'EDPA' Magazine

Why does your school need EDPA?

  1. Because most school PAs are working for free for an extra day per week. Whilst contracted for 37½ or 40 hours per week, 80%+ of school PAs are actually working at least 7½ hours more per week (PicaAurum surveys 2014-2018). On a standard "term-time +3 weeks" contract this is the equivalent of working every Saturday or two months per year for FREE.

  2. Because school PAs / secretaries receive little or no Continuous Professional Development (CPD). Around 85% (PicaAurum surveys 2012-2018) aren't offered admin-specific Continuous Professional Development opportunities and aren't included in any in-house school or college CPD days.

  3. Because the roles and responsibilities of school leadership are constantly changing - you need the best possible support from your administrators to lead the organisation. How can they do this without good quality professional development resources?

  4. Because the magazine and resources are worth the expense. A year's subscription for 3 issues of EDPA costs £30 / €35 / $45, and provides 93 pages of CPD per year. This works out around £0.30 per page - and less than £1 per week over an academic year - whilst offering at least 4½ to 6 hours per year of CPD reading for your staff. In addition, the website's 'subscribers only' section contains further resources and information to assist them in their roles.

  5. Because your PA and admin staff deserve it - and they deserve your support and recognition for the importance of their role - which will also assist in increasing staff morale and retention figures.

What do Headteachers and the Leadership Team gain from EDPA?

  • If, by reading EDPA, this can save your PA / secretary just one hour per week by giving them appropriate examples of how to work SMARTER and not HARDER, then that will enable them to claw back a few days of the additional time that they are currently giving for free to your school each year.

  • And if this time-saving extends to your PA / admin being able to save YOU an hour of YOUR time per week, how much more value does that add to a year's subscription?
