Frequently Asked Questions
Who is The Fitzroy Academy for?
We help out committed beginners.
Students, professionals, early and later learners, anyone doing (or wanting to do) social purpose work of any kind.
We cover business, design and digital skills in a way that's friendly for committed beginners.
Do you do in-person classes?
Nope! Physical classes are really expensive to run.
Other folks run great in-person classes, thought they’re pretty expensive for a cash-strapped individual.
We’re here to make good learning cheap and accessible to everyone, so no physical classes, sorry!
How does membership work?

How do I cancel my trial?
There's no need!
Simply stop using the site - we don't take your credit card details for the free trial.
Do I keep my intellectual property?
Yes! While your public canvases and comments can be seen online (just like on Facebook or Twitter), any private canvas or teams you create are entirely your property.
Why focus on social enterprise?
Social good folks are under-served in the digital and business skills training world, and they deserve special attention.
Non-profits and social enterprises have a different way of doing things to the rest of the business world.
While we’re pretty staunch in our support for social good folks, for-profit people that want to learn about social impact are absolutely welcome to get on board. :)
Why are you charging non-profits for this?
We want to create the quality we believe non-profit employees and vollies deserve.
Having an income means we will be sustainable without too much intervention from third parties; we don’t want to survive on grant funding.
We have global aspirations for our impact which means taking on investment, sourcing great teachers and taking good care our staff.
How do teams work?
Anyone can make a team.
Teams have their own discussion area, and list all canvases created by users in that team (unless they’re set to private).
Making a team is a great way to keep folks on the same page.
