Upon successful completion of the apprenticeship, the qualification obtained will be a L3 Business Administrator Apprenticeship Standard.

Throughout your time as an apprentice, you will be supported by both Calf Hey and the BPIF. You will be assigned a training coordinator to ensure that you have the best training available.

Training requirements will be discussed at the point of employment to suit your individual needs and business needs. Most training and studying will be a combination of site-based and remote delivery.

Once qualified we would be looking to train the candidate in other parts of the business like the digital department. They can learn the order processing, quoting and maybe some printing depending on the IT skills and knowledge of artwork packages
