How to add Skills for my Academy?

Once you have enabled the Skills feature for your academy, you are ready to find and add the desired academy skills! The skills that you will add will be the ones that will be assessed on each user. So, you need to determine which skills are relevant to your Academy.

To do so, just click on the Admin tab, select the Skills Management tab from your Administration panel and click on Edit Skills.


Schoox provides you with several common skills you can use for your academy! It’s like having a library of skills available! These skills are called System Defined Skills. To see all of the available system defined skills just click on the Add System Defined Skill button.


A list of skills will appear and you can filter the results based on the Industry you are interested in, the Tier and the Skills Category.


If you want to add one of the system defined skills to your academy, select its type (if any) and click on the +Add button next to the skill title. If you don't see a skill you'd like to use you can add your own, custom skills! To do so, type the skill title into the field on the top of the list and click Add New.


You can add as many custom skills as you'd like! Custom skills will have black theme color while system defined skills will have light blue!


Once the skills have been added to your academy, you can edit them based on your needs! Just click on the edit icon next to the relevant skill title!


From this page you have the option to edit the selected skill along with the description per proficiency level (if you have enabled the proficiency levels for your academy).


Don’t forget to Save your changes when finished!

Once you have added all the appropriate skills you can put them into groups for easy distribution by clicking Group Skills.


To add a group, name a new group, and click Add New. To add skills to a Group click on the arrow next to the group.


In the column on the right, there are all the skills that are associated with your Academy. To add skills to a Group click the plus symbol. You can remove any skill by clicking its "x".


The next step is associating these skills and skill groups to specific jobs and courses!
