What people are saying

Simon Pick

Assistant Head, Bridlington School, East Riding of Yorkshire

The National Talent Academy has been great for us. The programme is very easy to implement and use. Learners like it. Our cohort is 25% SEN and 50% FSM and they could all get through it. The forums say some inspectors spend a lot of time on careers, whereas others don't look at it all. It gives me peace of mind to have a certificated programme in place.

The results have been remarkable. This is a valuable resource that every student should take advantage of. The platform is easy to navigate and the National Talent Academy team has been brilliant and helped every step of the way. 

Carl Kemp

Careers Lead, George Green's School, Tower Hamlets

I like the structure of the content from its questions to the styling. It's simple, easy to follow and super easy to deliver to a class of students. The model can also be delivered in small blocks of time, so it's super flexible and can be fitted into a busy school.

Our rationale


The workplace is changing fast

Some skills have a short shelf-life because the workplace is changing fast.   

Futureproof career skills are useful

Ideally, learners would acquire skills that will always be relevant whatever the future may hold. 

Endorsed certificates

Learners need a way to demonstrate their skills to future employers via endorsed certificates.
