Business Administration Apprenticeship Level 2

This course is for you if you have an interest in working in a business environment, providing administration and organisation support to a variety of people. You will learn all about the basics of working in administration and apply this knowledge to your own workplace to show your understanding and competence in carrying out a range of tasks.


About the Course

This course is for you if you have an interest in working in a business environment, providing administration and organisation support to a variety of people.  You will learn all about the basics of working in administration and apply this knowledge to your own workplace to show your understanding and competence in carrying out a range of tasks.  


An apprenticeship with The Sheffield College provides college based days where you will learn about the different areas of work in administration, and on-the-job training with an employer for the remaining 4 days.  The college programme runs for 15 weeks during which time you will learn about the areas of work which need to be evidenced from your workplace.  Your workplace will provide you with the opportunity to practice and apply the learning as well as giving you training in the specific needs of your job. This learning and evidence of competence will be used to gain the NVQ Level 2 Diploma in Business Administration.


You will be expected to keep a log of hours spent completing on-the-job and off-the-job training.


Holidays are allocated by the workplace and need to meet their requirements, though students are asked to avoid taking holidays during college times if at all possible.


On your programme you will also study for Functional Skills in Maths, English and ICT as required by the framework.

Where does this Lead

This course opens up a wide range of opportunities, often leading to offers of full-time employment.  You may progress on to an Advanced Apprenticeship course (Level 3) – often with the same employer, or may decide that a different area of work interests you (e.g. specialising in customer service or accounts) and could access an apprenticeship in that area. 


Future Opportunities

Completion of the framework will show that you have completed a course of academic and vocational study and provide you with the qualifications you need to apply for job roles such as administrator, business support officer, receptionist, information controller, clerical officer, with a range of employers including health service, universities, local and national government offices.
