NVQ Level 3 Business Administation, Lurgan Campus
Hayley Adamson joined the NVQ Level 3 Business Administration course on the Lurgan Campus after having successfully completed three A Levels at her local school. Hayley did not wish to do a University degree but instead opted to do a secretarial/administrative course that would develop her knowledge and skills as well as enhance her job prospects for the future.
One of the course requirements is to work in an office/administrative setting two days a week and Hayley did this in Grafton Recruitment. She carried out a wide range of duties including manning the reception area, computer work, filing, producing business documents and working as a member of the recruitment team.
Hayley proved to be such a valuable team member that they offered her full-time employment in the Belfast Office as a Bid Administrator. Hayley now has responsibilities in a wide range of areas including: creating PowerPoint presentations for Managers, taking minutes at meetings and carrying out research as appropriate for the company.
Hayley said ‘I felt the course really helped me in finding employment as I was able to get experience in an office and at the same time complete my studies in the College’. Hayley also achieved Level 2 and 3 Word Processing qualifications that are now essential for most jobs.
