Administrators handle the day to day tasks in an office and make sure that things run smoothly – 97% of employers say that effective administration is essential to their business, so they do a crucial job.

Our Apprentices learn and develop the knowledge and skills required to become competent and valued employees, enabling them to progress in their career.

As an Apprentice you will be employed and you will earn a wage from day one.  Apprenticeship training will take place every week, with attendance at the Avant training centre at least every four weeks.

You will undertake the BTEC Level 3 Diploma in Business Administration.

This qualification contains both knowledge and competence units, assessed through a combination of internal and external assessment.

The Knowledge units in this qualification can be externally assessed through an onscreen test or internally assessed through a portfolio of evidence depending on context.

The competence units in this qualification are assessed through an internally and externally quality assured portfolio made up of evidence gathered during the course of the learner’s work.


You will undertake the following Mandatory Units:

  • Communicate in a Business Environment
  • Manage Personal Performance and Development
  • Principles of Business Communication and Information
  • Principles Administration
  • Principles of Business

Plus you will choose optional units

As part of the Apprenticeship, you will also be required to work towards English, Maths and ICT Functional Skills.  If you have already achieved GCSE Grade C and above or GCSE Level 4 and above, you will be exempt, otherwise you will work towards the level above that in which you have achieved.
