The Brand New distance learning Personal Assistant Diploma is now available from NCC Home Learning!
A Personal Assistant, generally speaking, is someone who works closely with managerial or directorial staff. The role of a Personal Assistant is crucial to the success of many businesses as they carry out secretarial and administrative tasks as well as helping managers to make the best use of their time. It goes without saying that a Personal Assistant must possess excellent organisational skills!
Although the overall job purpose of the Personal Assistant is generally categorised as ‘to provide comprehensive support to senior management’, the practical role requires much more than impressive administrative skills. The scope of the role also requires strong personal skills and a firm grasp of business structure, requirements and procedures.
Personal Assistants are often the first point of contact, dealing with people both internal and external to the organisation, so it is essential that they make a good first impression. They also must possess an extensive knowledge of the organisation including the businesses aims and objectives and who its key personnel are.
There is no doubt that Personal Assistants are relied on heavily but when carried out successfully this can be a very satisfying and fulfilling job role.
The aim of the home study Personal Assistant Diploma is to provide an overview of the key areas of business understanding and personal skills that are required to work successfully in in the role of a Personal Assistant.
The course covers key subject areas in relation to the role of a Personal Assistant including understanding organisations, managing business information, legal and regulatory requirements and handling difficult situations to name just a few!
