The Souters Experience
Maria had been dissatisfied with her job and career prospects – and so she decided to take action. She looked to Souters for professional development opportunities and eventually settled on the Secretary PA Course, plus MS Office Training and the Administration Diploma.
The Souters Experience:
Souters training courses had everything that Maria was looking for – topics of interest that led to real employment opportunities, flexibility and teacher support.
Maria selected Souters courses based on her areas of interest and created a custom training package based on her goals to work in Office Administration. Through these courses, she learned a great deal about the duties and responsibilities involved in Office Administration, but above all, she learned how to manage her own responsibilities, her time and to plan ahead.
Besides meeting her set learning criteria, the courses were enjoyable and, most importantly, effective! The live tutor-based teaching was a stand-out feature as it encouraged class participation from all and make. Controlled class sizes also ensured that the student to teacher ratio was always low and everyone got the individual attention they needed.
Being able to study her Microsoft Office training from home allowed her to set her own learning pace and added the flexibility she needed, especially since the IT classroom at the learning centre was available for free study hours as well.
The Souters Benefit:
The benefits of the Souters training courses for Maria were clear in her job search. Immediately after completing the course, she had several job interviews for Office Administration roles, one of which was set up Souters. She eventually got a call for a second interview with that company, but by that time she had already accepted another offer. She is currently working as an Office Administrator and is enjoying it very much.
The Souters training courses have placed Maria’s career on a steady path. Now she is confident that with the skills gained, she can apply for a more senior job in a year or so. In the future, she plans on continuing her training in advanced Microsoft Office.
Advice for Future Students:
Maria recommends that those considering Souters training make use of all the available facilities, as they are many and helped her to learn the skills that eventually got her the job she wanted.
