About The Course
How do I achieve the qualification?
The course is made up of 11 mandatory modules, all of which must be achieved to pass the qualification. You will find details of the modules below. During the course, you will cover topics such as project management, communication, understanding administrative legislation, business processes, administrative activities, and decision making to improve the business’ administrative performance – as well as managing your own professional development.
Will I Need To Attend Classes?
Great news – there are no classes to attend! Your Parenta tutor will visit you on a regular basis to observe you at work and check you’re fulfilling the course requirements. You’ll also need to complete coursework online too, but you can carry this out at your own pace and benefit from phone and online support from your Parenta tutor if there’s anything at all that you need help with.
How long will the course take me to complete?
As with anything worthwhile, this course requires you to dedicate some of your time to it. This will be up to 18 months in total if you are working full-time – and up to 33 months if you are working part-time. But remember, afterwards, you’ll have the fantastic feeling of gaining a professionally recognised qualification and set yourself up for a long and rewarding career. You will be assigned your own tutor to support you throughout your qualification. However, you will be required to do some independent learning.
The Total Qualification Time in hours for this course is 550, a minimum of 370 of which will be guided learning with your tutor. You should set aside approx. 10 hours a week to work towards your qualification.
You may prefer to split this time up into a few evenings a week and some time at the weekend, but it’s entirely up to you.
The course is made up of 2 parts, as follows:
Main part of the course – 15 months if you are working full-time – and up to 30 months if you are working part-time.
