Business Administrator Apprenticeship Level 3 Standard

Who is the apprenticeship for?

This apprenticeship is suitable for any of your employees working in largely administrative roles in any part of your organisation whether it is in the public, private or charitable sector. Apprenticeships allow you to combine work and study by mixing on-the-job practical training with classroom learning. You’ll be employed to do a real job while studying for a formal qualification, usually for one day a week either at a college or in a training centre.

By the end of your apprenticeship, you’ll hopefully have gained the skills and know how knowledge needed to either succeed in your chosen career or progress onto the next apprenticeship level. What you’ll learn depends on the role that you’re training for. However, apprentices in every role follow an approved study programme, which means you’ll gain a nationally-recognised qualification at the end of your apprenticeship programme. This apprenticeship is applicable for your employees that are ready for their next challenge as well as those that have recently taken on extra responsibilities.

What will they learn?

This apprenticeship will develop your employees’ potential to progress to more senior roles and provide them with the skills they need to improve their performance. The qualifications that you gain on an apprenticeship are important, however, much of what you learn on an apprenticeship involves work-related and transferable skills as well as hands-on experience. For example, working in a business environment or a laboratory as an apprentice means you’re actually doing the job rather than perhaps doing classroom based activities that are a simulation of the job or just learning the theory behind something.

Because you are actively working, you will learn about, and practice procedures and protocols, that surround the job. This includes standard operating procedures, health and safety and other very important features of the job, such as confidentiality responsibilities. As an apprentice who is employed you are also expected to act accordingly and you will develop skills in communication, time-keeping and organisation. You’ll learn how to work with other people in the work place, how to take responsibility, how to participate in the work place and also how to manage your finances, as you are being paid.


How will they learn?

All employed apprentices are assigned an assessor in the College and their role is to support you throughout your training. They will visit you at work to ensure your employer is developing your skills according to the framework set out. At College you will learn about theory and techniques required to achieve your qualification. Our Personal Tutors will deliver high-quality face-to-face learning and coaching and provide all the resources your employee will need to progress quickly. Our intuitive learner management system ‘Bud’ will really bring the subject to life through interactive learning tools, access to complementary online resources and relevant social communities, as well as provide real-time learner information so that you will always know what your employee is learning and how they are progressing.
