In to-day’s hectic school environments, the ‘Secretary’ works the front line more than any other school employee.   The list of duties and tasks has expanded in line with the mounting workload in our schools – administrative, curricular, social, interpersonal – and the secretary, as Personal Assistant to the Principal, has become an invaluable asset in staying on top of mounting paperwork and duties.

This course seeks to clarify the role and explore time-saving strategies:

  • The post of Secretary – contract, pay & conditions, the future?
  • The role of the Secretary in modern day education establishments
  • The Schedule of Tasks, Duties and Responsibilities
  • Key skills and competencies required for success – from people management, interpersonal communication, decision-making to organisational, administrative etc.
  • Time saving ideas which are applicable to primary and post primary schools of all sizes.
  • Tips for staying on top of the workload, achieving work-life balance and remaining healthy at the same time.
