With Business and Administration skills being vital to the effective day-to-day running of a business, it’s understandable to see why qualifications in this area are widely sought after. In order to thrive in administrative roles, it’s essential to be prepared for the changing demands of the industry and have a set of skills that cover a wide range of duties.

In conjunction with The Institute of Administrative Management (IAM), we have created an array of Business and Administration qualifications to provide you with the vital skills to support you as you progress on this career path.

The IAM is the UK’s oldest professional body for administration and business management and has been developing professional standards since 1915. Thus, it has a wealth of experience that we have condensed into courses, enabling us to create a comprehensive suite of Certificates, Diplomas and NVQs that range from Levels 2 – 6.

These courses span from introductions to the sector, to in-depth diplomas appropriate for senior level management. What’s more, the content in many of these qualifications is designed to be generic, which ensures they are applicable to any business area that you might work in. Also, there is a choice of optional units in most of the qualifications, enabling you to choose the areas you wish to learn and specialise in.

All students undertaking IQ IAM qualifications are also entitled to a year’s student membership with the Institute, which carries the following benefits:

  • The opportunity to attend a host of CPD and networking events throughout the year
  • Access to study guides, learning materials and relevant sector journals
  • Online forums and members area where you can network and seek industry advice
  • Quarterly copies of the ‘Manager’ magazine, which provides the latest sector news, guides and features offering helpful advice to those in the profession
