SFJ Awards - Level 3 Award in Professional PA & Administration Skills

Become an exceptional PA

The only Ofqual Regulated Professional Qualification specifically mentioning Personal Assistants in the title!

At Your Excellency Limited , we champion PAs / EAs & Administrative Professionals like no other training provider. What can you contribute to your organisation in 2021 and beyond? Boost your career, grow in confidence and become an exceptional PA wherever you are in the world

Who is this qualification for?

Become an exceptional PA with our Level 3 Award in Professional PA & Administration Skills.  This qualification, equivalent to A-Level study, reflects the diversity of the PA role.  You will learn the knowledge and skills you need to excel. Design your own qualification by selecting from a choice of topics ranging from Communication Skills to Project Management and Minute Taking to Finance.

This qualification has been specifically designed to develop the knowledge and skills required by PAs and professional administrators.

It’s perfect for ambitious people like yourself who want to take your career to the next level and who understand the importance of continually investing in yourself to develop both the life and workplace skills that will take you forward.

To achieve your Award you need to complete 5 training units from a selection of 12. After completing each training unit you need to submit a written assignment which is marked and internally verified. When you’ve achieved 5 pass marks and your work is moderated, you will achieve your Award. 

We recommend you do the Award over 12 months – although of course we will work with your schedule and have welcomed fast track students and those who want to spread the training over a longer period.

Each Unit can be attended as a standalone training course without registering for the full Award.

Is this qualification right for me?
