In an increasingly digital world, global demand for highly-skilled, technologically-savvy employees continues to grow. To meet this need, we combined our learning and technology expertise to create an innovative online program, Skills to Succeed Academy.
This free, digital, interactive program helps disadvantaged young people build skills and confidence to make career choices and develop employability skills. Skills to Succeed Academy opened its virtual doors in 2013 in the United Kingdom and recently expanded in Ireland, South Africa and Australia. It will be available in the United States in late 2017.

“I had applied to more than 200 jobs in 18 months with no success. After completing the Skills to Succeed Academy course, I completely reformatted my CV which generated more interest. I am now a Pension Data Analyst.”
“The Skills to Succeed Academy helped me identify my strong and weak skills and helped me choose which apprenticeships to apply for and understand what to expect at a workplace.”
“While there are plenty of courses helping young jobseekers find work, programs around sustaining employment and how to develop a career, the Skills to Succeed Academy does it best.”
"Due to financial constraints, I found myself unemployed, unmotivated and convinced I had no chance of pursuing my dream to become a chef. After taking the Skills to Succeed Academy training I was referred to a one-year apprenticeship opportunity at a bakery."
“The training was a real eye opener; it has motivated me to get more experience and get out there.”
Participants are actively involved in decision-based learning. With each decision, they receive instant feedback—both from the realistic characters with whom they interact in the training, and an online coach voiced by an experienced employability practitioner.
