What’s New at New Skills Academy?

New Skills Academy prides itself on offering more than 800 online courses across a broad field of subjects to help you increase your skill levels and improve your employability and career options.

We have over 800,000 students and would love you to be one of them.

Website Changes

We have introduced exciting new changes to our website design and our course structuring. Lots of special offers and rewards are coming your way too. 

Have a look at our website which has had a facelift. It has a fresh new look with an easy-to-use dashboard and a mobile-friendly design to make browsing easy wherever you are. We know that many of our students use a wide range of electronic devices to access their courses, depending on their circumstances at the moment. With our mobile-friendly platform, you can continue the work that you started on your laptop, even if you are sitting on the bus!

Celebrating Success

Our Achiever Boards are also an innovation. Celebrate your success by taking a photo of yourself holding your certificate and upload it onto our Achiever Board so we can share your accomplishments with others. We are very proud of our high achieving students.

Achiever board


We offer great rewards for our high achievers. Dedicated students can collect virtual trophies for completing modules and logging in regularly. These trophies can be redeemed as vouchers against course discounts and free courses.


Leader Board

We have an exciting new leader board where you can compare your achievements against those of other students. Not only is this very motivating for you, but you might win the monthly prize for the highest achiever!

Besides our regular offers, we also offer you exclusive special offers which you can access from your account, using your unique XO student discount card.
