Our career-enhancing, online distance learning Executive Assistant Diploma is accredited by NCFE CQ at Level 3.
The course is also CPD recognised (Continuous Professional Development).
This course extends beyond our Executive PA Diploma by covering additional units in leadership and managerial administration.
Business organisations from the UK and abroad choose this course to train their staff as it is the leading Executive Assistant Diploma available and well recognised in the business world.
The standard of training and communication is second to none. I would highly recommend this college, especially to those in employment as the course is so flexible and allows you to take a backward step if work is particularly busy and vice versa.
Suitable for those working as a PA/Secretary/Administrator and now looking to gain recognition for existing experience and to develop skills and knowledge to increase job opportunities, promotion and boost confidence.
