Welcome to New Skills Academy – Part of the Be-a Education Family
In November of 2013, a single question was asked: ‘What do you want to learn?’ From there, a vision was born of comprehensive, high quality, and affordable online course availability. The name behind that vision was New Skills Academy.
When it comes to online schools, there are plenty, but at New Skills Academy we distinguish ourselves amongst the competition with our dedication to your long-term goals.
If you are entering a job market for the first time, or seeking a new career, we will provide you with the fast and efficient online support you need to make your dreams a reality.
Our expertly designed courses, detailed lesson plans and student testimonials all attest to the fact that we take great pride in our course offerings and provide only the best for our students.
Whether you are studying retail banking, dog grooming or even our cupcake academy, New Skills Academy has the tools you need to advance as a professional in your chosen profession.
Freedom to Study
Offering a broad range of course options is a good start, but we envisioned so much more for our students. We take great pride in offering our students the ability to study anytime, anywhere, and it is our belief that an award winning business would settle for nothing less.
Often, people dream of pursuing a degree or certification but never find the time to follow through. We know life gets busy, which is why our customers can take our courses online from anywhere while still working. Students can access our courses from a PC, mobile phone or tablet; this means you can learn anywhere you go.
Once students access our courses, they are offered up to date subject information for a lifetime!
Learn with Confidence
Our students’ reputation matters, which is why all of our online courses have been reviewed and certified in partnership with qualified industry experts. For added security and peace of mind, all of our courses have been approved by CPD. We welcome these reviews because we believe in our students, their interests, and ability to pursue and learn any new skill they may desire along the way.
New Skills Academy are proud to say that we are a multiple award winning company.
We have won both local and global awards in such categories as Best E-business, Outstanding Business, Family Business, Small Business and Entrepreneur of the Year.
As well as awards for the company as a whole, our co-founder, Chris Morgan, has been honoured for his hard work and dedication to bringing e-learning to individuals across the globe. He recently won both the Business Person of the Year award at the Hertfordshire Business Awards and Family Business Entrepreneur of the Year at the NatWest Great British Entrepreneur Awards.
We really do feel proud that our business’ aims and ambitions have been recognised in the positive light we had always hoped for.
The whole team at New Skills Academy are over the moon with this massive morale booster and are resolute on striving forward with an even stronger and more determined approach in the future.
Supporting Teens Unite
New Skills Academy and Teens Unite have recently established an amazing partnership between our two organisations. Since New Skills Academy is a place to pursue personal and professional development, Teens Unite will now be able to use the valuable content and courses we have in place for the young people that they support.
We will also be working closely with Teens Unite to help support and link our content with the workshops that they hold.

What our students say about us...
Yet another well laid out course. This is my 3rd course so far with New Skills Academy.
More than likely will be back for another one soon. This course was enjoyable to do, and I learnt a lot and passed first try. My certificate will be up on the wall soon.
Very interesting and helpful course. I ve learned a lot of interesting things about make up and the tutorials were very helpful and easy to understand. I really reccomend this course for everyone who is passionate about make up and wish to develop their skills and make a career from their hobby.
Wow what an incredible insight for the start of anyone's journey in property. This course gives you so much information and there are tests and questions on each of the modules. The course is very easy to follow and well laid out. You can actually make notes on the pages of each module using the notes tab! I am very excited to say that I passed and I only spent one week on this course. I will print all the PDF information and keep it in a file with my certificate. I feel very confident for my future plans now I have completed this course.
I took up this course initially to help me with my own dog, but found that as I worked through the material I actually started thinking that this could be something that I could use to make a second income. From start to finish I found the course engaging and interesting. I am now doing another dog related course and am experiencing the same level of enjoyment. I would recommend New Skills Academy without hesitation.
Lovely course for people who want to know the basics and of sign language. It's has helped me to get more of an understanding and will greatly benefit me in my workplace. So easy to pick up and the videos were easy to understand. Would definitely recommend to anyone.
This course is a great way to brush up on my rusty excel skills, I recommend this course to anyone looking for something to do during lockdown, it's easy to use and talks you through each stage step by step. It has given me the confidence I need to further my career.
Fantastic course! Well-presented and challenging with frequent assessments. I feel a serious sense of accomplishment having not studied for over 30 years! Videos that accompany each module are carefully thought out and informative. Am so impressed with this course, have now signed up for 3 other courses and recommending New Skills Academy to everyone!
This is a great course for any level of knowledge. Very easy to navigate, great practical tasks and explanations are very clear. You can revise any module with no problem. The test wasn’t too hard if you completed every module. It may be handy to make some notes before you start. Overall I'm very happy with my choice. Thank you New skills for my New skills :)
