Fatima, 23 years old, wanted to be a successful woman entrepreneur after getting some experience in the market. She was doing job as an administrator in an academy to fund her studies and fulfill her living expenses. During her job, she always observed the activities of the head of the institution “how he makes decisions and monitors activities of the staff”. She knew that she would be someday a successful entrepreneur in the field of education.

Several months before her graduation, Fatima’s father and several friends asked her when she would be starting her job hunt. She explained that she was too busy finishing her studies and working at the academy. “After graduation in June, I’ll take a couple of months to unwind and then begin searching for a job. Besides, most business colleges don’t get serious about hiring recent graduates until after summer vacations when new session will be starting in the colleges.” Her father thought she was being a little laid back in her job-hunting approach.

After graduation, Fatima continued to work at the academy as she was doing earlier. One day, she went to meet her mentor, Professor Ahmed Raza, at his office. Professor Ahmed Raza asked Fatima how her job search was going. Fatima Replied, “I will be getting to work on my resume soon. The job market is fully saturated for the fresh candidates; I did not see any need to rush. Would it be okay to drop by your office to get some advice on my resume?”

Fatima met with Professor Ahmed Raza a week later. He gave Fatima a few suggestions about her
resumes construction and also noted that her portfolio needed more work before she could present the portfolio to perspective employers. Fatima then decided to sharpen her portfolio before beginning her job search.

Fatima bought some newspapers to search the classified sections. She found a total of three relevant opening for administrators in business colleges and sent her resume and cover letter to the addresses indicated in the ads.

Two months passed and Fatima had not heard back from any of the business colleges to which she sent letters. Fatima’ next approach was to give a copy of her resume to his friend who was working as a lecturer in a business college in Lahore. The friend said that he would give the resume to the head of the institution personally.

(2) What recommendations can you make to Fatima to help her find a position as an
educational institution administrator?

General administrators are often asked for a 'good' honours degree, according . Depending on the role, the following subjects may increase your chances:

  • business studies;
  • education;
  • English;
  • information science/management;
  • psychology;
  • social/public administration;
  • sociology;
  • statistics.

Specialist administration roles, such as human resources, may require a degree and the relevant professional qualification.

A degree is increasingly desirable in both higher and further education (HE and FE) and is often essential for entry to HE administration and for promotion to more senior roles. Degree subject and classification are usually not as significant, particularly when some previous experience in administration has been gained.

Entry is possible with an HND, especially in FE, tertiary education and schools, and at lower grades in university administration. Relevant subject areas such as business administration and administration-related qualifications would be an advantage. Skills-based qualifications such as the European Computer Driving Licence (ECDL) may also be required.

A pre-entry postgraduate qualification is not needed, although a professional qualification or higher degree, particularly one that is directly related (such as an MBA in Higher Education Management), may help in progressing to the higher grades.

For some roles, pre-entry formal office experience may be essential. For senior grades, a minimum of three years' experience in an administrative capacity is usually required. At all levels, previous experience in public sector administration may increase your chances.

Potential candidates will need to show evidence of the following:

  • ability to deal positively with change;
  • strong interpersonal skills, to relate effectively with others at different levels including students, academics and colleagues in other areas of education administration;
  • good written communication skills;
  • being a good team member;
  • ability to prioritise and manage time effectively;
  • IT skills including word processing, spreadsheets, databases and use of the internet;
  • a demonstrable interest in the education sector.

This is a competitive sector. Evidence of relevant experience is important, such as involvement in university life, committee work, student recruitment activities or participation in skills development schemes and mentoring. These activities also demonstrate an interest in, and familiarity with, this sector.
