Inspiring you to be:


Adam Fidler Academy is based on just one premise: high-quality education and training for Executive Assistants (EAs), Executive PAs, Business Managers and Business Support professionals.


Adam Fidler Academy, principal Adam Fidler, was founded in 2015 to provide high-quality education and training for Personal Assistants (PAs), Executive Assistants (EAs) and Business Support professionals.  It is one of a handful of private colleges in the world that specialise in offering formal qualifications and training programmes to EAs, PAs and Business Support Managers. Our courses are endorsed by the Institute of Administrative Management (IAM) and by the University of Salford, Salford Professional Development.  

Both part-time and full-time courses are offered which vary in duration from courses of two-days to full-time courses of up to three months, as well as qualification programmes where ‘day students’ attend several days over a fixed duration (usually 9 or 12 months).  Evening classes and short workshops are also being offered for 2020.    

Our classes are kept small for personalised learning; a maximum of 8 students to one tutor and two classes can be run at the same time.  Our Academy is based in Manchester, UK and regularly attracts international students. We also offer a number of our most popular programmes in central London, UK such as ‘The Strategic Executive Assistant’ and ‘Get Ahead as an Executive PA’.   

With an emphasis on teaching practical skills and strategies to continuously improve business performance and effectiveness, Adam Fidler Academy is the first-choice training institution for PAs, EAs and Business Managers.

You have no idea how inspiring your words are... this is a life change that I do not take lightly! I have followed your posts for a while and find them, well - brilliant! Thank you for being a major reason for my EA transition!

I cannot fault anything about the course; the location, the content, the workbook and the various reading materials that Adam suggested all added to what we as individuals were looking to take from the course. The overriding factor was Adam - his passion, enthusiasm and knowledge are second-to-none and I feel inspired and honoured to have experienced such a wealth of expertise on such a personal level.
