New partnership, New skills

When we met Chris and Jake from New Skills Academy, we had no idea what an amazing opportunity would be presented to us and the Teens. 

New Skills Academy are a multi-award winning online education provider.  They have supported over a quarter of a million people to achieve their learning goals since Chris started the business at the end of 2013.  Their website hosts almost 600 courses with something for everyone, whether you’re entering the job market for the first time, thinking about changing direction or looking to continue your personal and professional development, you’ll find what you need to help you achieve.

Chris and Jake immediately got what Teens Unite do, and how the young people we support have been impacted by their diagnosis and treatment.  They started to think about ways in which they could work with us to support our beneficiaries.

New Skills Academy have very generously gifted access to their courses to Teens Unite, and we are working with them to see how we can link their content to our workshop activities, ensuring that the “take aways” from our days are even more valuable than they are now, and that, if after attending the workshop, you think that you might like to learn more, the opportunity is there.

Chris and Jake will be joining us at this year’s Activity Stay in August, sharing their story and helping Teens to develop individual, tailored learning packages.  If you’re a Teen and coming along to the Stay, take a look at their website and see what you think you might be interested in. 

And, there’s more! We are delighted to announce that New Skills Academy are Title Sponsors of Teens Unite’s Annual Golf Day, they’ll be joining us for a four-ball tournament at the prestigious Hanbury Manor course on 12th July. 

As Title Sponsors one of the team will be presenting the winner’s trophy – if you’d like to join the guys from New Skills Academy, get to know them, and perhaps see how they can help you and your colleagues with online learning, please come along.  You can book your team, here.

We are so excited by this new partnership and are really looking forward to working with Chris, Jake and the New Skills Academy team.
