In the working world practical hands-on skills are the key to success and the best jobs go to those who can demonstrate an ability to perform from day one.
From September 2019 we are renaming our Executive PA Diploma to the Professional Business Diploma. The course content is the same but the new name better reflects the outcomes and prospects of our graduates rather than working exclusively as a PA. We train our students to follow a career in any role in any business sector.
We keep our group sizes to an absolute minimum with an emphasis on securing as much personal tutor contact as possible. This helps students progress rapidly by addressing challenges as and when they occur.
The course is intensive with 21 hours teaching per week, Monday to Friday.
There are no external examinations; every student is continually assessed from day one in each of their subjects. Each student has a 6 weekly appraisal which outlines their performance and progress to date. At the end of each course Diplomas are awarded based on students achieving the following:
Distinction with Honours – each subject grade must be a minimum of 80% plus attendance of 95% and over
Distinction – average of subject grades 75% and over plus attendance of 90% and over
Merit – average of subject grades 60% and over plus attendance of 85% and over
Pass – average of subject grades 50% and over plus attendance of 80% and over.
