A School Administrator carries out the administration tasks within a school, such as running finance reports, ordering resources and maintaining records. This can be done independently or as part of a wider administration team. School administrators could be the first point of contact for parents and/or guardians, so may also need to answer queries.
To become a school administrator, a Level 2 qualification in administration is usually required unless you are applying for a school administration apprenticeship but even then relevant qualifications can help put you ahead of the competition. If you are set on being a school administrator then getting a qualification in school administration instead of a more general administration qualification might help your chances even more.
Administration courses often have entry requirements to enrol, the requirements are usually GCSE A*-C in English and Maths or an equivalent qualification. If you don’t meet these requirements we offer some great Functional Skills English and Functional Skills Maths courses that will fit the bill.
The average salary for a school administrator is around £19,997. The starting salary for a school administrator is around £17,759 but as an experienced school administrator you could earn up to around £25,493, though your wage could vary depending on the responsibilities of the role and the region you are in.
As a school administrator you could be working around 37-40 hours a week depending on your school and responsibilities.
We offer both Level 2 and Level 3 Courses & Qualifications. Some of these may be eligible for government funded learning meaning you could study for free subject to eligibility.
