Business & Administration

Levels offered: Level 2 (intermediate) and Level 3 (advanced)

Our Business & Administration Apprenticeship is designed to cover the wide range of roles available within a business and office environment.

Administration includes roles that involve organising people and resources, including executive assistants, secretaries, administration assistants, data entry clerks and office juniors. Without good administration skills, information would be hard to find, meetings would be missed and businesses would be less productive.

As a business and administration apprentice, your exact duties will depend on your employer. It's likely that you'll be working with a team or member of staff to handle various tasks. You may be typing up board meeting documents, putting financial information together in spreadsheets, sending the daily post, or faxing and photocopying confidential documents. This sort of work requires a strong sense of responsibility, accuracy and attention to detail.

One of the great things about business and administration is that you can work almost anywhere. With your transferable skills, you could be working in a record company or a charity. Administration roles are also an excellent starting point to move into management once you have more experience.
