  6. I decided to study the Executive Assistant Diploma – Level 3 with Lewis College as it was the perfect way to study whilst working full time, and I am so glad that I finally was able to fit this into my career.

    I have been a PA/EA for the last 15 years and even though I had gained all the experience through my career, I always felt there was something missing as I didn’t have the academic “back-up” to demonstrate my capabilities. This course has really taught new ways to work more efficiently and has expanded my knowledge and skills within the role.

    The tutors are super friendly and provide you with thorough feedback to help you progress throughout the course.

  7. I have been a PA for 6 years now, although I had good knowledge of the role, I felt I needed to upskill and refresh myself in all areas.
    The diploma covers all aspects of my role, and it provides all the skills I require to do my role more efficiently and effectively and this is turn provides more support to my boss.
    It’s great to complete the diploma out of work time and around family life and it’s good to have support and guidance from the tutors as and when required.
