What makes our courses so great?

Our courses are designed to give you 'how to' knowledge and skills that you can implement into your work and life right away.

Never boring. Always practical.

Subject Matter Experts.

Only the very best educators and highly successful practitioners appear on the Acuity Learning Academy platform. All of our courses are rigorously reviewed by specialist training delivery experts and content creators.

Continuous Assessment

Test your knowledge as it builds with interactive tests at the end of each module. When you successfully pass the test, the next module is revealed. If you're struggling our tutors are available to help you.

Microlearning for enhanced retention.

Our courses are designed around the principals of micro-learning. Short bursts of learning using a variety of media. Each component within a module is never longer than 15 minutes. This approach is proven to enhance knowledge retention and organic skill development.

Certified Professional Development

Our courses are certified with the Professional Development agency and, where appropriate, specialist professional bodies. All of our courses are rated in accordance with SWORM standards.

Our Students love us 

I have never experienced learning with microlearning and I wasn't sure it would work. Boy, was I wrong! I was able to jump in and out of the course work and I retained all the knowledge. I've never done a course that I can remember as well as my Acuity course. Bravo!

Sarah Samson

The course work is polished and engaging. I found it incredibly easy to absorb all the information. I have done a lot of on-line training but I've never had one that made learning easier than this. 

Thomas Greene

I am a single mother, working full-time as a marketing manager. My course was structured in such a way that made it possible for me to fit it into my hectic day. I was stunned that I was able to retain so much information. Highly recommend.

Carolyn Marshall

I run a busy marketing department for a large accountancy practice. I decided to send my whole team. Not only did everyone come back with skills that have made a tangible difference, they all agreed how energised they were and motivated to dig back into our campaigns.

Microlearning ...
because life can get in the way.

Microlearning is an incredible learning technique that breaks information into bite-sized, digestible chunks, making it easier to understand and remember. All Acuity courses are designed and built using microlearning.
