The Level 3 qualification is intended for individuals whose role involves carrying out administrative duties with a considerable amount of responsibility and autonomy. The individual will be contributing to the development and implementation of administrative services within the organisation, and have a substantial amount of administrative experience. An extensive amount of knowledge regarding the organisation individuals are working for, (including policies, procedures, legislation) and the ability to explain, describe and identify why, how, when, where and who for/with tasks are carried out, is essential to fulfil the criteria requirements at Level 3 and therefore it is imperative that candidates are working in an appropriate permanent job role to meet the standards needed for this qualification.
This is a competence based qualification aimed at those people employed and carrying out a wide range of complex tasks suited to the qualification and who already have experience of office-based skills and are preparing for a line management role.
What will I learn
To attain the full award a minimum of 58 credits must be achieved, and to do so candidates must complete five mandatory units and a range of optional units chosen from the Level 3 selections. This qualification is very flexible in its structure enabling the organisation and individual to choose the optional units which best suit their work situation and job role.
How will I learn
Learners can choose from a bank of optional units, related to the tasks they carry out in their job role, which show their ability to contribute to the running of an office.
