Personal Assistant Diploma Overview

Personal Assistant courses online are the perfect option for anyone looking to advance their skill set or look to a new career without giving up their current job.

The most important asset for any business, irrespective of its size, industry or sector, is its people. How they perform is not their only concern, but how they are supported to do their job.

Personal assistants are an essential part of the support process in any business or organisation, as well as contributing to moving the business forward.

Personal assistant training courses cover a wide variety of topics. This alone should demonstrate the value that companies and businesses place on the skills and abilities of a PA.

It is widely accepted that a PA offers strong administrative support for senior management, from diary management to travel management. However, the position of PA requires more than a smattering of admin skills and abilities which is why comprehensive PA courses online are a shrewd move for anyone currently acting as a PA or want to pursue a career as one. 

The modules look at a wide variety of areas that a PA can be expected to encounter;

  • Understanding organisation structure and culture is an integral part of being a personal assistant
  • PAs are expected to have a professional approach at all times
  • Effective communication is also examined in some detail, as are the skills of time management
  • Managing business information and data is an integral role for a PA
  • Developing and maintaining office management systems, procedures and policies are often the responsibility of a PA
  • Developing customer service relations, and working well with others is also expected
  • Legal and regulatory requirements may also be under the remit of a PA
  • There is no doubt that during your career as a PA, you will be called upon to handle sensitive or difficult situations

Why study PA courses online?

Also known as distance learning PA courses, learning from home is a great way to study and gain qualifications. You can study this course online via our learning portal or opt for a paper copy of the materials.

Online PA courses allow you to study in your own time and at your own pace. You can develop your skill set without having to give up work, with study fitting in around family and social commitments.

Many students stay with NCC and look to complete additional or specialist qualifications. For example, you may want to strengthen your skills with the online courses in human resources or another business administration or management course.

  • Fortunate I found them!

    By on 16 May 2016
    I am still doing my course and must say that it is being a very positive experience indeed. I enjoy every single bit of each module I work on and it is being very enriching. I now feel more professional at work and have gained so much confidence and
    knowledge.

    This online course has greatly met my expectations so far and would recommend it to anybody. I have felt very supported and very encouraged as per my tutor´s feedback.
    I very much appreciate NCC Home Learning and feel fortunate I found them.

  • Positive feedback motivated me

    By on 10 May 2016
    As much as I don't like writing assignments (one of the reasons I didn't complete university), the process and learns from this have been worth it.

    Being able to do the assignments in your own time scale and get help as and when you need it. The positive regular feedback I received motivated me to keep going and to produce well written assignments. Thanks Helen.

  • Excellent way to learn, great service.

    By on 30 March 2016
    I've had a great experience with the course that I decided to study. I really wanted to improve my knowledge about this field and I thought this way could be the best way to do it. Studying online has been difficult sometimes because I'm currently working but this school has helped me all the time and I've felt supported during the whole course by all its team and my tutor in particular.
    Now I definitely think this has been a great choice. Life is full of decisions and this decision has been a good one, I don't regret at all. Now I am able to grow up professionally because I've learned at lot of technical and important matters about my specialty and this is going to be a great point into my c.v.
    Thank you again to all your support and all your help. My experience has been great. Highly recommended.

  • Would recommend for sure

    By on 14 March 2016
    This is a very convenient way of learning. I work full time with two young children and a dog and so finding the time to complete a diploma is hard. NCC have been great and the IT support is wonderful.

    I would recommend them for sure.
    Dear Jennifer Ashington
    Thank you for your recommendation along with your 5 star review of the Personal Assistant Diploma. We are really pleased that you find this method of learning meets your needs, we also appreciate that it can be difficult to fit education around a busy home life. Please do not hesitate to contact the team if we can provide any additional support.

    Kind regards,

  • Excellent Support

    By on 11 March 2016
    Learning via NCC has opened up a whole world of possibilities for me. I've been able to apply (& been accepted) to a professional body and also earned some CPD points too!

    The tutor feedback/assistance is structured really well and leaves you feeling motivated. The admin team are very quick to respond to queries and a friendly bunch to boot! By completing my course I am aiming to go for Fellowship status with the IAM. I wouldn't have been able to do this course via attendance at a college, so by doing it through NCC has enabled me to reach my personal objectives.

  • Good Service

    By on 7 March 2016
    I am half way though the PA Diploma Level 3. The course was delivered promptly and all instructions were useful. I have received feedback quickly from the tutor. There are some typos in the course material, but nothing major.

    I personally feel that the activities are a little pointless as they aren't marked. This is just my opinion and they may work for other people, however I just feel that I am learning enough from reading the course material and completing the marked assignments. Everything in the course is very relevant to me and its very useful to be able to do the course in your own time.

  • Feedback was quick

    By on 3 March 2016
    For a self-motivated person in a PA role the home learning works for me. The scenarios are a more practical way of me evidencing my knowledge and skills and give me room to be creative in how I present this information.

    The feedback on each module was quick and I appreciated this immensely. If I could find an appropriate higher level course in this area I would certainly consider carrying on further study.

  • PA Diploma Level 3

    By on 22 December 2015
    I really enjoyed the course even if it took me much longer than expected due to the demands of my full time job.

    The materials were easy to read and the prompt questions throughout the course was helpful.

    I would like to look at another course but will probably leave it a few months, this course will be more of an interest rather than relate to my job.

    The team at NCC were amazing and very understanding with the length of time it took me to complete - but I got there in the end!

  • A Massive Thank You!

    By on 5 November 2015
    I would like to say a massive thank you to Maria Robert (tutor) and Sally Swift (who I had to
    correspond with via email due to technical problems with my IT department which did not allow me to
    correspond with Maria direct) for all the support and feedback I have received, responses were very
    quick and feedback was very clear and helpful for me to complete modules.

    It has been an enjoyable course to undertake and will help me greatly in the future with my career. I
    would recommend this course/website to family and friends.
