Business Administration - Advanced Apprenticeship at Hillingdon Training Ltd

Course description

This course offers the Advanced Apprenticeship in Business Administration. You will gather evidence for the Level 3, complete functional/key skills in Communication, Number and ICT and knowledge studies. Evidence will be gathered in the workplace. You will be trained both on and off the job. You will further develop the skills needed for working in an office environment, which could include developing working relationships with other people, supervising an office facility, producing documents, planning and running projects, organising and coordinating events and planning, organising and supporting meetings. This apprenticeship prepares you to play 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 effective administration is essential to their business, so they do a crucial job. The term 'administration' covers roles that involve organising people and resources, including 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. The Level 3 Advanced Apprenticeship is for those who work on their own initiative, planning and organising their own work and/or supervising others, for example, a project manager or supervisor. 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. One of the great things about business and administration is that you can work almost anywhere. With your transferable skills, you could be working in a record company or a charity. Administration roles are also an excellent starting point to move into management once you have more experience.
