The Level 2 Apprenticeship programme is ideal if you are a school leaver who intends to pursue a career in administration. The Level 3 Advanced Apprenticeship programme is ideal if you are already working as an office manager, administrative supervisor or in human resources, for example, and looking to enhance your career prospects.
You will need to have at least grades A - C in English and Maths. Entry is subject to a satisfactory interview and college assessment. For the Advanced Apprenticeship you should have experience of working in the business administration industry and hold a Level 2 NVQ in Business Administration.
You will attend our state-of-the-art training centre on a weekly basis. Training includes a variety of administrative and IT functions.

Level 2 Business Administration framework consists of Level 2 NVQ Certification in Business Administration, Level 2 Certificate in Business Administration (Technical Certificate), Key/Functional Skills and Communications. You will also be given an introduction to ERR (Employment Rights and Responsibilities), which covers the responsibilities of employees at work.
