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

Become an exceptional PA

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 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.

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.

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 is Qualification number 601/8731/1 on the Ofqual Register

 To achieve your Level 3 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.

“I would recommend this Programme to any aspiring PA/EAs and those wanting to progress in the role and build a true partnership with their executives. The number of modules available cover all areas of business, regardless of industry, including essential knowledge in Finance, HR, and Persuading and Influencing others.


The trainers are knowledgeable and the assessments are an excellent way of applying and cementing the learning delivered during the training days.


In my opinion this Programme provides rounded knowledge for the learners. It’s a good investment in a PA’s professional development and a good investment for the business, backed by a recognised qualification.”
