Introduction to the Business Administration
The course is designed to be undertaken as an online Learnership, in that the theoretical component will be studied online. The practical component will be completed at the learner’s place of work, and therefore be relevant to the company in which he is employed. There will be at least 12 contact sessions, 1 per month, throughout the learnership. These contact sessions will be conducted onsite or via skype, which means that all learners can ‘attend’, no matter where they are based. At the end of the learnership, the learner will be competent in all aspects of business administration.
