Abstract:

Conventional secretarial courses, including graduate and A-level entry programmes, typically apply skills-based approaches to curriculum design. They have freestanding components for various secretarial competencies — typing, shorthand, office practice, word-processing, business communication, etc — with additional subjects (business law, marketing or economics, for example) incorporated according to the availability of staff and other resources within the institution. Subject teachers seek to inculcate in students sets of abilities, perceptions and approaches strictly related to the subjects they teach. Programmes develop around particular skills, and there are few inter-relations between courses.
