Having recently started a role in the payroll department I felt I needed to gain knowledge from as many sources as possible.

I found this course to be thorough, easy to understand and the website easy to navigate. It gave me a much greater understanding of payroll systems, the legal obligations of an employer and HMRC guidelines.

I would thoroughly recommend this course to anyone starting out or wanting to progress in a payroll role.

Wendy Spencer

Whilst doing an internship in an Estate Agency, I decided to study the Estate Agent Diploma to gain a better understanding of the regulations and the best ways to go about visits and building my network. I found the course to be very comprehensive and easy to follow.

I’d recommend this to anyone looking to broaden their knowledge of the field of Estate Agency. I found the time estimates to be right if you are simply reading, but I took several pages of notes and so took longer, as I wanted to really understand what I was reading.

Overall, comprehensive and easy to follow.

Lauren Newall

I am over the moon with this course and just had to leave a positive review.

The content is very relevant and completely up to date, it gives a fantastic overview of Advertising which is simple and easy to read and digest. It has helped me understand aspects in my current job role more than I needed. I am confident it would help anyone take the plunge into the marketing world!! The little tests along the way are also really handy, and tests what you have understood.

I would highly recommend this course. I am really looking forward to completing the remainder of this course, and browse what other courses are available. Thank you!!

Danielle Woodall

So far I am really enjoying the course. the details were sent through to me within 4 hours, even though there was up to a 48 hour wait.

This course is very well structured and has many helpful features, such as the recap option for each module, and the summary section at the end of each module.

I will definitely be recommending this course.

Melissa Newlin

Very interactive and quick to complete, highly recommended to anyone that is looking to further their knowledge. An excellent online course for CV’s and developing your skills. Fantastic for the money and worth taking time to complete with online help and notes to guide you through it.

New Skills Academy have recently won two high profile awards and after taking their online course you know the reason behind it with high quality course structure and accessibility.
All their courses have an excellent pass rate so it is suitable for everyone whether you are academic or not, which I find very good.
