Your future, your way!
At Shaw Academy, we offer education without limitations. At Shaw Academy Careers, we take our commitment to your future a step further.
If you are at the beginning of your career or on the brink of a change, you might be looking to gain new skills. If you are a mid-level professional or an entrepreneur building a business, you could be wanting to sharpen your skills. Perhaps you wish to take a course out of interest or curiosity. Or maybe you want to pick up from where you left off learning some time ago. During the lockdown, many people turned to online education simply to improve their mental wellbeing or to do something productive with their time. After all, there are many good reasons for people to choose to study online.
At Shaw Academy, we are here to support your learning goals. Our aim is to deliver great education that is affordable and accessible to all. Our vision stems from the belief that it is never too late to learn. Whether you are a 9-to-5 employee with little time to spare, a freelancer, a part-time worker, someone taking a break from the daily grind, or someone just starting in their profession, you are sure to find something at Shaw Academy to help you fulfil your learning objective.
From 700 students to 520,000 and counting
The Shaw Academy story began in 2012 as a small company with barely one course and only 700 students. Our vision was to become a leading online education provider.
Over the next few years, we refined our technology and processes, made our user acquisition strategy cost-efficient, and scaled our education models. In 2016, when we launched our proprietary classroom-based knowledge platform called Phoenix, we had 27 courses and more than 22,000 students enrolled. Using analytics and data science, we were able to offer personalised teaching and robust engagement to learning partners. We also introduced flexible payment plans for our users.
By 2019, we had secured over €9,000,000 in investment to restructure the company and scale the platform. We refined our existing offerings and launched new ones, focusing on practical learning and delivering a superior yet affordable education experience to students worldwide. The next year saw us focus on our growth strategy and market development.
Since 2020, we are offering more than 100 courses and have over 520,000 students enrolled. We have big plans for the future, and launching a career platform is one of them.

But the question that is almost always asked once a student completes a course and gains a qualification is: ‘what next?’
Since the outbreak of the Coronavirus pandemic, the education sector has been changing steadily, whether in terms of student behaviour or popularity of learning modes. Our figures show a huge rise in the number of people who enrolled in 2020 for online classes, compared to the numbers from previous years. In 2021, the trend is expected to continue.
In fact, we registered a surge of more than 500% in our enrolment figures during the lockdown, as people actively sought out opportunities to retrain for their careers or keep themselves engaged during a dull period. The most popular course topics were photography, graphic design, nutrition, social media, and marketing. After close review, we found that more than 20% of students were using our courses to improve their professional skills. One in ten respondents was looking to retrain to switch industries or careers, and the same numbers were looking to start their own business.
Lockdown allowed people the time to take stock of their lives and reflect on their lifestyles and vocations. It was an opportunity for people to reconsider where they were in their careers and ask themselves if they felt happy and fulfilled. With many sectors and industries being hit hard by the pandemic, many people found themselves actively looking to switch jobs or transition to a new industry.
In a survey of 2000 adults, we found that 47 percent had been rethinking their career choice since the start of the lockdown. Nearly a quarter of the respondents wanted to hone their skills while every one in five adults surveyed was looking to improve their professional capabilities. Nearly everyone believed that it is important to stay up-to-date with modern skills.
But whether someone is looking for a new job, exploring work options, or studying to advance in their current position, there is a pressing demand for clear, succinct, and relevant guidance amidst the noise of countless career counsellors and websites out there.
