ew Skills Academy is thrilled to announce that our co-founder, Chris Morgan, received the NatWest Great British Entrepreneur Award for Family Business Entrepreneur of the Year.
We are very proud of Chris for all he has accomplished. At only 34, Chris has created multiple successful businesses, developed strong relationships with just about everyone he has worked with, and overcome personal challenges to achieve the success he has today.
Chris was able to see the importance and appeal of ‘leisure learning’, online learning and continuous education before many others, creating New Skills Academy as a way to help others indulge in their passion for learning.
Setting up an e-learning business was a risk, but with Chris’ vision, dedication and business skills, he and his brother Dan transformed it from a small online school to flourishing business, with nearly 100,000 students.
The NatWest Great British Entrepreneur Awards have been handed out to hardworking and inspiring British entrepreneurs for the past five years. The Award recognises the stories and motivations behind each winner, rather than focusing solely on financial success.
The ceremony celebrates individuals in 12 different categories, including Family Business of the Year.
This year saw a surge in applications, tripling previous years, with over a thousand entries received across five regions. The founder, Francesca James, talked about the struggle the judges had in selecting winners, as the entries received this year were “the best ever”. In the end, they selected entrepreneurs who have impacted their industry, entrepreneurship in their region and the greater UK economy.
We hope you will join us in extending our congratulations to Chris for this wonderful acknowledgement of all he does for the region.
Chris truly embodies all that the NatWest Great British Entrepreneur Awards values and we are so proud of him for this amazing accomplishment.

What our students say about us...
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.
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!
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 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 :)
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.
