Short, medium or long-term courses to meet your needs:
Our courses vary in length and you set your own pace according to the time you have available for study. Most of our long courses start at a basic or beginners level and build your skills to an advanced level. Our medium length courses provide a good range of qualifications to certificate level. Finally, our range of short courses is suitable for those on a tight budget or for those who wish to gain just enough to fill any skill gap or to help them cope with a new job.
Our main aim is to ensure you gain the qualifications you have booked to achieve with the course you are studying. We provide tuition that is as close as possible to the classroom experience and communicate several times a day with some students if they are studying full time. We limit the number of students studying with us at any one time to ensure we can look after our current students and ensure our service is maintained to a good standard.
You determine the pace of your course as you study at the times that best suit your schedule. Some students manage just a few hours a week, whilst others are studying almost full time and we send and receive work several times a day.
You will receive your lessons via email. You will have a range of exercises to complete, guiding you through the new learning to help build your knowledge and understanding. You will also complete a range of assignments, which enable you to apply what you have learnt to develop your skills further. Feedback is provided by the tutors and further explanation provided or exercises if required. The tutors will "sign off" your work as you achieve each step in the course, before moving onto the next step. You can have more than one module to study at a time, providing more variety to your course and the option to complete the course more quickly.
If you have worked as a secretarial / PA / administrative role for at least two years, or have other relevant qualifications, then you may be able to complete a course on a Fast Track Scheme and be eligible for further discounts. Let us know what prior knowledge and experience you have, and we can then advise you on your options.
High Success Rate:
We have a 100% success pass rate for our IT and Administration Diplomas, and just over 98% success rate for those sitting the Text Processing set timed exams at local OCR test centres. Past students have received special recognition by the Pitman Qualifications and London Chamber of Commerce with special presentations at the Houses of Parliament by the then Education Minister.
We teach people individually, patiently and with a lot of understanding. The teaching team is led by Penny Lewis - who is very hands on and who likes to monitor personally the progress of every student whilst studying at Lewis College. Other tutors have been with the College for a number of years and together form a solid team teaching and guiding students through their course.
Career and Job Seeking Support:
As part of your course, extensive careers counselling and development of job seeking skills can be provided. Career ideas and suggestions can be talked through as well as helping to develop and design a professional CV.
Preparation of answers to interview questions typically asked at an interview - enabling students to prepare a script to ensure they present well at the interview stage. On-going support is also provided - to help students decide on job applications, accepting job offers etc. Careers and job seeking support can be built into any course, from early on so students can start applying for jobs even when only part way through a course.
"I studied for the PA Diploma through Lewis Secretarial College and have been thoroughly supported throughout this. The course content is excellent and I now feel like I have developed the skills and knowledge to take on a much more demanding administration/secretarial position. I would definitely recommend this college due to all the help and support I have received, and in the future would definitely use them again."
- Tracey Martin, Cumbria - PA Secretarial
"Penny Lewis Secretarial College have been outstanding. I have just received my first certificates towards my Administration, IT and Text Processing diplomas. The support is excellent and the endless patience of Penny Lewis has allowed me to study completely at home. The tuition is first class and the course material is divided into easy lessons, making them interesting and enjoyable. It’s amazing how quickly my skills have built up in such a short time. I would recommend Penny Lewis College to anyone wanting to gain secretarial qualifications."
