Add Skills Management to the Academy

Once an academy administrator has enabled the Skills Management 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.

Navigation: UKG Pro Learning > Admin > Skills Management > Edit and Add Skills

UKG Pro Learning provides you with several common skills you can use for your academy. The skills provided are of the default Skill Type. To see all of the available system-defined skills just select the + Add from Database 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 Skill 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 at the top of the list and select Add.


Once the skills have been added to your academy, you can edit them based on your needs. Select 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). You can also select a language for each of your academy Skills.

Note: The languages available here are the UI languages you have selected in your Academy's settings. Each user will see the skills titles and descriptions that are saved for their UI language.


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 selecting Group Skills.


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


In the column on the right are all the skills that are associated with your Academy. To add skills to a Group select the plus (+) symbol. You can remove any skill by selecting its "x".


The next step is associating these skills and skill groups with specific jobs and courses.
