If you want an office job, this free training package will make your CV stand out from the crowd. During the course you’ll receive four qualifications and become an undisputed admin-all rounder.

The reality is, the majority of the modern workforce now works in an office. That means that there are a lot of administration skills out there in the job market. So what can you do if you’re trying to catch the eye of an employer? What makes your CV any different to the 50 other applicants they’ve seen already?

At the moment, probably nothing. But don’t worry, we can help.

The courses we deliver in this training package provide our learners with the skills businesses are asking for. They want people who can handle data, create and share documents and talk to customers professionally. They also want people who have strong numeracy, literacy and IT skills. And thanks to this custom-made training package, you will receive this tutoring for free.

Want to get your admin on? We can get you office-ready in two weeks. Here’s what’s included in our package.


Business Admin

Develop your knowledge of business and administrative practices so you can be a real asset to any organisation. Learn about the industry, the various roles within a business and the different workplaces you could experience. The course explains how to manage information, produce documents, budget and arrange events.

Also, if you’re serious about administration as a career, this course is the ideal springboard for further study in the subject.


Customer Service

Want to know what to do when dealing with customers? This course will provide you with the skills needed to work in a range of roles in modern employment. Learn how to understand customers and employers, develop relationships and resolve challenging problems.

Even though some admin jobs don’t involve interaction with customers, it doesn’t mean that those skills would be overlooked. In fact, a Customer Service qualification will prove you have the qualities to go the extra mile in your work. And employers will love that.


IT (Entry Level 3 to Level 2)

Having good IT skills is often a requirement for most modern jobs. With the majority of jobs now being advertised online, if you lack digital skills it can be a daunting prospect applying for them online. So, being able to search for the job you want, attach a CV and fill out application forms is absolutely vital.  

This course reflects the key components you will need to develop your digital ability. By the end of the course, you’ll be equipped with the digital skills needed to search for jobs online confidently.


Social Media for Employment Opportunities

Being able to use social media to find employment opportunities is becoming more and more important. Put simply – having the ability to use different social media platforms can really help with a job search. Platforms such as Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin, are a great way to find job vacancies and connect with potential employers.

This course will help you gain the skills you need to be efficient using social media for employment.


Literacy and Numeracy skills*

Qualifications: From Entry Level 3 to Level 2

If you’ve not got the required English and maths qualifications on your CV, it can really affect your chances of finding work. So, as part of your training, you will have the opportunity to upskill in all three subjects.

The English courses will help you improve your reading, writing and speaking and listening. You’ll be able to work on data, numbers, measurements and formulas in maths. 

*These courses are not included in the training package’s two-week duration and may take longer to achieve.


Make your CV stand out from the crowd

After you’ve completed this two-week long training course you’ll have at least four new qualifications – more if you upskill in English and maths. With these fresh awards, your CV will be sure to catch the eye of a potential employer. Not only will it prove you understand what’s required of an administrator, they also say you can communicate with co-workers and customers. If this doesn’t give you the edge over another candidate – what else will?
