Virtual Assistant (Level 3)



With the rapid increase in new technology, it’s no surprise that even personal assistants have gone virtual. Our physical presence is in less demand and remote employment is on the rise. For anyone interested in the field of virtual assistance, the opportunities are vast.

While it might sound completely newfangled, a virtual assistant will perform, in the majority, the same tasks as a personal assistant. The only thing they won’t be expected to do is make the coffee! Accredited through the Focus Awards Focus on Quality Provision (FQP) Scheme, this brand new and highly innovative course provides students with the skills they will require to successfully carry out the role.


This comprehensive course provides all the information that students will need in order to perform the role of a virtual Assistant. The program is divided into 24 units, which are outlined in the ‘Modules’ section above.

The first section of the course considers the more general aspects surrounding virtual assistance. It clearly defines the role by specifying what they might be expected to do on a daily basis and what skills they will need to possess in order to carry these tasks out. At this early stage, students will be made aware of exactly what it takes in order to pursue a career in the field.

As the course progresses, it hones in on individual elements which might affect the day to day running of a business, including dealing with staff and customer care. It also takes into account the practicalities involved in starting a business from scratch, such as the difficulties involved and how to succeed. In order to give students the best possible start in their future career as a virtual assistant, students will explore how to create their own business plan, manage their time, and plan effectively for the future.

As the business is operated on a virtual basis, it is essential that students have a working knowledge of the internet. The course provides important teachings on email, internet safety and virus protection. Additionally, one of the units demonstrates how students can create their own website.


While the course is perfect for candidates with previous experience in administration or clerical work, there is no previous experience or qualifications required in order to undertake this course.

Though the materials are straightforward and easy to follow, in order to fully understand the course content and fulfill coursework objectives, students will require a basic level of education. Should you experience any difficulties along the way, you can refer to the provided Study Guide or contact your personal tutor.
