About the course

In our business course, build on your previous knowledge of business management, learning essential business skills such as developing text documents and spreadsheets, maintaining financial records and creating eye-catching presentations.

You’ll also learn how to organise meetings, coordinate business resources and deliver outstanding customer service, as well as various other business-related functions.

Our business course is a great option if you're looking at working in administrative or supervisory roles, but if you're uncertain which area of study you want to follow, our course still keeps your options open, while giving you the opportunity to consider several business areas of study. It's also a good place to start if you're wanting qualifications to return to the workforce or change careers.
