Course Aims

At Global Edulink, we have developed this course to assist you to update your skills and to improve your ICT, administrative and secretarial skills so that you:

  • Feel more confident in carrying out your job

  • Are highly employable (if you are looking for work)
  • Are aiming for a promotion

Crucially, this course will help you to update your standard of computer literacy, which is vital in today’s workplace. You will not need to enrol on separate ICT courses as this curriculum already covers the use of Microsoft Office, data entry and producing administrative documents on a computer.

Course Content

The course is delivered through 25 hours’ of tutorials, spread over two units:

  • Unit 1: Developing your receptionist and administration skills
  • Unit 2: Developing your administrative and ICT skills

Rather than simply provide you with a qualification to put on your CV, we will also help you to draft an effective CV and show you how to write a covering letter and personal statement that will give you the best chance of being selected for interview when applying for a new job or promotion. We also provide advice on how to prepare for job interviews.

Method of assessment

At the end of the course, learners will also take an online multiple choice question assessment test. This online multiple choice question test is marked automatically so you will receive an instant grade and know whether you have passed the course.


Successful candidates will be awarded a Certificate in Office Administration & Reception Training.
