The City & Guilds Level 3 Diploma for Business Administrators qualification is suitable for anyone who is involved in an administration focused role in any industry. It aims to develop a highly transferable set of skills, knowledge and understanding across a range of administrative practices and tasks, which can be applied to all industries.
What will I learn?
The objective of the qualification is to support a business administrator’s role in the workplace, providing learners the opportunity to learn and evidence their knowledge and skills.
Online, you will study award-winning video lessons, which are available on demand, and can be viewed from your phone, tablet or computer – meaning you can choose how, when and where you want to study. Lessons last for around 45-60 minutes and are accompanied by animations and motion graphics to bring concepts to life. Practice questions, downloadable lesson materials and interactive case studies help to enhance the learning experience further and learners should expect to spend around 3-4 hours studying independently online each week.
On campus, you benefit from regular classes with a college tutor – without having to commit to attending multiple evenings each week. Your tutor will review what you have learnt during your online lessons and will be on hand to provide guidance on progress and assessment. Regular discussion with classmates will help to reinforce key points while also providing the additional support and motivation that comes from being part of a group.
