Back in November of 2013, New Skills Academy was founded, based on a single question - ‘What do you want to learn?’. Eight years later, this fledgeling company has become one of the fastest-growing online learning platforms in the world.
Offering a wide variety of categories and courses, New Skills Academy takes great pride in putting the needs of the student first. No matter what age, stage of life or dreams you have, we’ve got a course and an option for you.
As a result, the people have spoken, and in 2021, we have officially reached the 800,000-student mark. This is truly a remarkable milestone, and, as always, we would like to thank and celebrate every student who came to us to change their lives.
New Skills Academy aim to cater to every need and make the learning process as convenient as possible without ever compromising on standards and credibility.
So how did we get to 800,000? We’d like to think it’s a combination of things.
With over 800 courses and 20+ course categories, we pride ourselves on offering as wide a variety as possible. From dog grooming to accounting and everything in between, we have something for everyone.
Our course categories include Admin/Secretarial/HR, Animal Care, Beauty, Business, Computing, Education, Entertainment, Fashion & Design, Finance, Fitness, Food Safety, Health & Safety, Horticulture, Hospitality & Tourism, Language Courses, Medical, Personal Development, Sales/Marketing, Social/Care, Vocational/Hobbies, and Writing.
Our courses and lesson plans are designed and developed by experts and are detailed and robust while still being easy to understand. This combination of accessible yet credible content is something we pride ourselves on and it seems as if our students feel the same way.
All courses are available on multiple platforms and can be accessed at any time convenient to the learner. In today’s demanding world, most of us need to fit studying into every free moment and can’t study full-time, which makes this feature a very attractive one.
We have a support team available to each student throughout their journey with us and they’re able to answer any questions and address any concerns.
Our courses are created by experts and are also CPD approved, which means they cover everything they’re supposed to and that you’re gaining credible knowledge that will increase your ability and prospects in your chosen industry.
While these characteristics play a huge role in achieving our recent milestone, we would be nowhere without our loyal and devoted student base.
We would like to thank every one of them for contributing to our growth, and their happiness and satisfaction is why we do what we do.
So, what is it about New Skills Academy that makes our students so happy? Who best to hear it from than the students themselves.

“Dropped on a pet first aid course on Groupon and decided to give it a go. Thoroughly enjoyed it and found it so easy to access and navigate. After finishing I booked 2 more courses through New Skills academy. Found them so informative and got some offers after through email. I will be booking more, they're brilliant!!!!!”

What our students say about us...
Excellent course, well explained and easy to understand. The course can be done at my own pace and is available on various devices. The layout of the course was excellent and the notes options is very good. The content is perfect and well structured, making it easy to understand and follow. I will definitely be taking more courses in the future.
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.
The course was clearly set out with helpful end of week tests which built my knowledge. Being dyslexic I found the course was set out in an easy to understand way. I was able to pass the test on my first attempt. The downloaded pdf are a useful resource that you can keep forever. Looking forward to the next course
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.
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!
I found this course incredibly useful, as it provided me with practical knowledge which I can implement in my role as a Support Worker. The videos were clear and concise, and the downloadable worksheets reinforced what I had learned as I was able to put pen to paper. Overall, a fantastic course for a great price! I am looking forward to taking on my next one.
It was an eye opening course that was flexible and easy to access. I was able to complete it from the comfort of my own home whilst also having the tasks to complete which enabled me to check my knowledge. I know feel much more confident in my field of work and really enjoyed doing it.
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.
