Teaching methods

Classes on the secretarial diploma program are divided into two main groups:

  • management and administration classes in the morning
  • language classes in the afternoon.

All our classes are divided into two ability levels (beginner and advanced).

By separating the subjects into two groups (management and languages), we can place you at the right level for your needs and bring you a more diverse range of contacts within the school. You will make progress at two different levels, with no barriers.

The management classes focus on management proper or on administration, depending on your choice (commerce diploma or secretarial diploma). During the first three months of the secretarial diploma programme, you will be assessed to identify your strengths and the areas you need to improve in quickly.

The formal grading system only commences after the first three months of the program, following the first end-of-term exam.

The interdisciplinary approach is designed to help you apply the knowledge you have learned in a practical situation, so that you meet the requirements of the secretarial diploma.
