The course takes seven months to complete and successful completion leads to a dual award:
the Certificate in Educational Business and Administration from ELC and the Certificate in Administrative Management, awarded by the Institute of Administrative Management (IAM) - a level 3 accredited qualification.
The Eastern Leadership Centre is now an accredited IAM Centre. They are a registered charity and a not for profit organisation and this is reflected in the course cost of £395.
A briefing is planned to take place in Wickford on Thursday, 23rd May and attached is the the flyer which gives further details.
The ELC have mentioned the possibility of delivering the programme more locally and, if there is enough interest in Southend (for 12 or more participants).
Who is it for?
The Certificate in Educational Business and Administration is an accredited level 3 qualification.
It is an initial qualification in educational administration with particular appeal to administrative staff seeking to do any of the following:
- develop their professional competence in relation to their role
- extend their knowledge and skills and deepen their understanding of business administration
- develop a career in administration and/or business management
- develop themselves personally
This may also serve as useful preparation if you wish to go on to other higher level courses, such as the National College’s Certificate in School Business Management.
The programme has a flexible structure which makes it suitable for individuals from all phases - Primary, Secondary and Special - and may also be of interest to administrators working within a Local Authority.
