this sector and have excellent communication skills. Acceptance onto the programme will be subject to qualifications, experience and successfully completing an initial assessment and interview.


Assessment will be carried out through a combination of observation of performance, evidence collected in the workplace, assignments and projects.

As a Business Administration Apprentice, you learn mostly while you work in an admin setting for example an office. Once employed one of our assessors visits you periodically to assess your skills in the workplace; this happens every three to four weeks (approximately). You also attend off-the-job training up to every other week to work on technical skills, which will help you while you work towards your qualifications.

Future opportunities

Candidates can progress onto level 4 Business and Administrative or a Foundation Degree in Business.
