Business Administration Advanced Apprenticeship Level 3 at Bedford College
This qualification covers the essentials of business administration, allowing the learner to develop the skills and knowledge required in a business environment.
This qualification offers you the chance to gain on-the-job experience whilst also studying for a qualification.
The following areas will be covered in this qualification:
- Communicate in a business environment
- Manage personal and professional development
- Contribute to the improvement of business performance
- Principles of administration
- Principles of business
- Employee Rights and Responsibilities
You will attend college for one day a week, usually a Friday, in which time you will study for the knowledge units. During your working week you will be assessed for the competence units with the guidance of an assessor. You will have the opportunity to choose some optional units in discussion with your employer and assessor.
If you have not got a GCSE grade A*-C in English, maths and ICT, then you will also study Functional Skills at Level 2.
It is recommended that learners have 4 GCSEs at grade A*-C including English Language and maths. This Level 3 qualification is ideal if you have some knowledge of administration systems and you want to develop your skills to implement and monitor administrative procedures and systems, perhaps to move into a management role at some stage.
The units completed in College, including the Functional Skills, are all assessed by examination. Units completed in the work place are assessed through a variety of methods including evidence, written answers to questions, observation and witness statements.
On completion you will gain the skills and knowledge required to progress on to relevant administrative roles in employment or alternatively onto other qualifications such as the HNC/D in Business or a professional qualification such as CIPD, AAT or CMI.
When you are in College you will need to bring pens, notepaper and a folder. There is a course book available from City & Guilds, which you can purchase should you wish to.
