Business Administration, Apprenticeship
The Business Administration Apprenticeship is a great first step to achieving a career in the industry, as you work alongside professionals and gain first-hand experience and skills, while also earning a wage. You’ll face work problems and situations, and help your colleagues overcome these with beneficial solutions.
As a Weston College student you will become part of our exciting new Career Excellence Hub in Business. This means you will take part in a study programme with lots of career boosting benefits, all with the aim of giving you the opportunity to become career ready!
What does the 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 co-ordinating administrative services.
How will the course be assessed?
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.
What future study opportunities and careers are there?
The majority of 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.
