Being a Personal Assistant is a key role – and the rewards can be excellent, in terms of career satisfaction as well as salary. A good PA is essential to the smooth running of a business, making sure senior managers are fully informed, prepared for meetings and on schedule.
Our Personal Assistant course will give you the skills you need to make sure everything you organise works smoothly – including preparing and organising meetings, as well as managing your boss’s time.
The great news is that you don't need any previous experience or qualifications to take this course.
You will have your own personal tutor helping you with your course work and with any questions you may have. Plus you can contact our Student Advisors by email or phone for all the practical advice you may need – so we really are with you 100%
This course includes a number of assessments that you complete as part of your coursework and then forward to your tutor. Once your tutor has marked and graded your work, they'll send it back to you with their comments, if any.
You can choose to sit the GOAL Third Level Certificate in Business Administration if you wish to formalise your learning. As ECDL (PCs for Beginners) is free with this course you may also choose to sit the formal exams.
Please note exam and ECDL logbook fees are additional to course fees.
What Students Say
"I used to be a PA in France and when I moved to England 3 years ago I needed to take a course that would train me to do the same type of work over here. My daughter was very young when I first moved here so I couldn't go to a college during the day or on an evening – the course gave me the flexibility I needed and I've been able to do other courses to help me get a job as well." Isabelle Tran, ICS Graduate, Bristol.
