It takes specific skills and an understanding of the dynamics of people to successfully run an office in an efficient and comprehensive manner.

You will also be shown how to deal with staff promotions and understand how to get to grips with their performance. Legal issues will also be discussed, including equality and diversity policies, alongside writing reports and the importance of health and safety.

I am really enjoying the course and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to anyone
This course is really comprehensive – it covers so many topics and themes. I really thought that the way the course is set out is very easy to use.
You have the option to print out the course work or work online and the end of module worksheets are great for ensuring that you understand everything by filling in the blanks, answering questions about the topic and so on, you can even revisit modules.
I have only needed to contact support once but the reply was quick and concise.
I am really enjoying the course and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to anyone thinking of or already working in the Office Management field.

No stress over time limits.
Absolutely loved this course!! I am very happy with my experience in completing this online course with New Skills Academy.
It was an easy process and their website is very easy to get around. No stress over time limits. I worked through the course at my own pace, and from the comforts of my own home.
Very informative and loved the worksheet after each module which gave me a chance to really think about the work needed for the final test and gave me a chance to really understand each module.
I will definitely be putting what I have learned from the course into practice within our office.
