On completion and achievement of the Business Administrator standard, Level 3, progression opportunities will be provided and discussed with learners to further enhance their career opportunities, such as senior support or management apprenticeship programmes.

Business administrators have a highly transferable set of knowledge, skills and behaviours that can be applied in all sectors. This includes small and large businesses alike, from the public, private and charitable sectors. The role may involve working independently or as part of a team and will involve developing, implementing, maintaining and improving administrative services. Business administrators develop key skills and behaviours to support their own progression towards management responsibilities.

The apprenticeship has a typical duration of 15 months with a maximum of 18 months and apprentices are certificated on successful completion of an independent end point assessment.

Apprentices are required to have evidence of Level 2 Functional Skills in English and maths prior to undertaking End Point Assessment.

Apprentices will develop the knowledge, skills and behaviours through on and off-the-job learning and will complete ONLINE learning for 6 hours a week and then meet with an Eastleigh College lecturer once a fortnight to check your learning on a day release basis.

Apprentices will develop their skills in areas to include:

  • Information Technology
  • Record & document production
  • Communication
  • Planning & organising
  • Decision making
  • Quality
  • Project Management

In addition to classroom learning, apprentices are welcome to join the college for any career events and guest speaker events.

End Point Assessment will include a portfolio of evidence, a completion of a project that you will complete for your employer and an interview. You will be guided by your tutor to help you prepare for all this.

What is the expected career progression after this apprenticeship?

Hopefully progressing on to a full-time role with the employer upon successful completion of the apprenticeship.
