Course Reviews

Don't just take our word for it

  • “ I have not studied since I have left school so it was a bit scary for me to start studying this time in my life but I gave it a go, and I have never done an online course before and I did not know what to expect.

    But I was pleasantly surprised that it wasn't as hard as what I thought.

    And I had some great Advisers, helped me along the way. I would like to mention their names as they deserve recognition as well for all the support and help that was provided to me.

    Their names being Yvonne and Rachel. Great work ladies and thanks again for the laughs along the way, and providing excellent customer service. And nothing was an effort to explain and they were so patient and explained things very well, and the communication via emails was excellent as you would always got a reply.

    Keep up the great work ladies. ” Carol S

Administration Careers Offer Options and Flexibility

Administration roles attract 2 types of people: those who always knew they wanted an office role; and those who fell into an administration office job and then found it had lots of hidden benefits!

Hidden Benefit 1: Industry Variety

Every type of business, in every type of industry has admin and office work. While “paperwork” is now being replaced with online administration, there is administration work to be done none-the-less.

Want to work in the legal sector – but don’t (yet) have ambitions to do a law degree. Yes there are administration jobs in law firms!

 

Same for other businesses like medical, manufacturing, travel, banking, corporate and small business. In fact every sector has administration and office roles.

 

This year your administration job might be in Brisbane in a backpackers lodge. Next year it might be for a large corporate business in Sydney. And who knows, maybe you then have a London work visa in mind…

 

Hidden Benefit 2: After Variety or After the Same

There are many common elements in an administration role, but from job to job there can be a wide variety of tasks. Each position will advertise the main aspects of the role – giving you the opportunity to choose an administration job that suits your need for a change or your preference for something similar.

 

Hidden Benefit 3: Rewarding But Not Rocket Science

Most administration tasks have an element of repetition and standard procedures. This makes it relatively easy to learn new office tasks and do them well.

 

Even for those who are ambitious – that will leave you scope to volunteer to tale on extra responsibility in the office. Every business has managers…

 

Hidden Benefit 4: It’s a Good “temporary” Job

We mentioned earlier that many people take an office job just to get started with work. There is nothing wrong with that. In fact, administration skills set themselves up for giving you the scope to have an office job as your back up or safety net.

You might not have decided what you really want to do with your life (and why should you be limited to one goal). Or you might have a plan, but right now a well paying stable job is the priority.
