Distance/Online Learning

About the course

Distance learning courses enable you to boost your career with a nationally recognised qualification even if you don’t have the time to attend training sessions. You will work your way through the qualification submitting work every 2 weeks, achieving within approximately three months.
This qualification provides you with the knowledge that is required to work in a range of environments in a business administration role. You will know how to carry out administrative tasks such as managing information and supporting events and will be able to apply your knowledge in a variety of industries and job roles.
The course is split into seven manageable units:

  • Principles of providing administrative services
  • Principles of business document production and information management
  • Understand communication in a business environment
  • Understand employer organisations
  • Principles of developing working relationships with colleagues
  • Principles of business administrative tasks
  • Understand how to prepare text

This course can be studied purely on-line and is ideal for those who are happy to work independently using our fully supported online learning platform. For those local to Swindon, are returning to learning and would prefer to receive one-to-one support from a tutor, we offer a workbook option.
