About Us

Finding Inspiration in Every Turn

At Skills Growth Academy, we are a team of educational professionals with a passion for helping people achieve their career and academic goals as a key facet of Ixion and Shaw Trust. We are motivated by a drive to give our students the ability to progress in their current industry, continue onto further education, or even start a new career.

With the work of our dedicated course tutors, modern learning facilities and excellent resources offered to all our learners, we provide our students with the best opportunity to learn and succeed in whichever of our programmes they choose.

What we do

We provide a range of industry recognised level 3 qualifications in business and beauty, including Diplomas in Make-up Artistry, Nail Technology, Beauty Therapy, Hairdressing, and Barbering from VTCT. We also offer the National Foundation Diploma in Business from Pearson.


Our accredited courses equip our learners with the key skills needed to become a professional in their chosen field.


​Our course tutors are industry professionals who are able to impart their knowledge and wealth of experience to our learners. All qualifications which we offer are eligible for Government-funding through the Advanced Learner Loan, meaning anyone is able to enrol onto one of our courses, regardless of their income.
