What opportunities will this course give me?

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

What will I be learning?

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 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.

Why is this course for me?

Apprentices will develop the knowledge, skills and behaviours through on and off-the-job learning and will attend Eastleigh College on a day release basis.

Apprentices will develop their skills in areas to include;

• Information Technology
• Record & document production
• Communication
• Planning & organising

How will my learning be enhanced?

In addition to classroom learning, students take part in off-site visits to local successful businesses such as Paultons Park and Marwell Zoo to research how these organisations deliver top quality customer service. We also welcome guest speakers and arrange workshops in CV writing and interview skills.
