Educational Operations & Administration

Educational Operations & Administration

Educational operations and administration includes any role that helps to keep a school, college or university running smoothly. It’s a very broad area, with lots of potential job titles, such as:

  • Attendance Officer
  • Administration Officer
  • Receptionist
  • Student Support Officer
  • Finance Assistant / Officer
  • HR Assistant
  • Personal Assistant
  • Facilities
  • Catering & Supervision

Although they’re operational, with most roles you’ll feel very much a part of the education system. As an Attendance Officer, for example, you’ll be reviewing and managing student absence, identifying trends, arranging parental meetings and developing new initiatives to improve attendance. Even in a less education-specific career, such as Finance Assistant, you’ll find different tasks and challenges in education than you would elsewhere.

While the specific skills you need vary, for all educational administration jobs you need to be highly organised and work well in a team.
