BTEC Diploma in Administration - Level 3 at Slough and Eton Church of England Business and Enterprise College

Course description

Working in administration offers a range of different types of roles across all industries and sectors, and every business needs administration in order to survive the competitive world. Usually the administrative role is situated in an office environment, either working as part of a larger team or for an individual. It always involves working with other people, as well as planning and organising work tasks after establishing requirements. The workplace environment needs to be organised in such a way as to meet organisational requirements for procedures as well as being conducive to safe and effective working.

This unit will enable learners to develop skills and knowledge of the types of systems and procedures in place within an organisation so that the work area is organised appropriately. Learners will understand the importance of supervising a regular review of systems and how to encourage users to comment on the effectiveness of administrative services.

Learners will see the importance of ensuring that systems and procedures are being correctly used and are meeting user requirements. They will also understand the importance of planning work to achieve the task and will develop skills and knowledge relating to planning tools and techniques.
