How to become a Professional Organiser

GCSEs and A-levels in English and maths would serve you extremely well.  You can also use business studies, law, sociology, design and technology, and psychology, if you choose.  They are non-essential but useful.

After school, there are various courses in organisational skills you can take, ranging from a six-month certificate to a two-year diploma.  You probably won’t need to go any higher than an NVQ Level 2.  Check out your local college or adult learning centre for courses.  You can also look into distance learning courses, where you can study from home.

Setting up for yourself, you will need a full driver’s licence as you will need to travel.  You may also need a police check. The Prince’s Trust can help you set up your own business with advice, a mentor, and even a loan.
