At age 44, I took a notion to start a new career, so I booked a Travel & Tourism online course with New Skills Academy.

I was actually pretty nervous when I looked at the modules as it’s been years since I studied!

I was pleasantly surprised at how well the course flowed and how uncomplicated it was. The presentation of the course was easy to read and understand.

When I got to the final test, I was nervous, but had no need to be. It was a general test of knowledge and I passed with 70%. I feel proud!

Angela Wilson

The course is simple and easy to follow, the videos are a great way to see it all in action, the pictures are a great way for you to get some inspiration too especially with the nail art. I have referred this course to a friend already.

Lindsay Todd

This course will give me the chance to engage further in my search for a career. I found this course helpful for both refreshing my memory of known skills as well as teaching me new ones.

I appreciated the chance to engage in this course as it was very interactive. I could both watch videos as well as read explanations. I could then apply that in a practice element of the course.

I have an ICT A Level and I didn’t know some of the function that were possible on word. It has been beneficial to me, even though I’m well versed in Microsoft Word.

Shelley Mckeown

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

Amazing course! Clear training videos and everything you need to know to become a nail tech! I'm so pleased I decided to do this. It's put me on track to work for myself and own my own business

Kelly Goulding

I can honestly say that I have truly enjoyed learning about Microsoft Excel.
The step by step modules (36 of them!), breaking down each part of Excel was easy to understand and absorb. The explanations of each stage was handy for notes as well. The videos were helpful for directions and practise. The worksheets were helpful to put learning into action.
The test at the end was very good in covering many aspects of Excel, however I would have liked to know what I did not get correct. This would have been helpful.
However, I would gladly use a New Skills Academy course again.
