Wow, a really helpful course, and a great way to get a portfolio of 'faces' that will enhance my repertoire. The course was so useful in highlighting important things to think about and also give a background into the history of facial art. I enjoyed the chapters and the ability to download or re -visit the chapters any time is a great bonus. Personally, for me, I wanted to have a recognizable and quantifiable certification that I can let potential customers see, and check, so they can feel confident I am a qualified and responsible face painter. I would recommend this course to anyone thinking about furthering their interest in face painting.

Felicity Sayers

I had looked at a lot of different courses like this to help my CPD as an NQT. Not only was it super value for money, but really easy to use and work with.

Having the opportunity to print or PDF information means I can keep any work as evidence.

I have been very impressed with this course and will defiantly look to complete similar courses soon.

Kim Hudspith

I decided to change career and few of my friends did similar on line courses and now work as teaching assistants.

This course is very well written and understandable.There is a lot of important information,all the chapters are well proportioned and enjoyable to read and understand.

I really liked worksheets on the end of modules which give you chance to summarise all the important parts in each module.I can recommend this course to anyone who would be interested in becoming teaching assistant.

Zuzana Duru

I am considering a career change, so this seemed a good place to start. The course was comprehensive, for the price and easy to follow. The videos were also really helpful, to help put the information into context. The instructor was very down to earth and easy to follow.

It is helpful to be able to print out the course notes, to refer to at a later date. I will also re-watch the videos when I need to.

The test at the end was multiple choice. There may have been information relating to this on the website, but I didn't find it. The questions were very specific, so you do need to have revised before you take the test.

All in all, I am impressed, for the £40 I spent.

Taking the International Massage Diploma Course at New Skills Academy was my best idea and my best investment in a long time. The flexible timing, professional yet easy understand material helped me to change career (and life) in no time. Absolutely brilliant.

Mihaly Galambosi

I really enjoyed taking time to complete this Floristry diploma course online. I have been flower arranging for a few years now and wanted to improve my knowledge and skills. The course was very detailed and the assignments were good, some very creative, I found the history very interesting and how the different periods used flowers for decoration. I am really interested in wedding flower design modules fourteen and fifteen were of particular interest to me. I also found the starting your own business section very helpful. I would definitely recommend for anyone interested in Floristry to take the course.

Wow, a really helpful course, and a great way to get a portfolio of 'faces' that will enhance my repertoire. The course was so useful in highlighting important things to think about and also give a background into the history of facial art. I enjoyed the chapters and the ability to download or re -visit the chapters any time is a great bonus. Personally, for me, I wanted to have a recognizable and quantifiable certification that I can let potential customers see, and check, so they can feel confident I am a qualified and responsible face painter. I would recommend this course to anyone thinking about furthering their interest in face painting.

Felicity Sayers

I had looked at a lot of different courses like this to help my CPD as an NQT. Not only was it super value for money, but really easy to use and work with.

Having the opportunity to print or PDF information means I can keep any work as evidence.

I have been very impressed with this course and will defiantly look to complete similar courses soon.

Kim Hudspith

I decided to change career and few of my friends did similar on line courses and now work as teaching assistants.

This course is very well written and understandable.There is a lot of important information,all the chapters are well proportioned and enjoyable to read and understand.

I really liked worksheets on the end of modules which give you chance to summarise all the important parts in each module.I can recommend this course to anyone who would be interested in becoming teaching assistant.

Zuzana Duru

I am considering a career change, so this seemed a good place to start. The course was comprehensive, for the price and easy to follow. The videos were also really helpful, to help put the information into context. The instructor was very down to earth and easy to follow.

It is helpful to be able to print out the course notes, to refer to at a later date. I will also re-watch the videos when I need to.

The test at the end was multiple choice. There may have been information relating to this on the website, but I didn't find it. The questions were very specific, so you do need to have revised before you take the test.

All in all, I am impressed, for the £40 I spent.

Taking the International Massage Diploma Course at New Skills Academy was my best idea and my best investment in a long time. The flexible timing, professional yet easy understand material helped me to change career (and life) in no time. Absolutely brilliant.

Mihaly Galambosi

I really enjoyed taking time to complete this Floristry diploma course online. I have been flower arranging for a few years now and wanted to improve my knowledge and skills. The course was very detailed and the assignments were good, some very creative, I found the history very interesting and how the different periods used flowers for decoration. I am really interested in wedding flower design modules fourteen and fifteen were of particular interest to me. I also found the starting your own business section very helpful. I would definitely recommend for anyone interested in Floristry to take the course.
