Training provider

Level 2 Diploma in Business and Adminstration

The NCFE Level 2 Intermediate Apprenticeship programme develops and accredits knowledge and skills needed to work in a business administration role. This qualification provides learners with a range of business and administrative skills such as collating and reporting data, organising business travel and accommodation and archiving information. It consists of 6 mondatory units, 29 optional mandatory knowledge units, 13 other optional units and 11 optional knowledge units.

Mandatory Units:

  • Communication in a business enviroment 
  • Understand employer organisations
  • Principles of providing administrative services
  • Principles of business document production and information management
  • Manage personal performances and development
  • Develop working relationships with colleagues

The training is delivered via a blended learning approach including on-line assessments, practical observations and workshops.

The training is work-based with no day release to college. An Assessor is allocated to each learner and will visit you at the setting. In addition to the Assessor the Apprentice will have access to a mentor based at the nursery setting. Candidates will need to have access to a computer and internet connection as an on-line portfolio is used for training and assessment. 

During the initial stages of the Apprenticeship a skills scan will be completed for Maths, English and ICT to assess current working levels and areas which require improvement. 

Continued learning and assessment will result in the creation of a comprehensive portfolio consisting of observations, discussion reports and statements. The Assessor will work with, and guide the Apprentice through this learning journey. 

Along with the Assessor observations, the Apprentice will be required to regularly complete independent on-line work and submit it for marking. At any point during the Apprenticeship the Apprentice will be able to view their progress and see the percentage of work completed/outstanding. 

Throughout the training, each portfolio will be quality checked to ensure consistency of marking. This is necessary to keep the standards and quality of the training at the highest level. 

At the end of the qualification the Apprentice will be issued with a certificate. There will also be the opportunity to discuss possible progression routes.
