Hi Catherine, She supports many if not all of the admin functions. When we do ECHP’s reviews she types them there and then, she updates the register and send paperwork off to the organisations. I’m not saying I dont do these jobs myself also, but she enables me time to observe, teach, run interventions and do what I should be doing strategically. She also runs the department and is the rock there so when I off teaching, TA’s ec go to her first and me second and again it means that the system works. I only get called if there is an emergency. Otherwise it has to wait until my return, if she can’t deal with it. Ive not had support like these previously and I won the argument as me at teaching no hours is more expensive than having an admin assistant and therefore it makes sense. Hope that helps!
