Professional Executive & Personal Assistant certificate – 10 months full time
This is a fantastic one year course to gain the skills and insight to support leaders, managers and organisations from a practical hands on point of view.
There is compelling evidence to show that often an executive personal assistant role can be a stepping stone to other roles within an organisation, and in some cases PA’s have gone on to become CEO’s and Managing Directors because they have spent valuable time supporting CEO’s and Directors and have witnesses and learned, first hand, the mechanics and nuts and bolts of how organisations function at the top level.
This course was built in conjunction with our partner recruitment agency as they have had experience for many years placing PAs and Executive Secretaries.
The curriculum is jam packed with top skills that are relevant and needed in the workplace. We believe there is no other curriculum like this in South Africa as it encompasses all aspects of what is needed to “hit the ground running” and immediately add value to any organisation. Our research team has also taken the time to establish the skills that you will need in order to increase your starting salary, whether you work here in South Africa or in the UK. You will find these skills listed in our career path.
And finally, the course is both theoretical and practical in nature and includes an Internship module whereby students will be able to work in a company or organisation during studies. This can often be an opportunity for students to display their learned skills and “get a foot in the door”.
