Secretarial Studies

Have you been considering a career in administration?


Professional secretaries are the behind the scenes miracle workers of an organisation. There is an extremely high demand for competent administrative personnel as the job requires a person who is quick on their feet and able to perform under pressure.


What is Secretarial Studies?

Secretarial Studies covers all fields related to administrative and managerial functions, and the levels of qualifications range from junior to executive positions.


What will I learn by studying a course in Secretarial Studies?

This is a very broad question many of our students ask us. There is a wide range of courses available in the field. Each of these courses will focus on a key area of the administration role. For example, if you were to study a secretarial course in Human Resources, you would be developing skills such as recruiting and management. Each secretarial field and professional position is different and will require a different skill set. It is therefore very important that you find a course which best suits the field you want to work in one day.


Why should I study a Secretarial Course?

A secretary's job description has grown immensely over the past few years, mainly because new technology developments make is so much easier to perform more functions within a given timeframe. Secretarial Studies prepares students for the vast amount of administrative tasks that are expected from secretaries, which makes this qualification an extremely valuable asset, as the success and efficiency of every business, organisation or enterprise is dependent on a competent office administrator.
