Business Administration Apprenticeship Advanced Level 3 at Southampton City College

Course description

This apprenticeship is suitable for you if you want to start a career or develop your existing skills in working in Business and Administration. Business administration is an important support role within any business or organisation and, with more experience, is an excellent starting point to progress onto team leading and management roles.

Course content

Administrators handle the day-to-day tasks in an office and make sure things run smoothly. This sort of work requires a strong sense of responsibility, accuracy and attention to detail.

As a business and administration apprentice, your exact duties will depend on your employer but could include:

  • Typing up board meeting documents
  • Putting financial information together in spreadsheets
  • Sending the daily post
  • Faxing and photocopying confidential documents

Entry requirements

A full assessment will take place to ensure you have the skills to complete the qualification. As this is an advanced apprenticeship, all applicants will require GCSEs at grade A*-C in English and maths (or equivalent), or can demonstrate through the assessment process that they will be able to achieve this. By completing a workplace audit the Apprenticeship Coordinator will be able to establish whether you are covering the right level of tasks in the workplace to support the criteria necessary for the on-site evidence.

Assessment

An apprentice can expect to be doing work based learning with an employer and to be paid a wage. The apprenticeship will include a diploma, which includes the knowledge based element, functional skills and employment rights and responsibilities workbook.

Future opportunities
