So an advert popped up on my Facebook today about this course you can do to enhance your knowledge about making and selling cupcakes and cakes. It looks amazing, great reviews and the company seems legit too. However one thing that's making me hesitate is the price. It says it was £299 but a special Facebook offer makes it £25. That's a massive decrease and the content of the course is loads. You get an accredited certificate at the end proving you have knowledge about health and safety and business etc.

Can anyone offer any advice about if this is genuine or just in general about this company or similar courses? If it's real and everything then I definitely want to do it as I want to have my own bakery in the future.

It might be genuine. Never done a course quite like this but I've done Udemy courses that were meant to be £200 but were on sale at £10 or even free. They want to spread word about the course- a few people at £25 can be much more worthwhile than no one wanting to go to our knowing about a £300 course no one has tried before.

That's reassuring to know, thank you.

I’m not sure if they are completely legit. I did see some courses on reed.co.uk from the new skills academy and I did some research and a few problems about them popped up like one course done by new skills academy had to be taken down because according to the article (it was about a teaching course) they advertised the course and some of the modules (according to the article) weren’t even needed to be a teaching assistant. I also found some article where a lot of the online places that do these online courses, they come under different names but was “started” by the same person.

I got a facebook add for a 25$ makeup course from new skills academy. i was hesitant, but figured for that cheap, it wouldnt be the end of the world. so i took the chance and registered. the course its self is great. im learning a lot. but my real question is, can i put it on a resume? can i apply at a salon with this. is this a legitimate certificate? can this transfer to a diploma if i wanted to continue my education at a different school?

be careful with them...if im not mistaken this is shaw academy,they scam people by charging your acct without your consent and when you try to cancel they give you a problem and will not refund...they went in my acct on feb 26 2020,i signed up to them in may 2019 and cancelled the same day so i dont understand why they would take any money from me and wont refund it....i had to get my bank involved...had to do a chargeback and close the account....please read the reviews on shaw academy and then go to LINKEDIN and you will see new skills academy on shaw academys page which can only be done if they are affiliated....please be careful and take heed to this warning
