Teachers are not the only professionals who make up the workforce in schools, colleges and universities and no two institutions are run exactly the same way. Most academic institutions will have their own separate working structure, i.e. there is no set way in which a school is run; however, teams of administrators will, in most cases, carry out all many of the important universal tasks which keep an institution ticking, such as organising student and staff turnover, maintaining premises, monitoring budgets and dealing with media, to mention just a few.

As is the case for teachers, academic administrators usually enjoy a number of perks, including those covetable, longer-than-usual summer, winter and Easter holidays and a buzzing working environment.

Academic administrators also come in the form of inspectors – the people who keep an eye on the teaching and health and safety standards of learning institutions across the UK.
