Things to consider

While the apprenticeship is shared between MIS and administration, this will not always be an even share of each week. At busier times for MIS at the start of the academic year you will spend most of your time in this area. At other times you will work solely with the administration team. This role would see you working closely with two teams. In the Registry, you will work on Management Information Systems which are there to support the work of student data input and checking. The Registry team has four members who will be keen to support you and develop your skills in inputting and reporting on college data. Working with the Administration team right across the college in a variety of roles, you will assist in the day to day organisation of the college, supporting Reception and also in Resources to help deliver teaching materials for use in lessons. Where you might occasionally have to work at a time outside of normal college hours, the college operates a 'time off in lieu' scheme. These extra hours worked can be accumulated and taken as time off at another time in the year.
