Advanced Apprenticeship in Business Administration (Level 3)

The advanced Apprenticeship in Business Administration will help Apprentices learn what it takes to be in both a leadership and an administrative role.

Business administration involves not only keeping a company operating effectively, but also organising business management and operations, including the efficient organisation of people and resources.

Business administrators have to understand the needs of both the people they are working with, and the business they are working for. This is critical if they want to carry out their jobs effectively, which often involves scheduling and taking part in meetings as well as acting on behalf of the company they are working for.
