I am 3/4 the way through my Legal Secretary Diploma Course, I have studied full time and it has taken me about a week (few hours per day) Very informative course which makes you memorise each module well, with worksheets at the end of each module. Gave a brilliant knowledge base into the different areas of Law and the secretaries roles within them. I have never done an online course before as thought they were not very credible, but this they are good providing you are willing to put the work in, all the information is provided for you , you just need to use it. Thoroughly recommend to anyone who has some spare time and wants to expand their legal knowledge - this course is not just for legal secretaries!!

Georgia Smith

I was worried that I wouldn't be able to manage this my course and work. But to my surprise and comfort this course is set out so well I find I'm enjoying learning again and look forward to putting my studying into practice in my future job role....it's brilliant !!!!

Marie Whitfield

The course was easy to find on the website, and plenty of information regarding course modules, outcomes and any frequently asked questions. There is plenty of choices for a range of courses, which made it harder for me to decide what course I wanted to pursue! The price of the courses are reasonable and doing it in your own time while in employment is a plus for myself. Trying to find time while in full time work is hard in itself, but having a good provider online it has opened the door for me to learn new things and expand my knowledge. I would definitely recommend to anyone who would want to learn online.

Sophie Mangano

A great course to introduce and explain the roles and responsibilities of the PA and Administrator, or as a refresher to those wishing to return to the workplace.

The modules are jargon free and clearly laid out with exercises to complete at your own pace. There are useful notes and lists that help to make time management easier in the busy work environment.

I am impressed that the modules can be downloaded, saved or printed for future reference - many other courses do not offer this.

I have almost completed my Admin & PA Diploma and it has given me the confidence to apply for my first admin job in some years.

Meryl McMorran

Great course which is simple to do but you get a great qualification in the end and if you fail a unit it is simply to retake.

Full knowledge of area so it makes it easier to start a business and tells you the legal things you need to know as well

Charlie Thurlow

The contents on these classes are awesome! I’m currently an architecture student and was a little worried because is an online course and sometimes it leaves doubts or some subjects are not well debated, but I learned so much, it also improved my landscaping knowledge, its satisfying.

I need to say: congratulations for modules organization, the website layout, and the support. Seriously, every once and a while I take online classes and I’m surprised with the New Skills Academy, I totally recommend these classes for anybody that like gardens, also for architecture students – this is essential for our area.

Hopefully I can find something else to study with New Skills Academy!

I am 3/4 the way through my Legal Secretary Diploma Course, I have studied full time and it has taken me about a week (few hours per day) Very informative course which makes you memorise each module well, with worksheets at the end of each module. Gave a brilliant knowledge base into the different areas of Law and the secretaries roles within them. I have never done an online course before as thought they were not very credible, but this they are good providing you are willing to put the work in, all the information is provided for you , you just need to use it. Thoroughly recommend to anyone who has some spare time and wants to expand their legal knowledge - this course is not just for legal secretaries!!

I was worried that I wouldn't be able to manage this my course and work. But to my surprise and comfort this course is set out so well I find I'm enjoying learning again and look forward to putting my studying into practice in my future job role....it's brilliant !!!!

Marie Whitfield

The course was easy to find on the website, and plenty of information regarding course modules, outcomes and any frequently asked questions. There is plenty of choices for a range of courses, which made it harder for me to decide what course I wanted to pursue! The price of the courses are reasonable and doing it in your own time while in employment is a plus for myself. Trying to find time while in full time work is hard in itself, but having a good provider online it has opened the door for me to learn new things and expand my knowledge. I would definitely recommend to anyone who would want to learn online.

Sophie Mangano

A great course to introduce and explain the roles and responsibilities of the PA and Administrator, or as a refresher to those wishing to return to the workplace.

The modules are jargon free and clearly laid out with exercises to complete at your own pace. There are useful notes and lists that help to make time management easier in the busy work environment.

I am impressed that the modules can be downloaded, saved or printed for future reference - many other courses do not offer this.

I have almost completed my Admin & PA Diploma and it has given me the confidence to apply for my first admin job in some years.

Meryl McMorran

Great course which is simple to do but you get a great qualification in the end and if you fail a unit it is simply to retake.

Full knowledge of area so it makes it easier to start a business and tells you the legal things you need to know as well

Charlie Thurlow

The contents on these classes are awesome! I’m currently an architecture student and was a little worried because is an online course and sometimes it leaves doubts or some subjects are not well debated, but I learned so much, it also improved my landscaping knowledge, its satisfying.

I need to say: congratulations for modules organization, the website layout, and the support. Seriously, every once and a while I take online classes and I’m surprised with the New Skills Academy, I totally recommend these classes for anybody that like gardens, also for architecture students – this is essential for our area.

Hopefully I can find something else to study with New Skills Academy!
