To achieve the transferable knowledge, skills and behaviours required for a business administrator, you will work towards completion of the City & Guilds Level 3 Diploma for the Business Administrator qualification.

This qualification has been developed to support learners completing the Business Administrator Apprenticeship Standard and covers the required knowledge, skills and behaviours.

The qualification covers a range of topics through 7 mandatory units and 1 optional unit:

Mandatory units:

  • Principles of business administration*
  • Personal and professional development
  • Managing performance
  • Your organisation
  • Communication in a business environment
  • Project management
  • ICT for business

Optional units:

  • Providing services in an administrative environment*
  • Legal administration
  • Medical administration
  • Social media for business
  • Marketing and sales
  • Human resources environment
  • Providing administration in the educational environment

*These units are achieved through completion of online multiple-choice tests under exam conditions.

Functional Skills in English and maths:

These are key elements of your apprenticeship and are essential to the role of a business administrator. If you do not already have a GCSE at grade A*-C (or new grade 9-4) in these subjects you will be required to study Functional Skills at the appropriate levels. Maths and English skills will support your apprenticeship programme, assisting you with assignment writing, research, job applications, presentations, and data analysis, to mention just a few.

Most employers look for ability in these areas and the majority of university courses require you to have maths and English GCSEs at A*-C (or new grade 9-4). This is why the development of maths and English is so important, whatever your field of study.

Completion of the qualification and functional skills will lead to End Point Assessment. This consists of a multiple-choice test, portfolio interview and a project presentation, which will be carried out by an Independent End Point Assessor from City and Guilds.
