Educ8 announce new partnership with Claire Farren from Farrens Training

Educ8 are delighted to announce a new partnership with Claire Farren from Farrens Training, which will focus on a ‘first of its kind’ qualification offering for Personal and Executive Assistants (PA/EAs).  

We know that the Personal/Executive Assistant (PA/EA) role, within any business, is a key one. The PA/EA will be privy to a wealth of information, and expected to perform a wide range of tasks, from liaising with a business’ most important clients to making sure networking events are a huge success.  

Our, first of it’s kind, history-making, fully funded, tailored Business Administration Apprenticeships are being showcased at both Level 3, for those new to the role, and Level 4, for those more experienced PA/EAs.  

Historically PA/EA qualifications have focused on an outdated view of the role, based upon how many words someone can type per minute for example, and thus we’re thrilled to directly challenge and acknowledge the evolving role of the PA/EA and their strategic contribution to business success across Wales. Farren’s Training has over 15 years’ experience of working with businesses: supporting individuals to develop and drive businesses forward, and we’re thrilled to be working together to allow personal and executive assistants across Wales to gain a nationally recognised qualification for the first time!  

Claire Farren has said:

“These qualifications are truly a moment in time, this has been needed for years!  There simply isn’t a programme with this depth to challenge the PA and EA role, to show the talent within the role, to development people in the role.  Everyone who has chosen the PA and EA role deserves to be recognised for their multitude of experience, their skillset and their strategic thinking…this programme is what every PA and EA has been waiting for!”

Whether you’re a Managing Director that wants to support their closest ally’s career development, a HR professional who hopes to recognise the unique position of the PA or a personal or executive assistant who rightly believes that they deserve to have their skills officially recognised, and wants to invest in their future, get in touch with the team to find out more.
