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.

his is a really great course, its content is really useful.

It’s great value for money and it’s not at all stressful. It’s so easy to understand, yet it covers complex aspects regarding safe practices. It let’s you stop and start the course, which means I can still work in a full time job, which won’t effect me financially.

This has been the best decision to complete this course. I’m really keen to learn more skills, and maybe do a few more courses to expand my skills set. I will most definitely be using New Skills Academy to help me!

Samantha Holmes

A clear and concise course that allowed me to go at my own pace, with no time limit. A great way to learn and study from home so that you can fit it around your daily lifestyle.

With demonstration videos and help always on hand, the course is easy to follow and understand. The course taught me a variety of techniques and methods to apply Make-Up and has also given me the advice and guidance I needed to go forward with a career.

The end test is challenging so it is important to study and revise all modules in order to pass.

I use Sage 50 every day at work, but wanted a qualification on my CV to reflect this. I thought this course was well set out and very informative.

I really appreciated that the course is split into 10 modules as this made it very easy for me to stop and come back to when convenient. I found with work and 4 kids this was very helpful and with a good feature that it saved the place where I was so you could return at any time.

I must admit I was very surprised that I learnt new things and really glad I took the course. I would recommend this course to anyone thinking of using Sage for the first time or like me already use it daily. I really appreciated the fact that I used my tablet while taking the course.

I must be honest at 36 years old, this was my first course taken online, I was generally really surprised how easy to it was to order/book on line. Overall I felt this was a very positive experience for me I not only gained a qualification, I also gained confidence and have now book up 2 more courses.

I honestly cannot recommend this course highly enough for anyone thinking of pursuing a career in Wedding Planning. The course was very obviously written by industry professionals. Course content was easy to understand, yet thorough and in depth. I also love that this course covered such a diverse range of topics including weddings from different cultures and religions, not just the standard white-dress chapel wedding. I really feel as though this course has given me a bounding head start in the wedding planning industry and I can't wait to get in there and start my own business. Highly recommend - worth every penny :)

I am over the moon with my experience in completing my first online course with New Skills Academy. I found the whole process quick and efficient and the site very easy to navigate. I found it helpful to complete short tests at the end of each module as I feel this help to review the information I have read and confirm that I understood it and could retain the information as well. I found the course to be very well written and the information provided to be interesting and relevant to the course and the final test to be efficient in recapping everything I had learnt throughout the course. I completely the course quite quickly as was able to study using my iPhone as the course was iOS compatible which I found to be the best way of accessing the course, information and tests. I'm thrilled that I passed my first course and can't wait to get started on the next one. Thank you for such a positive and rewarding experience.
