What our students have said
“I have had a variety of jobs and most recently worked as a childminder for 7 years. As my own children became older, I wanted to return to office work and signed up for the Secretarial Diploma with a view of refreshing my skills. Before completing this, I began applying for jobs and was offered interviews for the first two jobs for which I applied, both of which were offered to me. I have accepted one and am thoroughly enjoying it. When I was offered the job it was mentioned that the face I was doing this course was a deciding factor.
I have really enjoyed the course and the confidence I have gained through the modules completed so far has been invaluable and already I find I am using features of Microsoft Office I was unaware of previously.” CL
