They will guide you through your study programme and placement, and ensure you’re fully prepared for your next steps after college.
WHAT DOES THIS COURSE INVOLVE
This Level 3 Business Administration Apprenticeship will enable you to learn practical skills on the job while earning a wage. You will spend most of the week with your employer learning about business administration as you work and come to college occasionally to learn the theoretical aspects of the role. The programme covers a number of units, which could include managing your work and development, maintaining effective working relationships, researching and preparing information, and coordinating administrative services.
The end-point assessment consists of three elements – knowledge test, portfolio interview and project presentation. All assessments need to be passed and each assessment method will directly assess the knowledge, skills, and behaviours of the apprenticeship standard.
Most Weston College apprentices are kept on by their employer at the end of their programme. The programme will also provide you with skills you will need for a variety of business roles such as office manager or personal assistant. You could also increase your skills by progressing to the BA (Hons) in Business Management and Sustainability at University Centre Weston or a higher apprenticeship.
You will need 2 GCSEs Maths and English, at grade 9-4, or a Level 2 business qualification. You will also need to be in relevant employment, but we can help you find this.
To be an apprentice, you will need to find a suitable employer. Click here for advice: How to Apply for an Apprenticeship | Weston College
