Every business, whether it’s a large high street retail chain or a local office, will have an administration department. Administrators handle the day-to-day tasks in an office environment and make sure things run smoothly.
As a business and administration apprentice, it’s likely you’ll be working with a team or member of staff to handle a variety of tasks. You will require a strong sense of responsibility, accuracy and attention to detail. You will need to show and develop skills in organising and planning, together with communication and IT skills.
A qualification in Business and Administration offers valuable transferable skills enabling you to work in any industry. It is an excellent starting point to move into management once you gain more experience. Roles include:
I left school in July 2012 and started my Level 2 Business Administration apprenticeship with JACE Training, based in the Jancett Childcare Head Office, in October 2012. This led to me being promoted to the role of Occupancy Officer for Jancett Childcare. My apprenticeship has helped me grow in confidence and feel able to take on this role. The apprenticeship allowed me to work and study at the same time without ever feeling overwhelmed.
I progressed to my Level 3 Business Admin apprenticeship and would recommend it to anyone looking at business as a career. The level 3 course is very practical. It was mainly all coursework, with only a few tests along the way. I didn’t feel like I had the pressure of having to take exams at the end of it all.
