PA Development

In agreement with participants, training will be offered either virtually or in the classroom according to government Covid-19 guidelines.

This is a highly interactive programme.  It covers core areas which have been specifically identified in consultation with PAs and senior administrators.

By the end of the training you will be able to:

  • Improve your awareness of how you interact with others in the workplace
  • Improve your ability to communicate effectively
  • Understand how to be assertive to achieve positive results – building your self esteem
  • Resolve issues surrounding time management, identify ‘time stealers’ and manage your time more efficiently
  • Speak with confidence for short periods in public

If you are a personal assistant, executive assistant, office manager, secretary or work in an administrative support role and wish to develop the practical skills to enhance effectiveness and resolve issues then this course is for you.
