Why study Secretarial with Office Skills?
If you are unsure of a career path or whether to go on to university, it makes sense to gain skills that will help you find that first job: that’s where this course comes in. Many students combine the Legal Secretarial Course with Office Skills with an A-level or BTEC programme.
The skills you will gain on this course could help you find work during College holidays and full-time employment in a legal office on completion of the course. This course does not lead to a CILEx qualification. For that qualification, please see CILEx Diploma for Legal Secretaries.
