Welcome to New Skills Academy – Part of the Be-a Education Family

In November of 2013, a single question was asked:‘What do you want to learn?’ From there, a vision was born of comprehensive, high quality, and affordable online course availability. The name behind that vision was New Skills Academy.

When it comes to online schools, there are plenty, but at New Skills Academy we distinguish ourselves amongst the competition with our dedication to your long-term goals.

Freedom to Study

Offering a broad range of course options is a good start, but we envisioned so much more for our students. We take great pride in offering our students the ability to study anytime, anywhere, and it is our belief that an award winning business would settle for nothing less.

Often, people dream of pursuing a degree or certification but never find the time to follow through. We know life gets busy, which is why our customers can take our courses online from anywhere while still working. Students can access our courses from a PC, mobile phone or tablet; this means you can learn anywhere you go.

Once students access our courses, they are offered up to date subject information for a lifetime!

Student Testimonials

Amazing course with so much detail. All the modules are easy to read and flow from one subject to the next. It was really easy to enrol on the course, too, and I received my login information the same day that I enrolled. I would recommend the course to anyone wishing to pursue a course in floristry.

This course has been such a great help in my new career path as a PA. When I was job hunting before, I was having no luck, however now I have interest daily for PA roles all because of my new qualification. Easy to use at my own pace. Thanks!Student Name

Brilliant course. As a busy ,working mum this course gave a chance to change my career but it also gave me a chance to study in my own free time. Very easy wording, education videos, important information you can’t find online. The help from assistants is great. The minute I contacted them with question they always responded very quickly and professionally.

Monica Carter

If you’re looking for a refresher or new career then this is a Fantastic site for courses. This is the second course I’ve done on this site and there very in depth and I’ve learnt so much. Very pleased. Would highly recommend.
