It starts with an initial free consultation which is designed to help you analyse
your needs. This includes looking at what you are planning to achieve, the time
and resources are available to you and how best to utilise these.
Why this is important. Most computer courses follow a set syllabus of units in order
to meet a criteria set by an examining board. The course may contain elements that
you neither need nor want to learn. The course level may be below or above your skills
level. You may have to attend a set number of lessons at a specified location - which
may interfere with the running of your business. At the end of the course, you may
find that you have spent a considerable amount of time learning things about software
you may never use or it may be simply that you still have to find the time to implement
the skills into your office practice.
How Office-Admin courses differ:
A course is created specifically for you and your business after consultation.
You choose exactly what you want to learn and the level you want to start at.
You only pay for what you want to learn.
You will not waste time learning things you already know or won’t use.
You decide how much time you want to spend on learning on a week by week basis.
You select your start date and your completion date.
You choose the method of delivery for your lessons from a number of available options.
During consultation, you will be given guidance on which programme features may better
serve your office practice. Your course is then formulated to include only those
features which you agree will be helpful to you and your business. Because the course
programme is designed so specifically for your business - and this includes practical
exercises which may only be applicable to your business - the resulting course programme,
when completed, can also be retained by you.
This means that by the end of the course you can possess a complete training manual
which you can then keep and use for future staff training and development. (optional)
Your learning needs are assessed and discussed
Your programme of learning is designed on contract
You received tuition and learning materials
You receive a completed, personalised manual of your course
