing a more advance course in estate agency and looking for a trainee position in my local area.
This course was amazing and fun!
Not only was it very informative and well categorized and divided into easy learning sections, but also very complete and offering tons of valuable information to succeed as a Landscaper.
The illustrations and photos are very helpful and provide a clear image of how to do things and how things ought to look and also help for future reference along with the worksheets that are downloadable which assist in the learning process.
The course covers every aspect of Garden Design & Landscaping and it was a pleasure completing this course - highly recommend it to anybody with an interest in becoming a Landscaper or for the individual who has an interest in broadening their knowledge in the garden.
I really enjoyed taking time to complete this Floristry diploma course online. I have been flower arranging for a few years now and wanted to improve my knowledge and skills. The course was very detailed and the assignments were good, some very creative, I found the history very interesting and how the different periods used flowers for decoration. I am really interested in wedding flower design modules fourteen and fifteen were of particular interest to me. I also found the starting your own business section very helpful. I would definitely recommend for anyone interested in Floristry to take the course.
Great course. Easily readable online, no jargon and had up to date information and illustrations as well as the sources that were used within the modules. Most modules had an assessment at the end where you could check your own knowledge - this was a great add on to ensure you are up to speed. The exam was easily laid out great with no tricky to read questions. The completion certificate was easily accessible on completion and you are given your grade immediately after the exam - it even gives you the option to see your incorrect answers so you can review them in your own leisure. All of the modules are printable so you can ready back as often as you like. Not only this, but throughout the whole course, you have the ability to email representatives of the course who will answer any questions you may have and they are very prompt with their responses. I was overall very happy with this course and will definitely keep New Skills Academy in mind when taking future course. Thank you!
I've been out of the educational loop for the past five years now and was a little worried about starting a new course. All I can say is I certainly had nothing to worry about! Everything was set out so clearly for me to read and it was one of the most informative courses I've ever taken. I've soaked everything in like a sponge! You can't beat knowing you've got all the information sat waiting for you whenever you need a quick recap. Thank you New Skills Academy, my future can now begin thanks to you! I can't wait to get started!
Great Course! Arrived very quickly on the same day I ordered it - Amazing Service! I can’t wait to get the certificate at the end so I can show my customers that I have under pinned my knowledge and experience by gaining a qualification that is fully accredited. It is so important to keep fully up to date with skill and learning since everything is constantly changing i.e. the law, people’s requirements and to refresh ones’ knowledge is paramount in today’s challenging job market. We need to be one step in front and a head of our competitors if we are to succeed. Thanks You for helping me achieve this.
I can honestly say that I have truly enjoyed learning about Microsoft Excel.
The step by step modules (36 of them!), breaking down each part of Excel was easy to understand and absorb. The explanations of each stage was handy for notes as well. The videos were helpful for directions and practise. The worksheets were helpful to put learning into action.
The test at the end was very good in covering many aspects of Excel, however I would have liked to know what I did not get correct. This would have been helpful.
However, I would gladly use a New Skills Academy course again.
Course was incredible! Excellent development difficult matter, but with details are trained for this
Responsible manager job. Also with the knowledge that you gain, you feel prepared for a big challenge for new career. The importance in hospitality business shown in detail and is easily digested in training for working. Everything is designed with new technology and easily memories, amazingly beautiful methods of training
I feel very satisfied with the course. Magnificent time during the course. I recommend everyone to try. I want to thank the team of New Skills Academy for everything they have created for the education of this kind of business. Thanks again so much!
I am considering a career change, so this seemed a good place to start. The course was comprehensive, for the price and easy to follow. The videos were also really helpful, to help put the information into context. The instructor was very down to earth and easy to follow.
It is helpful to be able to print out the course notes, to refer to at a later date. I will also re-watch the videos when I need to.
The test at the end was multiple choice. There may have been information relating to this on the website, but I didn't find it. The questions were very specific, so you do need to have revised before you take the test.
All in all, I am impressed, for the £40 I spent.
Enrolled in Legal Secretary Diploma course and absolutely love it! The course is well laid out, easy to follow at any pace and is full of information that is fit for the purpose. I can fit learning around my work and family life. I wish I had started sooner!
I would like to say that I have completely enjoyed the course online and I am very pleased with the resources and information that was given. My father is very proud of me completing the course in a short amount of time and I can only give credit to New Skills Academy for giving me the opportunity to complete a qualification that will benefit me in the future. I say this because my preferred job role is a human resources manager or even assistant to start off with. Many thanks for this amazing experience and the importance of this qualification as a whole.
I ordered the wedding planner course as I am off work and wanted to make use of my time. This course is extremely well set out and easy to follow. The course is broken down into easy to manage modules covering absolutely everything you need to know about being a wedding planner. You can complete these modules at your own pace and you get the chance to review the modules you have completed at any time you wish. The modules take you through the step by step process of planning a wedding including all the pit falls. I am enjoying this course and would definitely recommend it to anyone thinking of going into this area of work. The course gives you some very handy tips on things that you may well not have thought about. So what are you waiting for, sign up for an excellent course at a more than reasonable price.
I love being able to study from home, the site is easy to use and I like being able to just log in and study for as long as I have free then pick it up again the next day or a week later. I lost my job suddenly with no notice and decided to take the opportunity to get back into something new I intended to do long ago but just never had the time or money to do so. The great prices for online learning and being able to learn from home whilst doing part time work have helped out so much when on a budget and being unable to be able attend full time college courses.
I started this course as it is a keen interest of mine; as someone who worked as an office manager and administrator for large Estate Agents in London, I wanted to tighten my skills. I was not disappointed! There are a huge range of information; from dealing with aspects of marketing to legalities and a lot of reading. It was very easy to access and very thorough. I would recommend anyone looking to start in the industry, have an interest in property or simply want to brush up on knowledge and skills. I was very pleased overall with the course, and will recommend new skill academy to my friends.
A good course that covers all the basics and will leave you confident and equipped to deal with any emergencies as they arise, from basic equipment needed, to how to do CPR on your dog or cat, to administering medicines and dealing with burns, breaks and drownings. It gave me a lot of tips and pointers to explore the issues further as well as first aid equipment to buy. Providing you read through all of the modules, you'll be able to pass the course quite easily. Good value for money for what I paid for this course. Well worth the few hours needed.
Providing excellent customer service is essential to the long-term viability of every business. New Skills Academy - for me online Diploma in Customer Service course introduces the fundamental elements of customer service and explains how they can be applied in any organization. Following this, it describes how a business can develop its customer service program to the highest level.
This course also details the role of customer service in the hospitality industry, the retail industry and the public sector. These sections explain the elements of customer service that should be focused on in these sectors.
This Diploma course is ideal for business managers, business owners and entrepreneurs who wish to learn how to implement an effective customer service program in their organization. This course will also be of great interest to retail staff, hospitality workers and public servants who want to become more proficient at providing friendly and effective customer service.
This course was fun and flexible. I could study it at my own convenience, leaving it and going back to it in between my other commitments. I was then required to answer a few multiple choice questions at the end in order to receive my certificate which is stored in my account so that I can download it at any time. It is a good qualification to add to my CV when looking to work with pets. I really enjoyed it and it will benefit me in my future career plans. I would definitely recommend it to friends and family.
I studied this course recently and found it to be very interesting, lots of information all easy to understand and printable. The videos were a great add on, easy to follow and understand, showed ways how to do the different types of massages, how to stand and extra information on how to go about adding this to your own business. Contacting the admin department was easy, answered calls very quickly and dealt with the issues straight away. Also a call back to make sure everything was ok. Received certificate within days and downloaded, very good quality. Would highly recommend learning this way!
Wow, a really helpful course, and a great way to get a portfolio of 'faces' that will enhance my repertoire. The course was so useful in highlighting important things to think about and also give a background into the history of facial art. I enjoyed the chapters and the ability to download or re -visit the chapters any time is a great bonus. Personally, for me, I wanted to have a recognizable and quantifiable certification that I can let potential customers see, and check, so they can feel confident I am a qualified and responsible face painter. I would recommend this course to anyone thinking about furthering their interest in face painting.
I wanted a qualification to back up the practical experience I had gained in my last job. I found logging in and navigating the site very easy and I really like the flexibility it gave me; being able to study around my usual working day. The topics were well laid out and explained and I understood well through relevant examples.
The test at the end was straightforward however some rewording of the multiple answers would make it more understandable. But otherwise I'm really happy with this course and I have actually learnt more than I expected.
I would not hesitate to use this company again and have in fact bought another course since.
Amazing course, very easy to do within your own space of time. Very helpful, would highly recommend to anyone and everyone. This has helped me a lot to gain more knowledge and more experience in this field to help me later on in life. The course is user friendly and very straight forward. Provides you with up to date information and real life situations if anything was to happen and makes you feel like you are already working in the field and have the experience you need. The course also has an online tutor to help you at all times!
This course was great! Was so interesting and enlightening to what a day in the wedding planning business will be like! It was so easy to do and easy to fit it around my work schedule. Taught me so much and has really given me an amazing feeling about starting my new career! I would highly recommend! Better than paying thousands to go back to college when you can do this in your own time at your own pace and still learn just as much, if not more! When completing this course, I felt proud and excited for my next steps so thank you so much New Skills Academy for helping me accomplish my big leap into starting a new adventure and finally doing something I love!
I have really enjoyed doing the receptionist course online and I recommend anyone that wants to improve in whatever qualifications they wish to progress in to do it on New Skills Academy. It is very helpful and I have learnt a lot - My family members couldn’t believe how much I have progressed and they have actually said that they will probably do the courses online themselves. I will definitely finish the courses that I still have on here, and maybe do more courses in the future as I have learned a lot and I am willing to learn more as the resources you have on here are brilliant.
The diploma in Waxing course is fantastic, I am really enjoying it. The information provided is in depth and covers everything you require to learn and be knowledgeable enough to work on clients. It is an easy to follow set up and being able to access the course content on either my home computer or my mobile device gives me the ease to always check back if ever unsure of something. I would 100% recommend this course to beginners, or like myself, anyone wanting to just refresh their knowledge. Expanding my knowledge has been made easy! So pleased I found New Skills Academy.
The course was easy to find on the website, and plenty of information regarding course modules, outcomes and any frequently asked questions. There is plenty of choices for a range of courses, which made it harder for me to decide what course I wanted to pursue! The price of the courses are reasonable and doing it in your own time while in employment is a plus for myself. Trying to find time while in full time work is hard in itself, but having a good provider online it has opened the door for me to learn new things and expand my knowledge. I would definitely recommend to anyone who would want to learn online.
This short course about dyslexia is well worth the money. I am a fully qualified dyslexia specialist who teaches full time. I saw this course and thought it would be a good idea to ensure my knowledge and strategies were current. This course is thorough, packed with facts and useful interventions and is easily manageable. It fulfils its brief and would be extremely useful to teachers and TAs working in school who wish to increase their knowledge of SpLD and how to support children effectively. The course reinforces prior knowledge and gives food for thought and discussion. The time indicators for each session are reasonably accurate and allow you to plan your studying and feel that the course is manageable around other commitments. There are some points which feel incomplete or slightly simplified but one can always find further literature and articles to extend one's understanding. I recommend this course.
My son has Aspergers Syndrome, so when this course Autism Awareness Diploma came up with 90% off just after Christmas, I thought I would like to do it. There was no pressure on myself and progressed at my own pace, the course is very informative with lots of hints and tips. The process of going through the Modules and assignments was also very easy to do. The cost of the course was expensive if I hadn't had 90% off. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending New Skills Academy courses to other people for their informative and ease of usage. I really enjoyed it.
I found the CRM course to be very informative & user friendly. The knowledge I've gained, after completing five detailed modules & a short exam, has given me a much better understanding of CRM and this personal development will help me to implement new processes in the workplace. The entire course is available on demand, before and after completion, meaning you can go over every module until you're confident enough to take the exam. For anybody looking to gain information on what Customer Relationship Management is, and how it can improve your business, I cannot not recommend this course highly enough.
I am so impressed with this course. For starters it was hugely discounted which saved me money, secondly it is really easy to use. It is jam packed with information yet so easy to follow and they layout is very clean, clear and precise. I have learnt so much from this course already and I can even revisit modules as and when I need to. If you are an aspiring Makeup Artist, then this course will definitely lead you on the right path and it teaches you how to deal with clients and how to get the best out of your career.
I have found this course very interesting. Even being a bride myself, you don't actually realise how much actually goes into planning a wedding. Every little detail goes into the course. I can’t wait to start putting my work into action - becoming a Wedding Planner and being part of a couple’s day. Helping them plan their most important day of their lives. It’s been interesting learning how other cultures plan and have their weddings, and how many different themes people choose from. Even to the honeymoon. So many things go into being a wedding planner, it’s not as simple as it seems.
This is an absolutely brilliant course, I really enjoyed it and it consists of very detailed information. The test at the end was slightly tricky so it’s important to pay attention to all aspects of the course content. I would highly recommend this course to anyone thinking of becoming a wedding planner, with an interest in this topic or even to anyone who is getting married as there’s a lot of information which could be found useful and certain things that give you good ideas. I loved this course and I’m sad it’s over. It was definitely brilliant from start to finish and is great value for money!
I honestly cannot recommend this course highly enough for anyone thinking of pursuing a career in Wedding Planning. The course was very obviously written by industry professionals. Course content was easy to understand, yet thorough and in depth. I also love that this course covered such a diverse range of topics including weddings from different cultures and religions, not just the standard white-dress chapel wedding. I really feel as though this course has given me a bounding head start in the wedding planning industry and I can't wait to get in there and start my own business. Highly recommend - worth every penny 🙂
The course was very methodical and logical, always pointing towards the goal of learning the information to pass the test. It’s also a very nice course. Made the process seem much less daunting than I had made it appear. The logical and organized approach to the material really made this a worthwhile course.
All the course materials are very easy to understand and access, and the fact that you could study at your own pace when you want.
I want to say a big thank you to New Skills Academy for your effort, heart-felt interest and enthusiasm in putting together this course and sharing it with us. Your frequent, intuitive tips were great memory cues for some of the hard to retain information and very helpful especially for someone forgetful like me. Most of all, you took any worry of failure out of the picture and made it easy to visualize completing the test successfully! Thank you again for all your help.
I will definitely recommend this site to anyone looking to take professional courses. Thanks to them, I now have my diploma in Hotel Reception.
I am over the moon with my experience in completing my first online course with New Skills Academy. I found the whole process quick and efficient and the site very easy to navigate. I found it helpful to complete short tests at the end of each module as I feel this help to review the information I have read and confirm that I understood it and could retain the information as well. I found the course to be very well written and the information provided to be interesting and relevant to the course and the final test to be efficient in recapping everything I had learnt throughout the course. I completely the course quite quickly as was able to study using my iPhone as the course was iOS compatible which I found to be the best way of accessing the course, information and tests. I'm thrilled that I passed my first course and can't wait to get started on the next one. Thank you for such a positive and rewarding experience.
I really enjoyed this course. Although I already work in customer services, I found it very informative and I picked up a lot of useful information and tips. What I liked about the course was that it was something you could do at your own pace and it was easy to follow. It made me feel more relaxed about my studying and put me at ease when it came to the final test at the end. The modules were just the right length, with plenty of content to get your teeth into but not too much that it became overwhelming, and that made it better to learn and digest what was being said. I would certainly recommend it!
This course is easy to read, it’s given me a new avenue to go down and very happy with all the advice I have been given.
The modules give you the basics and knowledge required to start up on your own if you have the back bone to go and use it!
The staff are as helpful as could possibly be.
Thank you for this opportunity, I am very grateful and will be carrying on to the next qualification as soon as I can.
Please note this is a real service and I really can’t believe it’s genuinely. Real big kiss to everyone who has helped me with this.
I have really enjoyed doing this course because I could do it in my own time and there is loads of information and downloads to help.
Great course, lots of really good information which I could take my time over reading and making notes. I could then understand and learn through the content. It has definitely already helped my teaching and will continue to be a source of reference.
This course is really comprehensive - it covers so many topics and themes. I really thought that the way the course is set out is very easy to use. You have the option to print out the course work or work online and the end of module worksheets are great for ensuring that you understand everything by filling in the blanks, answering questions about the topic and so on, you can even revisit modules.
I have only needed to contact support once but the reply was quick and concise.
I am really enjoying the course and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone thinking of or already working in the Office Management field.
Excellent.... Very much enjoyed the course and will do more and more.... As this is an online course, all of the information is available to you whenever and wherever you require it. You can study at a pace that is comfortable for you, and access the information in the course 24 hours a day. Most people who take the course still work full time, which helps you maintain your current lifestyle whilst working towards achieving your dreams.
To access the course, you will require a device that allows you to access the internet, and not only can you see the course, you can also use the online support feature.
Furthermore, you will find the course to be incredibly easy to go through thanks to the individual modules.
When completing the course, you must pass a multiple choice test, and you will then be awarded your diploma. They can post the diploma certificate to you for an additional cost, or you can download and print the certificate at home.
A great course to reinforce the knowledge I have gained through on-the-job experience. Now I have the confidence in my experience to apply for better jobs to utilise my newly learned skills. Being able to complete the course at my own speed and when convenient was great and suited my situation. Also being able to review the modules as I was progressing really helped it sink in thoroughly. I would strongly recommend this course to anyone who has an interest in HR, any section of the arena, either to learn, to brush up on existing knowledge or like me, to be able to prove that I know the basics of the HR function.
For me, as a current employee in Human Resources, this HR Management Course was an excellent opportunity to get more insight of the industry and my job role. The course provided with a lot of relevant information that I could relate to in my job role as well as find ideas that I would be able to adapt in my workplace. I am keen on sharing my knowledge and implementing these new ideas in order to help our company achieve success. Would highly recommend this HRM course to people desiring to join Human Resources as well as the ones already working in the industry as everyone will be able to obtain something that will help them develop as a worker, a person and a future HR Manager!
I found the course very professional and the contact with my course tutor was easy and rewarding. He responded very quickly to my emails.
I found the feedback from the questions I submitted very good and very useful. It helped me complete further questions and has given me direction in my job. I thoroughly enjoyed the course and I would definitely recommend it to colleagues and friends.
I would like to thank my tutor for all his help and valuable suggestions. I found his feedback very helpful and speedy; his remarks were always positive and constructive. The course material is excellent, varied, relevant and up-to-date. I have enjoyed the course and am very glad.
Very well organised via Modules. It was extremely helpful. I learned a lot of new and interesting things.
I especially liked those modules with 'homework' at the end. It might be better if every module has some extra tasks for practice.
Have purchased an online training course for an excellent price and I am very happy with the modules, presentation and interesting details contained in the course.
This course was very easy to follow. Any assistance needed was quickly and professionally sorted.
The modules were great. I am a complete novice in this area of studying but was able to follow each module at my own pace and review.
Thoroughly recommend this to any seeking employment in this area. You get a recognised certificate at the end!
What is also useful is you can revisit modules and refer back to even after the course.
There is an exam at the end which was quite hard but it ensures you have read each module carefully ,so you fully understand.
This course is a must for anyone wanting to undertake Admin or PA work.
I passed and can now apply for this type of work with confidence!!
In one word 'Fantastic!'
I really enjoyed this course. Was a lot of reading and had to stop and try to take it in.
There were 21 modules, and most of them took 45 minutes to complete, so you need to be in a position, where you actually have the time to do all the tasks that are required. The tasks are mainly to do things by yourself to practise what you have just read, but doing it will help you out so much.
Will be looking for another course, as I enjoyed this so much, definitely worth the price as the certificate is worth more on your cv.
Well structured and easy to follow coursework. My queries were answered promptly and were clearly not stock Q&A responses so I felt I had been given real support.
The test at the end was unexpected as the end of module tests were self marking. As it was a timed test that covered every aspect of the course but in a random way which meant one had to pay attention and read the questions carefully!
I feel I have achieved something and will certainly follow up with another course. New Skills Academy is highly recommended as an online study organisation, as well.
I was a bit apprehensive about doing this course online but I needn't have worried. I was able to work through the modules at my own pace.
The course material was easy to understand and had some really useful and practical information and advice such as choosing a name for your business and the pitfalls of working from home.
I'm really, really glad I did this course as I am a home baker and it has provided lots of useful knowledge and tips to take my business forward.
The course has definitely given me the confidence to take my hobby to the next level.
After much searching, I stumbled across this online course which sounded perfect for what I wanted and was available at a very affordable cost. This is the first time I have taken an online course, so wasn’t sure what to expect or if my money was going to be well spent.
The course is great, it was very easy to follow with simple, clear instructions and the additional use of video demonstrations that I found extremely helpful. It was handy to be able to print off all the course modules to keep for future reference and nice to receive a certificate upon completion.
Whilst I will probably never have a career as nail technician, I have gained what I wanted from this course, lots of knowledge and new confidence to do manicures/pedicures on both myself, friends & family.
Love this course!! Everything included is so helpful, from the basics straight through to setting up your own salon.
Being a mother and working full time I was able to work at my own pace.
Would definitely recommend!!
After being in recruitment for three years, this was an amazing course to remind me all the things that I may have let slip it also encouraged me to sharpen up my recruitment practices and I feel rejuvenated in my approach to recruitment with both clients and candidates.
Through the help of this course I feel that I can actively, proactively and effectively target both clients and candidates to achieve my target orientated goals.
Great support and I can honestly say that this course helped me so much in order to understand what it takes in order to become a successful recruiter and allowed me to develop in this area.
Excellent, I thought the course was well put together and liked the fact that the modules were short and manageable.
I have not long started this course but I would recommend it to anyone who is thinking about opening their own baking business.
It has taught me new and interesting things so far and I am excited to complete the remaining modules. This course is helping me to understand what it is like to start a business and how much is actually needed to make it work. I have really enjoyed learning new techniques and ingredients for baking cakes, muffins etc and also what ingredients you can use to cater a variety of people.
I am so glad I came across this course.
This is a fantastic course! I really enjoyed it. The most useful module is about working with autistic children. There are lots of tips how to deal with autistic behaviour!
This course really helps me in my work as a support for the 4-old autistic boy in a nursery. Every day I use an imaginative role play to develop his social skills. It really works! This course also increases my knowledge about autism and other related conditions.
Thanks to all modules I could increase my English terminology about autism as well (I am Polish). I can recommend this course to all people who are interested in autism! Thank you very much for this course.
Fantastic online course. Very informative, easy to follow sessions with a test facility at the end of each session. You can complete this at your own pace any time of day or night, without any pressure and there is even help if you need it with tutors online.
I would highly recommend New Skills Academy to anyone looking to gain a qualification but needs time to complete the course or cannot attend classes. I look forward to completing many more courses with you shortly. A great way of learning new skills, as the name of the company suggests with a recognised qualification.
Thank you New Skills.
I found the course relevant, clear, concise and a good basis for a change of career to HR. I thought it was good value for money, the balance of information, the exercises were good and liked the fact that I can access from wherever and study at my own pace.
I found the website easy to navigate and liked the fact it remembered where I was up to. When I asked a question of support, I got a fast response that solved my question. I would do courses with New Skills Academy in the future.
Thank you very much!
I started the HR Management Diploma Level 2 – CPD Certified & IVCAS Accredited in November 2016, and I can say hand on heart it has been the best experience of my life.
Everything I have learnt here, every lesson, has been practical and useful, with real skills that are relevant to the real world, instead of hours of boring theory and history of the subject. Straight away we were learning real web design.
This course has been incredibly helpful and I have learnt far more than I could have ever imagined and I have only completed 4 of the 20 modules.
Great support from tutors and IT staff! Emails are always answered quickly, even on late nights and early mornings. Good clear lay out across the website, very easy to navigate and keep track of modules completed.
Would highly recommend to anyone looking to gain more knowledge in their own time and develop in the area. I completed this course on my commute to and from work. I also received a student card with this course that was great to benefit discounts from.
I am already thinking about what other courses I can start with New Skills Academy as soon as possible!
A great programme, and allowed me to interact in my own time, reflect on my learning and get to practice. I like the fact that there is an exam to verify and check learning. The platform is easy to navigate around and is engaging both left hemisphere and right hemisphere of the brain.
The parts about motivation and retention rates is interesting and will be helpful in my own personal career. It’s good to see that learning and development, including different training methods are included. The programme is great springboard for people wanting to go into human resources as a career option.
Absolutely loved this course. The information provided is so easy to understand yet so vital to becoming a successful events planner/manager.
I enjoyed this course so much I completed it within 3 days and before finishing wanted to hop on Facebook and open a business. I didn’t by the way… I cannot wait to start putting my knowledge to good use, if you are planning a career in event management then the event management diploma is the way to go!
Not only have I learnt about planning, I now know the basics on starting a business and the dreaded health and safety regulations. So thankful I did this course, well worth it!
I really enjoyed this course because I was able to study at anytime and anywhere from my phone, when my little daughter was sleeping. I like working with people and this course offered me more knowledge about the best way to treat a customer.
This diploma will help me get a better job in the future. After each module there is a short test and at the end of the course there is another overall longer test so it’s best to read and understand each module properly.
I definitely recommend this course to everyone who wants to improve their customer service skills.
An excellent course that looks great on any CV and opens career doors. Having an industry-recognised qualification is useful in any line of work.
I have not yet completed the course but anticipate being able to use the skills learned to broadening my careers options. Would highly recommend this course. It has plenty of supplementary material for the user and is as in-depth as it is comprehensive.
Love the flexibility of the course which allows the user to study in his/her own time which is great for those in full time employment or those with family commitments. Excellent course this far.
Great value course that is very easy to use and full of great content. I learned a lot from it and will now be signing up for other courses.
Thanks New Skills Academy
Received course work as a gift from my spouse. Each module was easy to follow, great content and exceptional graphics and illustrations.
I especially appreciated that I was able to take the modules at my own pace, according to the schedule that fit within my work and free time. Tests where 5 questions based at the end of each module and a 50 question test at the completion of all mode’s.
A wonderful experience, would highly recommend.
The contents on these classes are awesome! I’m currently an architecture student and was a little worried because is an online course and sometimes it leaves doubts or some subjects are not well debated, but I learned so much, it also improved my landscaping knowledge, its satisfying.
I need to say: congratulations for modules organization, the website layout, and the support. Seriously, every once and a while I take online classes and I’m surprised with the New Skills Academy, I totally recommend these classes for anybody that like gardens, also for architecture students – this is essential for our area.
Hopefully I can find something else to study with New Skills Academy!
I took it up in myself to take this course as I am wanting to get on the personal trainer business. I found this course to be really insightful and beneficial.
As well as providing the information needed for health care professionals in the Fitness industry, it also provides the information you might be interested in to take your career further. Such as qualifications you can take afterwards to specialise in a specific area in the Fitness industry.
If you want an informative course that gives you a little extra, this is perfect for you. If you would like the bare minimum, then this course isn’t for you.
I had looked at a lot of different courses like this to help my CPD as an NQT. Not only was it super value for money, but really easy to use and work with.
Having the opportunity to print or PDF information means I can keep any work as evidence.
I have been very impressed with this course and will defiantly look to complete similar courses soon.
As a teacher I have experienced working with children with a range of learning and physical abilities. This course helped consolidate my knowledge and understanding gained during my 12 years of teaching and working with SEN children. It also added knowledge about the various diagnoses and categories and how to recognise them to support children’s learning.
I found the course easy to navigate, informative and I enjoyed the learning experience. In the future it will help me to think of the children in my care and how best to support their learning needs to achieve the best they can. I hope to someday specialise in working with children with SEN.
This is an amazing course. Easy to follow and understand.
I am working with children already and I wanted to do a SEN course to extend my knowledge and able to work with a wide range of children including those with special needs. This course has twice the modules as an average SEN course, so it provides great knowledge in the subject. And this is perfect as it’s CPD accredited course. And the price was just unbelievable!!
The course has email tutor support and lifetime access to the course material which is brilliant for a mum, who is working currently as a volunteer to gain work experience.
Great insight into Fraud. Having only dealt with certain areas of fraud such as insurance fraud I am finding this course to be a great help to increase my knowledge and understanding of other types of fraud and areas/industries affected.
Hopefully this will help me to look at pursuing jobs that I would not have the confidence to apply for due to lack of knowledge or understanding.
Amazing, informative course, really great value for money. Easy to use and navigate the website, and well worth it. Very clear and concise instructions.
I work in fraud at the moment and am just looking for something to add to my CV. Really great value for money. Simple, quick, easy and informative. Lots of modules that make up the course that are simple yet informative about fraud and money laundering and other aspects of fraud.
I’ve enjoyed the course so far and am looking forward to completing it and gaining a new qualification for my CV as well as new knowledge for my current workplace.
Really helpful course, it covers all the main aspects to become a successful PA. I was looking for an admin course where I can improve a new side of my professional career and this course had everything I needed. It gives you everything from basic computer knowledge to tips for the day to day basics like answering the phone or how to create a memo or book your boss’ travel arrangements. It offers a clear structure with all the main subjects divide in short modules, easy to study that way, and it gives you examples in real life as well as practice exercises that help you to understand everything. With support during all the course and access during a whole year, you cannot ask for more value for money! Totally recommended!
I was already quite proficient in many areas that this course covers as I have worked similar jobs before but felt I could benefit from a qualification. This is a very in depth course that covers all areas of being a personal assistant, even ones that I wouldn’t have ever considered needing to learn.
The in-depth learning has built my confidence to put myself out there and try to get back into this career path. I particularly found the section on faxing to be very useful as it’s something that is done in most offices that I’ve found it difficult to come to grips with in the past.
I am already eyeing up more courses on the site and will be sure to give them a try soon.
I can only say that I enjoyed doing this course and highly recommend it to everybody. It’s very easy to use the website and you can access all the information you need to learn. I’m feeling confident with my career change choice.
I found this way of learning perfect for me, as I could study at my own pace in the comfort of my home plus a great teaching layout for each module. Clear and easy to follow studying method of the 21 modules. This course is very well written and understandable. There is a lot of important information, all the chapters are well proportioned and enjoyable to read and understand and doesn’t take too much time.
I really enjoyed learning about new things of every each modules which give me chance to summarise all the important parts in each module. I can recommend this course to anyone who would be interested in admin and PA.
As a PA of a very fast moving company, having many situations thrown at me day to day, I decided to take the Level 3 Admin & PA Diploma course to ensure I was up to scratch within my job role. Although I knew a lot of what was within the course, there were many topics I hadn’t had to use before but since had to.
I found the course very easy to understand and relate to. It was interesting and factual which is brilliant for anyone that would like to improve their PA skills or for someone starting out as a PA.
I enjoyed the course and feel I have bettered myself and my job role as a PA
The course was really easy to access, very clear and easy to read.
Packed with information about so many different topics and situations you may be in as a PA. Helped lots of Microsoft too which I didn’t know about. Very glad I did this course as I have learnt a lot of new things that I didn’t even know you could do online.
I will be looking in to starting new courses with New Skills Academy as it really was so well presented, great support if you needed it and can access it anywhere and continue at any time, thank you.
A clear and concise course that allowed me to go at my own pace, with no time limit. A great way to learn and study from home so that you can fit it around your daily lifestyle.
With demonstration videos and help always on hand, the course is easy to follow and understand. The course taught me a variety of techniques and methods to apply Make-Up and has also given me the advice and guidance I needed to go forward with a career.
The end test is challenging so it is important to study and revise all modules in order to pass.
Before starting this course I had no prior knowledge in floristry. The course not only gave me the tools I needed to get started but also gave me the passion and the confidence to move forward with floristry as a career.
Through the content I have learned within the course I have been able to not only make, but also sell many of my own designs as well as book a couple of future events.
This has been a great launching pad for me into a career I am truly enjoying. I highly suggest for anyone who is considering floristry to start with this course.
I am over the moon with this course and just had to leave a positive review.
The content is very relevant and completely up to date, it gives a fantastic overview of Advertising which is simple and easy to read and digest. It has helped me understand aspects in my current job role more than I needed. I am confident it would help anyone take the plunge into the marketing world!! The little tests along the way are also really handy, and tests what you have understood.
I would highly recommend this course. I am really looking forward to completing the remainder of this course, and browse what other courses are available. Thank you!!
I’ve been searching for courses based around animals for a long time. Finally found a provider that has a lot of courses in this area. I’m really enjoying this course so far, and can’t wait to do the next one.
The course is very easy to follow, with highlighted text so that you can remember the important parts of each module and the fact you can learn at your own speed and access the course for life is great. I am a very busy working mum, and I can now fit my learning around my other commitments in my life.
Bring on future learning!
Excellent course that not only gives me the elements to know about my interest but helps me to refresh my previous knowledge about it and about all that is related to. I feel prepared to continue studying at the end of it, and I now work with animals as a volunteer.
I am happy to recommend to every person that wants to continue studying or would simply like to know more about pets. I don’t have much time to go to a class or can’t because of work.
Marvellous experience, and the help of the staff through email were great!
I’m a property investor and I have an interest in property generally. I wanted to do this course to broaden my knowledge of property but also make sure I understand my rights as a buyer of property. This is a nice introduction to the profession of Estate Agency but also negotiation and building networks. It includes material on both residential and commercial property, and also property maintenance. It touches upon the Estate Agents Act 1979 which is very important. My next step will be to review the act. It is a very broad course and is a good place to start.
Amazing! New Skills Academy has helped me shape my life and improve my understanding of my chosen course, so simply and now I am that one step closer to achieving my goal. Such a simple yet professional system and easy to learn from.
Would and will recommend to friends and family. A great way to learn without the price tag of going to University and saves a lot of time. Super easy to set up. 5 Star rating throughout the whole experience.
Going to buy my sister the same course for a birthday gift, which is a great offer that they do.
I have always wanted to do hairdressing but never had the confidence. Since taking this course it has given me the chance I wanted and boosted my confidence.
There is lots of information and videos and you can always re-cap if needed.
I really enjoyed the course and would recommend this to my friends.
I completed a City and Guilds Certificate 40 years ago and was looking at bringing my skills up to date. This gave me the encouragement and insight to what I needed to go back into hairdressing. I understand the importance of keeping my skills up to date and would like to study further in styling, hair treatment and colouring.
Thank you very much I enjoyed the 27 modules attached to the course. I particularly enjoyed the videos attached to the course and have always enjoyed putting hair up for special occasions such as weddings.
If your looking for a refresher or new career then this is a Fantastic site for courses. This is the second course I’ve done on this site and there very in depth and I’ve learnt so much. Very pleased. Would highly recommend.
Will be looking to do more courses in the future. Not only have I achieved two diplomas but I’ve got new services to offer in my salon for all my clients. Great time of year to have completed with christmas around the corner, my salons never been so busy and even taken bookings for 2017 already.
Would recommend to all!
loved this course. I feel I could start my own business if I choose to but I prefer working for a company that is already established.
I found this course easy to understand and follow and found it highly useful that I could pick it up and leave it as I wished so I could fit it in around my life.
I am currently scouring the internet and papers and phoning companies in order to find myself employment with in this field of work.
I cannot thank this company enough for enabling me to fulfil a life dream of working with animals.
Thoroughly enjoyed this course. Have decided to change my career path but have no real experience or qualifications in the job I really want to do.
I have always wanted to work with animals but ended up in the retail sector. While I do enjoy that, I feel now is the time to get out there and do what I want to do. I have sent in my CV to a dog groomer near me with a copy of my certificate attached. Fingers crossed!
I enjoyed this Diploma so much I shall be having a go at another pet/dog related one in the very near future!
This course is really good. Easy to read and I found it really enjoyable and interesting as it was full of facts and information relating to the course.
It is nicely broken up into sections with short tests at the end and it doesn’t feel too overwhelming, feels very manageable.
I especially like that there is no time limit on completing this course, being a full time mum of two small children my life is pretty hectic so it’s great that whenever I get half an hour free I can sit and do as much or as little as I want.
his is a really great course, its content is really useful.
It’s great value for money and it’s not at all stressful. It’s so easy to understand, yet it covers complex aspects regarding safe practices. It let’s you stop and start the course, which means I can still work in a full time job, which won’t effect me financially.
This has been the best decision to complete this course. I’m really keen to learn more skills, and maybe do a few more courses to expand my skills set. I will most definitely be using New Skills Academy to help me!
I was desperate to get out of my current job but didn't quite have the right skills to move on to another job. I am so glad I chose this course as it has allowed me to gain much needed skills and opened many doors in my career development.
When I first started, I was quite anxious, but after seeing the course layout, it was very simple, effective and most important, engaging.
I especially liked the fact you don't become overwhelmed by the courses quantity of modules, and in the end you have to answer a certain amount of questions within a certain time limit. Every module's layout is very clean, fresh and comprehensive when it comes to its explanation.
If there was any part of the course I was unsure of, I would seek help from the advisors via the online chat and I could say they have been very friendly and helpful.
I'm glad I have taken this course through New Skills ACADEMY and I intend to undertake other courses by them.
I love this garden design course, I have been given the opportunity to learn more about garden design and maintenance so I can start my own gardening business
Very enjoyable and informative course which covered all aspects of dog grooming, managing the business side and history of dog grooming. What I liked most was being able to do the course at my own pace, revisiting modules as required to gain a complete understanding of what I was learning.
I found the video tutorials very helpful and was able to give my own dog a professional cut after watching them.
On the one occasion I forgot my password online help were very prompt in helping me . I would highly recommend this course. Good value for money.
Thank-you New Skills Academy!

Thanks to this course I can take my career in a new and improved direction. After sustaining injuries where I have to be wheelchair bound I thought career prospects were slim. But now I have qualified I have hope again.
This course is amazingly well structured in such a way that it enabled me to memorise everything and in my own time, and explained in terms everyone could understand, the modules were short and to the point with very little un-needed information and at a great price too!
Online support staff were amazing they couldn't help enough. Messages were sent within 20 minutes and were extremely accurate. The final exam was easy and gave me plenty of time to complete with 30 questions and 30 minutes to answer (although only 10 minutes were needed) after ordering my certificate it was delivered within 48 hours. It looks amazing and the quality is great too.
I personally loved this course because I'm planning my own wedding for 2018 but wanted to know so much more about the topic. I found out so much more than my own personal knowledge and walked away feeling much more confident with small details I would have never even thought about.
I would recommend this course to anyone planning their wedding, or helping a friend plan their wedding or wanting to start their own wedding planning business - each module is so informative that you don't feel that you haven't learned all that you need to know to hit the floor running.
There are 24 modules to complete in this course and each module is so helpful and easy to understand, I was not left with one question due to how full of detail and how well presented the module and course is. Definitely give this course a go to broaden your qualifications and knowledge!
I am Massage Therapist, I know many things about various massages and techniques. On this website I finished Upper body course and I learned loads of interesting information which I did not know before. I recommend this for everyone who wants to be a professional massage therapist or just keep it as a hobby and give a massages to family members or close friends, because it is very helpful to know how to give massage correctly. Definitely will buy more courses from this website. Looking forward to buy a new course and learn more and more and more!
This course is very comprehensive. It is packed full of very helpful information to aid the Teaching assistant to use his or her skills and knowledge to the full.
If this course is being taken by those who have no knowledge of being a TA, then in my honest opinion they would certainly know about the role when they finish.
I do like the online tests at the end. It does make you think and definitely reinforces what material has just been read. It is also an incentive when seeing a 'grade' to realise how much has been taken in thus encouraging enthusiasm to proceed to the next module.
In all I would say that this course is certainly worth doing, I'm enjoying it and what it has to offer.
I found this course most interesting. Having been a Receptionist in various industries over the years, and learning more at each location, this course helped focus my thoughts 'back to basics' and made me rethink some of the things I'd learnt. Very helpful, very concise, informative and uncomplicated.
It also gave great insights into the different kind of Reception work which can be so varied. I have been put forward for a Doctors Receptionist vacancy, a 'trade' I haven't ventured into yet, and will take what I have learnt from the course to the interview and hopefully it will stand me in good stead.
This course is really concise and well written. I am exceptionally pleased with my purchase and I am hoping that I will soon progress towards a job in this industry.
You can complete this all online but you also have the option to save the modules in pdf or print the modules for your records which is great for revision.
Great price and lots of help
I did not realise how in depth make up actually was until I actually began the course.
I found the course material very beneficial and it gave me an understanding of how to use all aspects of make up.The videos are extremely helpful and the tutor on them is very precise and clear.
I am exceedingly happy I took this course and it has put me in place for the perfect start. Highly recommend thank you skill academy for giving me the opportunity to better my self at my own pace. The hints and tips are ideal to make notes of xx
I really enjoyed completing this course, it was very informative and has boasted my confidence so much that i feel excited about moving forward with my new career.
I have learned so much by completing the course and I cannot wait to put it all into practice.
I completed the course after studying at my own pace, there was no time scale to finish it which I was happy about and the support team were very quick to respond to any queries that I had at any time through out the learning process. I love that i have my certificate and I feel very proud of myself
I was very pleased to find a course online which suited both my financial and learning needs.
Really enjoyed the course and would like to take this further. I would recommend this course and found it good value. There is a lack of this type of course available in any colleges in Scotland.
The course has given me motivation to learn and research online about different breads of dogs and their care. I enjoyed the videos attached to the course which were very detailed and easy to follow. I have since purchased the brushes and tools recommended and have had a chance to put into practice what I have learned.
It's very easy to use the website and you can access all the information you need to learn. The tutors are very quick to respond what makes even easier to understand and move on with the studies.
Very happy with the course.
Easy to use! Fantastic! It has massively helped me whilst I have been working in Human Resources.
I couldn't ask for anything better.
I can't wait to start another course with you! Definitely worth every penny and I would highly recommend I was also able to brush up on my excel knowledge too which is really imperative in my role.
Before I started the course I had little knowledge on how to use Excel I am now a Excel wiz! Such a fantastic course I would recommend it to anyone working in HR or looking to get into HR
This course was great!!!!! Made me knowledgeable in more than one way.
I work in a landscaping company doing all HR and Bookkeeping, but wanted to further my education and start being able to help clients more than just sending them an invoice, I wanted to start designing as well. I am still going back and reviewing the plants knowledge and reviewing just in case.
I love that you can download the modules for future reference, I will definitely be using this as a tool. And possibly taking more classes to further my education. Thanks to this course I am on my way!
Very easy to follow modules with brilliant work sheets to check what you have just learnt. Highly recommended.
It is easy to follow and understand, and gives you a full overview of the HR management.
You can download the training material if you prefer to take note directly on the paper version.
Excellent. Simple to use interface, with clearly written and relevant material. I'm feeling confident with my career change choice, thanks to this course.
The course is well written and broken down into easy sections, there is a test at the end of each module. This course is good if you're looking at a new career or even just want a better understanding of exercise, I would recommend the course for for either.
The web site is easy to navigate, I would recommend this for some one wanting to start a career in the fitness industry.
I am only 5 modules in to the course but is delivering above what I expected. Content is well explained and easy to digest and I like that I can do it at my own rate and without time pressure.
I have a dace agree that covers anatomy etc and this has been an thorough refresher for me. Highly recommended. (Well priced too.)
I didn't know there is a better way and easiest way to better your personal training and fitness instructor course, till someone told me about fitness diploma course, very useful.
The questions are very relevant , I have just completed my personal trainer and fitness instructor course and passed,I'm over the moon, will do another course soon. I truly recommend this website .
Great teaching layout for each module. Clear and easy to follow studying method.
I found this way of learning perfect for me, as I could study at my own pace in the comfort of my home. Being dyslexic, I enjoyed studying the modules in my own time. Support always on hand if needed, plus a bonus of being able to print off each module to add my own notes.
Easy to use layout of the course, allowed myself to swiftly go through each module, with a small test at the end of each module before moving on, making sure the knowledge had sunk in! With a final Test at the end to complete the Diploma. I would recommend this site to others, looking to add to their skill set.
This course is so easy. I was a little nervous before I started it but even after the first module I was at ease.
The video's are clear and the course is easy to understand.
Everything I need to learn is here, from the basics like handling to bathing to full grooming. you can save the work on to your pc or laptop as you go along so you can go back over it later on. at the end of each module you even get time to practise what you have learnt.
I'm so glad I found this company and will highly recommend.
This course was very informative and i loved that it could be done at my own pace and not have deadlines to reach.
Even my dog loved the benefits and being my practice dummy!
I must honestly say that this course website is a great help for learning new information on previous courses as I did a Premiere Animal Care 1 year course.
Ever since my mum introduced me to this website and got me on the "Dog Grooming Diploma" course through New Skills , we also came across many other great courses and offers and not only did I learn new skills, techniques and information while working on my modules my previous knowledge on dog care expanded tremendously!
I would definitely recommend this website to friends and family to help them gain skills, experience and knowledge on whatever job they are hoping to get with the qualifications from their chosen course.
The course is full of interesting and useful information to know more about garden design and maintenance.
All the modules are easy to understand and gave me strong basics and confidence to start my own garden design business. Also I found the course very interactive, with images to illustrate the modules, garden design plans examples... so I could really visualise what was meant in each module.
Considering the online aspect, I found the website very easy to use and I appreciated the fact that I could keep a trace of my course by downloading the modules on my own laptop.
Hello people! This has been a great course for me. I have learned everything I will need to maintain my own and other people's gardens in the future. I just love the Garden design and maintenance course. Thank you so much.
Thoroughly enjoying this course. It's great that I can study at my own pace with no time restrictions so I can do a little or a lot each time depending on what time I have a available.
So much useful information I will be be able to apply not only to landscaping specifically but also to business in general & day to day gardening both personally & professionally.
The chapters are easy to follow, the estimated time helps schedule your time appropriately & the questions at the end of each chapter make sure you have understood correctly.
Really good course that covered lots of different areas within events planning. I liked that, if there were any questions you got wrong on the tests, you could find out which ones and try again. Lots of case studies to look through too.
Fantastic course. It has really given me a strong foundation to pursue my journey into event planning.
The course is concise and gets straight to the point. It breaks everything down into simple points that are easy to remember.
I would recommend this course to anyone and everyone looking to pursue a career within the events industry.
really enjoyed the course, nice short sections easy to take in the information.
I particularity liked the option to save the pfd and print the material, this allowed me to look back on the information, which was very helpful.
I would recommend this course to others as it gives an understanding to the events industry.
I look forward to using my diploma and put the skills i learnt into practice in a day to day career change. Thanks!
The course covers all the necessary aspects of SEN education, and is produced in manageable modules for learning.
In terms of value and content, I would rate this as one of the best online diploma courses.
I was worried that I wouldn't be able to manage this my course and work. But to my surprise and comfort this course is set out so well I find I'm enjoying learning again and look forward to putting my studying into practice in my future job role....it's brilliant !!!!
This online course really helps me in pursuing my career and gain knowledge about special education. It's very easy to use and very user friendly! Two thumbs up!
A fantastic start for a new SENCo or a nice refresher for one who has been around for a while, worth every penny and has helped immensely!
I've just completed the Level 3 Admin & PA Diploma!
I found the course informative and user friendly to navigate. I had the chance to refresh the skills I already possessed and it introduced me to new ideas and information. It was a good opportunity for me to update my skill set.
A very useful course with the topics very well presented and easy to read and follow. I was able to easily slot the course into my schedule and enjoyed setting time aside to work my way through. I would definitely recommend this course to those wishing to learn something new and for those wishing to sharpen up on previous knowledge.
I passed my admin course. It was very clear, so I found it so easy to understand and take in all the information. Thank you
Whilst on maternity leave I started thinking about in what capacity I'd go back to work, and if there was something different I could do. I came across reed courses and chose this course in PA and Admin and another in HR.
I was so happy they were on offer! I chose them because the course modules were comprehensive.
I can sit and do modules with my newborn son on my lap via my iPhone. It's so handy, the modules are clear and concise.
I'm so happy I chose this course. I can't wait to add it to my CV and see what jobs I can get.
This course has changed my life. It has opened a lot of door and when I apply for jobs it adds distinction to my CV.
It is easy to take time out after work or on a Sunday and it never gets boring. Your mind is filled with new skills and more information that you would love too use in the real world.
I cannot fault this course. I am now applying for University and completing this course will show how dedicated I am to learning.
Having just completed the Admin & PA diploma I feel far more equipped to start a new career. From covering the basics, to recapping on things forgotten to introducing new concepts this course has something for everyone.
So far I am really enjoying the course. the details were sent through to me within 4 hours, even though there was up to a 48 hour wait.
This course is very well structured and has many helpful features, such as the recap option for each module, and the summary section at the end of each module.
I will definitely be recommending this course.
This is a good overview with useful hints and tips covering a broad range of administrative activities and the tools to assist in effectively carrying out these activities. Even as a seasoned administrator, I was able to learn new tips and functions within the tools that I was unaware of to make my role more effective.
A great course to introduce and explain the roles and responsibilities of the PA and Administrator, or as a refresher to those wishing to return to the workplace.
The modules are jargon free and clearly laid out with exercises to complete at your own pace. There are useful notes and lists that help to make time management easier in the busy work environment.
I am impressed that the modules can be downloaded, saved or printed for future reference - many other courses do not offer this.
I have almost completed my Admin & PA Diploma and it has given me the confidence to apply for my first admin job in some years.
A brilliant course which was very informative and I really enjoyed it. Very difficult test at the end so you do really need to read through every module to do the test and pass it.
I will be recommending it to all my friends for sure. The bonus is I have access to this information forever. So I can revisit it anytime I like, how great is that??? I think its amazing personally.
I my opinion it is the best idea for people who working full time. You can start anytime you want, all files you can keep to learning. You are boss yourself:-)
The platform is available anytime, I can back to module if I forgot something. I recommend for everyone who wants broaden their knowledge.
I decided to change career and few of my friends did similar on line courses and now work as teaching assistants.
This course is very well written and understandable.There is a lot of important information,all the chapters are well proportioned and enjoyable to read and understand.
I really liked worksheets on the end of modules which give you chance to summarise all the important parts in each module.I can recommend this course to anyone who would be interested in becoming teaching assistant.
This is a fantastic course, it is incredible value for money and it will give you all the information you need to be able to pursue the career of Teaching Assistant.
Being able to do it all in your own time makes it a lot less stressful if you're trying to fit it around work and life in general and the addition of worksheets throughout helps you see which areas need improvement before you take the final test.
An amazing opportunity to improve my skills and easy to access. I really enjoyed the course! I think it s an excellent way to learn and improve yourself.
Thanks to this amazing course my self-esteem is growing up and I feel capable to start a new job and a new life. Constantly I am studying and I hope to be successful in the future.

I enjoyed doing this course and I highly recommend it to everybody. Thank you very much. Very helpful online teachers there 24/7 would do another course in a blink of an eye, easy set up and very helpful, now on my way to my career. Happy me.
I started this course so I could learn about payroll as I am interested in hopefully securing future employment within this area.
The course is brilliant to use. The information available on the individual modules is so easy to read and understand. The activities at the end of the modules refresh what you have just learnt, you can print these also so you are able to make notes for your own personal reference to go back to. You can also log onto your course at home or if your out and about on your phone.
Overall I would recommend this course and I am so pleased I decided to go for this and will look forward to being able to write this onto my CV.
The course is informative and easy to follow. I especially liked the history tips given throughout the course.
I have included the payroll Diploma course to add another skill set to my CV and being self employed and in the mature bracket it is good to keep yourself updated on all new legislation. I also liked the option of returning to complete modules in your own time to fit in around work commitments.
Highly recommended ,with good and clear quality and content ,simply lead in payroll world ,absolutely amazing way to gain knowledge and skills for help kick career.
This course was a good introduction to payroll and the content was easy to read and well set out. I would recommend this course to anyone that would like to start out in payroll.
Having recently started a role in the payroll department I felt I needed to gain knowledge from as many sources as possible.
I found this course to be thorough, easy to understand and the website easy to navigate. It gave me a much greater understanding of payroll systems, the legal obligations of an employer and HMRC guidelines.
I would thoroughly recommend this course to anyone starting out or wanting to progress in a payroll role.
Clear and informative content, excellently delivered for students of all levels to easily undertake.
This course gave me a great level of understanding to confidently take on even further payroll related education. It filled in the gaps where my knowledge was not so strong, which I have now confidently applied to my day to day job.
A boost on my CV which I feel will make me more attractive to future employers. Overall excellent and highly recommended!
I was a bit nervous when I first purchased the nail technician diploma online course for the one reason that it was so cheap compared to other online courses I had seen.
I have recently taken this course and i can honestly say that it is so easy to follow and you really do learn all the things you need to know to become a successful nail technician from the nail anatomy to starting your own business and all the other helpful bits in between.
I can't believe I am well on my way to becoming a qualified nail technician:) If you are worried about purchasing this course then don't be! This course is brilliant and I would recommend to anyone! xxx
I was a little sceptical about doing an online course as thought it wouldn't be very in depth, but how wrong I was!
Very thorough and covered everything yo could possibly need. I trained many years ago and wanted a refresh and this was perfect and enabled me to get my insurance and feel confident being back in the Beauty Industry.
I'm now about to start another refresh course on waxing and cant wait to get going, I will most certainly be back to do more. If you're unsure whether to do an online course, don't be, its a must. Highly recommended!
Great course which is simple to do but you get a great qualification in the end and if you fail a unit it is simply to retake.
Full knowledge of area so it makes it easier to start a business and tells you the legal things you need to know as well
I started doing nails as a hobby, and my interest just carried on growing, I never thought that I would end up qualified!
This is an amazing way to turn your hobby into a nice little money maker and boost your own confidence and knowledge in the process.
This is brilliant I couldn't of had a better course to do having the videos as well help so much
I've completed the course and have started to prepare myself as a mobile nail technician.
The online course was easy to understand and the videos were a good way to practice step by step.
This is just what I needed to help me launch my business!
I am so excited to use all I have learned here and apply it to my own venture! Was wonderful learning all the science behind the role and was truly, exactly what I was looking for in a course.
I will be referring back to the materials, it is extremely interesting as well as informative!
Thank you so much!!!
This course was super fun and so easy to follow.
I loved the convenience of learning everywhere, I could use my phone or tablet and do the course in the car, breaks while at work or in the privacy of my living room. The videos were wonderful and the worksheets helped so much as well... I'm more confident in myself now 🙂
This course is brilliant! Extremely easy to follow and understand. You are able to do it in your own time so there's no pressure.
I've now just completed it and enjoyed the whole experience. I can't wait to get my little business up and running. Thank you all
I was bought this Nail course as a birthday present and it has really inspired me as I have always had a passion for Nail design.
This course was well structured, clear, and easy to follow. It ran smoothly and I knew exactly how long I was expected to work on each module.
I learnt all about the business side to the salon as well as physical skills and it was easy to do the exams and get my certificate. I would thoroughly recommend this course or similar ones to other people as it was so flexible and I can now take my new skills straight into the working world.
This was a brilliant course that was easy to understand and fits into your lifestyle by being able to access at times that suits you. I needed a refresher course and this ticked all the boxes. One area which I was not aware of was the Employment Allowance Incentive but I now understand this fully. It is also good information on record keeping along with Data Protection. I highly recommend this course and it doesn't have to be expensive to do. The fact that you get a Diploma Certificate at the end only enhances your CV and gives you a sense of satisfaction.
Clear and concise content in a great structure to allow to be able to revise and study key points without being rushed forward without fully understanding content , iv'e done lots of distant learning courses but this is by far the best !
The International Massage course is exceptional in value. The course is comprehensively laid out, each component labelled with an initial written notes, followed by details excellent videos which actually show exactly how to massage.
The course covers all types of massage such as Lomi lomi massage to hot stone massage.
I have benefited enormously from registering on this course. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this course to anyone as I am aware of how much they would benefit.
I gave my friend a massage just for fun & she was amazed & told me she thinks I am the best masseuse ever. She should know as she has regular massages from professional. So what are you waiting for? Go ahead sign up for the course.
By the way no one is paying me to say this, I am saying what I believe to be true.
This course has been such a great help in my new career path as a PA. When I was job hunting before, I was having no luck, however now I have interested daily for PA roles all because of my new qualification. Easy to use at my own pace. Thanks!
I think the Admin and PA Diploma course is absolutely terrific. It gives candidates the chance to develop their skills in the PA and Administration field along with gaining some valuable personal skills along the way. It has given me the boost that I needed to be considered for different job roles in the Administration field and without this my CV would not look as good to potential employers. Giving people the chance to succeed at something they really want to be a part of makes this course brilliant in every way. The layout of each module is set out superbly !
Just writing to congratulate your team for putting this course together. I have been Training with SEN for a year as a trainee and fallen in love with this profession and the development of children in early years. I have had some professional in house training but i really enjoyed this course thank so much i needed a way to prove the some of my gained knowledge for my self as a single mum working so hard i am in tears this morning with joy thank so much i have lot of work to with our children with revisited knowledge and insight knowledge what bank of information to come back to when i need refreshing
Thank you This course was amazing I couldn't stop reading Like a hungry child
To be honest I was sceptical at first. There are many online courses to choose from but what intrigued me the most about this course is the number of modules (22 of them). This appeared to be more detailed than others. The reason I took this course is because I started a new role as a support tutor for a large training company. I already had some experience in working with learners who had special needs and learning difficulties but wanted more in-depth knowledge and tips to support my delivery. I also wanted to know more on the legal of side of SEN too. The course was offered at a large discount that did give me concerns! But I took the plunge and have been pleasantly surprised on how well it's been written and presented in manageable bite-size chunks. I was planning to study about a couple of hours a night but once I started I found it difficult to stop. It took me about 3 days to complete. The information is comprehensive but manageable. You can tell the person/persons who wrote this have a passion for supported learning and give practical strategies to support SEN and care about their sector and want to share their passion. Highly recommended study material. 🙂
Brilliant course. As a busy ,working mum this course gave a chance to change my career but it also gave me a chance to study in my own free time. Very easy wording, education videos, important information you can't find online. The brilliant thing is that even after finishing the course you still can go back to your modules and view the videos again. The help from assistants is great. The minute I contacted them with question they always responded very quickly and professionally.
I found this course very useful. It covers the all categories of cleaning and goes in to great detail without being overwhelming. Its a clean and easy to use step by step interface that glides you through the modules. If you want to take more time and revise in your own time without access to the internet, the PDF viewer and print functions are a great feature. This course has helped me gain the new knowledge of this industry and will be the first step towards a great career. There is certainly more than meets the eye when it comes to cleaning and I have an even bigger appreciation for an industry which is vital to millions and widely under appreciated. Thank you British Cleaning Certificate for the excellent service!
I am so happy I decided to take this course I would not be where I am now without it.
Nail diploma school has taught me so much I have a much better understanding of how to start my business and run is successfully.
Even employers are begging to have me and my clients are swarming after I learnt how to advertise better. A big thanks.
I have just complete the nail technician diploma award and delivered professional manicures and nail extensions to my friends and family who are very pleased with their treatments! The course was easy to follow and fun to do!
The course is simple and easy to follow, the videos are a great way to see it all in action, the pictures are a great way for you to get some inspiration too especially with the nail art. I have referred this course to a friend already.
I love the course very straight forward. Would love to know if there are any more courses available like this for advancement. Everything is clearly explained and if you get in trouble there is a helpline you can call. There should be more courses like this available online to benefit those people that want to go to work in their chosen field but are unable to pay for a program at college or else where. Well done and thank you for allowing me to pursue my interest and hopefully a career at the end of my studying.
Very Informative course, breaks everything down easily into simple steps.Thank you.
Excellent course. I enjoyed doing this course and I highly recommend it to everybody that start in the cleaning industry. Thank you very much.
I have started this course only 1 day ago and I cant stop studying. The information is very informative. I like the way the course gives you time to practice to get the skill right before you move onto the next subject.
I am looking forward to completing the course so I can start doing the nails properly. Highly Recommended.
Amazing course! Clear training videos and everything you need to know to become a nail tech! I'm so pleased I decided to do this. It's put me on track to work for myself and own my own business
Great course worth the money very detailed yet easy to understand and all official with a certificate at the end it's very interesting and fun
Thank you for the amazing opportunity to be a nail technician! The course is very interesting, helpful and detailed. I have enjoyed every module and very very soon I'll have a certificate! Highly recommend!
Really friendly, easy to use programme.
We used this system to train people who use our day centre. They sat the exam and those that passed received their certificates which they loved. We then published this on peoples CV's to help them find work.
Its a really friendly, easy to use programme which I would recommend.
Wow! Wow!! Wow!!! Is there anyone still thinking about doing the course? Dont think. Buy the course and just do it. Very Interesting course. I thought I wouldn't be able to finish this in 1 month, But I was wrong. I was totally Glued to my computer that I forgot my lunch. I am happy I bought this course and I passed the course, and I have printed my certificate. What else could you ask for? They even would allow you use their Business Logo on your website makes it so professional. You also get templates of almost everything you would need to start a new company from Business cards to flyers. All I can say is Thanks for the great course and great give away templates.
I will recommend this over and over again.....
I am about half way through my course now and it is just fantastic. Such an easy way for learning and studying from home in my circumstances is the best option for me. Very helpful when I have needed help and such a brilliant course to follow..
Great course!!I have learnt everything I need to become a nail technician!with many photos and videos and with many instructions leaves you with no questions at all!!I definitely suggest this course!!
Amazing course with so much detail. All the modules are easy to read and flow from one subject to the next. It was really easy to enrol on the course too and I received my log in information the same day that I enrolled. I would recommend the course to anyone wishing to pursue a course in floristry.
I've only just started this course but already the content layout and info are spot on. I was only going to do the 1st module the evening I got it but four hours later I had almost completed four! I just couldn't put it down. I have just finished an online aromatherpy course but the massage section was vague so this complements it perfectly I would recommend to anyone. I will be using this as a business but it's also perfect for people to learn for friends and family! So glad I found it. Thank you
This course is incredibly helpful and easy to understand to start off a career in event planning. The case studies give you an insight into the real world of this role and not just the "shiny exterior". I'm loving this course and cannot wait to use the knowledge that I have gained in the [hopefully not so distant] future!
Taking the International Massage Diploma Course at New Skills Academy was my best idea and my best investment in a long time. The flexible timing, professional yet easy understand material helped me to change career (and life) in no time. Absolutely brilliant.
