Have purchased an online training course for an excellent price and I am very happy with the modules, presentation and interesting details contained in the course.

Andrea Berta

I was already quite proficient in many areas that this course covers as I have worked similar jobs before but felt I could benefit from a qualification. This is a very in depth course that covers all areas of being a personal assistant, even ones that I wouldn’t have ever considered needing to learn.

The in-depth learning has built my confidence to put myself out there and try to get back into this career path. I particularly found the section on faxing to be very useful as it’s something that is done in most offices that I’ve found it difficult to come to grips with in the past.

I am already eyeing up more courses on the site and will be sure to give them a try soon.

Maria Casey

I started doing nails as a hobby, and my interest just carried on growing, I never thought that I would end up qualified!

This is an amazing way to turn your hobby into a nice little money maker and boost your own confidence and knowledge in the process.

Amy Armstrong

To be honest I was sceptical at first. There are many online courses to choose from but what intrigued me the most about this course is the number of modules (22 of them). This appeared to be more detailed than others. The reason I took this course is because I started a new role as a support tutor for a large training company. I already had some experience in working with learners who had special needs and learning difficulties but wanted more in-depth knowledge and tips to support my delivery. I also wanted to know more on the legal of side of SEN too. The course was offered at a large discount that did give me concerns! But I took the plunge and have been pleasantly surprised on how well it's been written and presented in manageable bite-size chunks. I was planning to study about a couple of hours a night but once I started I found it difficult to stop. It took me about 3 days to complete. The information is comprehensive but manageable. You can tell the person/persons who wrote this have a passion for supported learning and give practical strategies to support SEN and care about their sector and want to share their passion. Highly recommended study material. :-)

John Glover

Great course lots to learn and apply very informative, as a pharmacy assistant this course has given me more knowledge and confidence to provide great services to my customers.

Assignments were easy to follow and I would recommend anyone to study a course at New Skills Academy as you can do them in your own time.

Having a certificate not only boosts my confidence, but also shows my employers that i have learnt new skills and have gained more information that is useful for my area of work.

Thanks very much New Skills Academy, I will study with you again!

Shane Hills

I found this course most interesting. Having been a Receptionist in various industries over the years, and learning more at each location, this course helped focus my thoughts 'back to basics' and made me rethink some of the things I'd learnt. Very helpful, very concise, informative and uncomplicated.

It also gave great insights into the different kind of Reception work which can be so varied. I have been put forward for a Doctors Receptionist vacancy, a 'trade' I haven't ventured into yet, and will take what I have learnt from the course to the interview and hopefully it will stand me in good stead.
