Having just completed the Dyslexia Diploma in a few days I can honestly say I now have a much better knowledge of the condition and it gave me so much detail and information to learn in order to use in my teaching job. Very clear and easy to follow with great assessments at the end of each module. Also the multiple choice exam covered all of the important points I had learnt. Highly recommend this diploma. The fact I could study this online in my own time was a huge positive. I look forward to further study more diplomas related.

My course was the Pet Sitting and Dog Walking course. It is quite an interesting course! It was perfect to learn, and this what I was looking for.

Easy and clear to understand with many helpful pictures, very helpful extra information, very informative. I really enjoyed studying this course. For me it was fun ? I studied when I have had time, which is great for me in addition to my current job.

I hope I can start soon my new career with my newly learned skills. I am so excited. Fully accredited course which is important for me. I will definitely recommend New Skills Academy!

Tamas Fekete

I wanted a qualification to back up the practical experience I had gained in my last job. I found logging in and navigating the site very easy and I really like the flexibility it gave me; being able to study around my usual working day. The topics were well laid out and explained and I understood well through relevant examples.
The test at the end was straightforward however some rewording of the multiple answers would make it more understandable. But otherwise I'm really happy with this course and I have actually learnt more than I expected.
I would not hesitate to use this company again and have in fact bought another course since.

Jenna Woollon

It's very easy to use the website and you can access all the information you need to learn. The tutors are very quick to respond what makes even easier to understand and move on with the studies.

Very happy with the course.

Cindy Miceli

When I first started, I was quite anxious, but after seeing the course layout, it was very simple, effective and most important, engaging.

I especially liked the fact you don't become overwhelmed by the courses quantity of modules, and in the end you have to answer a certain amount of questions within a certain time limit. Every module's layout is very clean, fresh and comprehensive when it comes to its explanation.

If there was any part of the course I was unsure of, I would seek help from the advisors via the online chat and I could say they have been very friendly and helpful.

I'm glad I have taken this course through New Skills ACADEMY and I intend to undertake other courses by them.

Having just completed the Dyslexia Diploma in a few days I can honestly say I now have a much better knowledge of the condition and it gave me so much detail and information to learn in order to use in my teaching job. Very clear and easy to follow with great assessments at the end of each module. Also the multiple choice exam covered all of the important points I had learnt. Highly recommend this diploma. The fact I could study this online in my own time was a huge positive. I look forward to further study more diplomas related.

Tamas Fekete

I wanted a qualification to back up the practical experience I had gained in my last job. I found logging in and navigating the site very easy and I really like the flexibility it gave me; being able to study around my usual working day. The topics were well laid out and explained and I understood well through relevant examples.
The test at the end was straightforward however some rewording of the multiple answers would make it more understandable. But otherwise I'm really happy with this course and I have actually learnt more than I expected.
I would not hesitate to use this company again and have in fact bought another course since.

Jenna Woollon

It's very easy to use the website and you can access all the information you need to learn. The tutors are very quick to respond what makes even easier to understand and move on with the studies.

Very happy with the course.

Cindy Miceli

When I first started, I was quite anxious, but after seeing the course layout, it was very simple, effective and most important, engaging.

I especially liked the fact you don't become overwhelmed by the courses quantity of modules, and in the end you have to answer a certain amount of questions within a certain time limit. Every module's layout is very clean, fresh and comprehensive when it comes to its explanation.

If there was any part of the course I was unsure of, I would seek help from the advisors via the online chat and I could say they have been very friendly and helpful.

I'm glad I have taken this course through New Skills ACADEMY and I intend to undertake other courses by them.
