Debbie, PA/Office Manager
I enjoyed the whole course. I will definitely doing another course in the future.
I am now aware of the high standard that is required to be an efficient PA. Also effective way of managing your workload. Writing emails and letters for the company was challenging; I now feel quite confident with this task.

I took this course in May and it has paid dividends. I have now got a job through one of Souters partners and I am starting as a PA. I learnt a lot on the course and the training is comprehensive covering Microsoft, Keyboard skills and many other items. Firm recommend from me!!
