Northampton businesses offer course to PAs
Barclays have partnered up with PA & Secretarial training provider, Pitman Training, to create free, CPD accredited workshops in Northampton.
An event will be held in Northampton at Barclaycard in Pavilion Drive on Tuesday October 6, from 1pm to 4pm with 25 places available.
The aim of the event is to emphasise what a career as a PA is really like in businesses today, challenge outdated perceptions which surround the profession and educate the next wave of aspiring PAs.
Michelle Robertson, a PA at Barclays, and initiative leader said: “I believe that opportunity we have to help raise the profile of the PA profession should not be wasted – it is a real skill to do this work well and that should be recognised and acknowledged more widely.
“Not only will it benefit PAs already working in Barclays to develop and evolve as mentors, I hope it will inspire students to join a fast paced, rewarding profession or to find out that there is more to this career choice than they might think.”
Claire Lister, Managing Director at Pitman Training Group said: “We are delighted to be able to offer this opportunity alongside Barclays as our very practical, hands on approach means attendees can find out very quickly if a career as a PA is for them.
