Business and Administration Apprenticeship
This Apprenticeship is all about playing an important support role within a business or organisation. Administrators handle the day-to-day tasks in an office and make sure things run smoothly. 97% of employers say that good administration is essential for their businesses, so they do a crucial job.
The term ‘administration’ covers roles that involve organising people and things.
Business Administration careers can be:
PAs (Personal Assistants), executive assistants, secretaries, administration assistants, data entry clerks and office juniors.
Without them, information would be hard to find, meetings would be missed and businesses would be less productive.
As a business and administration apprentice, your exact duties will depend on your employer. It’s likely that you’ll be working with a team or member of staff to handle various tasks. You may be typing up board meeting documents, putting financial information together in spreadsheets, sending the daily post, or faxing and photocopying confidential documents. This sort of work requires a strong sense of responsibility, accuracy and attention to detail.
The apprenticeship framework is made up of:
• Functional Skills in English at Level 2 and Maths at Level 1
• The Technical Certificate in Business Administration principles and practice
• The NVQ diploma in Business and Administration
• A unit on Employee Rights and Responsibilities
