The Global PA Training Academy will fulfil all your training needs. In order to assess what type of training our members require we undertook in 2009 the largest sample of Academic Research in the world into the Secretarial/PA Profession ‘Secretarial Work, Skills & Careers’.  The results of that ground breaking research showed us that much needed to be done to tap into and develop the skills and abilities of the profession which had been identified in the Academic Research as the ‘forgotten workers’.  

We now have 10 years experience in training and developing thousands of PA Professionals across the world and pride ourselves on the high calibre of the training programmes we have developed.  

PA Professionals from the UK, Europe, Middle East, Far East & Australia have benefited from our programmes.  Our standards are high and each programme is thoroughly researched before it is delivered to our delegates.  We only work with qualified and highly motivated trainers to give you the best classroom experience.

Our services include our public training programmes, ‘in house’ bespoke programmes for our clients and 1:1 training and mentoring sessions.  We can create, design and deliver bespoke programmes alongside our popular Masterclass series.

Our Global PA Advanced Certificate Programme is accredited by The CPD Standards Office & Birkbeck, University of London.  

Our aim is to bring recognition and respect to the invaluable role of PAs within the workplace.  Our training programmes will support you all the way.

Key Findings: Kingston University & Global PA Network Academic Research 2009

  • At a national level the development of a professional PA qualification recognised by employers, together with greater representation for PAs in the workplace, would enhance the status and career prospects of senior secretaries
  • The status of secretarial work and of PAs themselves needs to be raised within the workplace to better reflect the variety and complexity of secretarial work at a senior level.
  • Clear promotion routes are needed both within and outside secretarial work to enable PAs to develop their careers and to enable organisations to capitalise on the accumulated skills and experience of their PA workforce.

Gender Work & Organization: ‘Still in the Ghetto’

We were delighted that in 2012 the hard work of the 2009 Academic Research undertaken by Professor Katie Truss, Amanda Rosewarne, Cerstin Alfes and Rosemary Parr was published as an Academic Journal Article.
