Store and Retrieve Information - Level 2


Price is per online user of this course. Applicable EU VAT is added.

Storing and retrieving of information occurs in all organisations at all levels and it is important that policies and procedures are followed so that information is stored in a way that is easily retrievable. A combination of manual and electronic methods of storage is used in most organisations and it is important that the difference between the two is recognised.

The aim of this unit is for you to learn about different types of filing systems as well as relating organisational, legal and ethical issues to these systems.  You will learn how to deal with information storage problems, identify legislation concerning storage of information and consider how long information needs to be kept due to legal or other reasons.

This  Level 2 course, from the Business Administration Level 2 suite of online courses, is mapped to UK National Occupational Standards BUS16, R/506/1811.

Five stage learning process


i-Practice is a unique tool that simulates real world vocational activities in a virtual environment, bridging the gap between traditional textbook and workshop learning, enabling the development of practical skills.  It consists of two elements:

i-Practice (Training):  This guides you through a virtual activity with full instruction allowing you to acquire the necessary skills though the repetition of tasks.

i-Practice (Assessment):  This allows you to test your comprehension of the content.  You undertake the same activity as before but without instruction.  This enables you to apply what you have learnt, test your ability and set a benchmark to improve upon – ultimately working towards being job ready.


i-Ask provides core knowledge delivered through visuals, text and audio


iCheck reinforces your comprehension with informal testing and clear results – helping you identify strong and weak areas of understanding

i-Test This is formal testing which summarises your results
