  • Level 3 Business Administrator apprenticeship standard

As part of the Level 3 Business Administrator apprenticeship standard, you will learn the knowledge, skills and behaviours which will support you for your end-point assessment. You will take part in a combination of activities, such as face-to-face classroom-based sessions, remote learning sessions, work shadowing and online learning, to support your learning and development and compile a portfolio of evidence.

The successful candidate will be required to attend the Avant Skills Academy Training Centre (Hull) every other week to undertake training sessions, throughout the length of the apprenticeship. If you have not achieved a GCSE grade 4 (C) in English and maths, you will be required to complete Functional Skills Level 2 in English and maths.

Off-the-job-training:

Apprenticeships are about upskilling and reaching occupational competency takes time. Many employers and apprentices have praised the positive effect off-the-job training has on their productivity and apprentices feel valued by the significant investment in their training.

All off-the-job training must be relevant to the Apprenticeship Standard being undertaken. Your off-the-job training will be agreed with your employer and Avant before you commence your programme.

End-Point Assessment (EPA):

At the end of the on-programme learning, you will be required to undertake an End-Point Assessment to demonstrate you have met the occupational standard. This includes:

  • Apprentice Showcase
  • Practical Observation
  • Professional discussion
  • Project Presentation
