About the Academy

The Skills to Succeed Academy is a free online interactive learning solution, created specifically to meet the needs of jobseekers. We initially designed the Academy with a focus on 15-24 year olds, however, the content is relevant to all ages. The programme uses virtual coaches, gamification and simulations to help users navigate their career paths while equipping them with skills they need to find long-term employment.

Our desire to create the Academy was part of Accenture's Global Corporate Citizenship initiative which commits to helping 3 million people around the world attain the skills required to get a job or build a business by 2020. So, we brought together a number of partners, including employment advisors, a creative communications and learning agency, innovative software specialists and, most importantly, young job seekers themselves to work alongside us to develop the Academy.
