AccreditationEach and every New Skills Academy course is recognised by an accreditation body called the CPD. The CPD is a reliable certification source in the United Kingdom, established in 1996 to govern continuing education and professional development. CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development, and the CPD Certification Service aims to give you the confidence in any course that you’re thinking of investing in. The CPD website says, “The CPD Certification Service provides support, advice and recognised independent CPD accreditation compatible with global CPD principles”.
How Does a Course Get Accredited?New Skills Academy is recognised and accredited by the CPD Service in order to ensure that all of our courses follow the same guidelines and offer you the same quality of education. By working with the CPD, we ensure that every course is organised into formalised knowledge, as well as a structured and recognised approach. It’s not just a matter of yes or no - the CPD takes accreditation seriously and plays an active role in the courses that they certify.
How Will My Course Be Recognised?When you complete a course, you have not only gained a New Skills Academy certificate, but also a CPD certified qualification. Since the CPD is recognised across the United Kingdom and even globally, this means that your hard work does not go unnoticed. CPD considers accredited courses “a proactive and conscious form of learning which uses various methods to help individuals either learn new skills or develop existing ones”. Not to mention, New Skills Academy courses have won their fair share of awards and even been recognised by major media outlets. When you complete your course, the qualification you gain can be verified and validated at any time via the New Skills Academy website.
Why Take a Certified Course?In today’s fast-paced and ultra-competitive world of business, standing apart from the crowd is of the essence. Simply being qualified is not enough to ensure that you will get the chance to excel, develop and work in a job that you love. Nowadays, investing in your own education and working towards new goals is an easy way to show everyone around you that you are being proactive. Picking out something new to learn, expanding on something you already know or certifying some of your abilities, is a great way to create an impressive CV and feel confident in your skills.

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