Introduction to the course
Successful Business Administrators enjoy a skill set that contributes to an organisation’s efficiency and is transferable across all business sectors. As an advanced apprenticeship, this programme has been designed to allow learners to develop their skill set by helping them to form in-depth knowledge of the industry and business environment in which they work.
Learners will develop their knowledge of the business principles, laws, and regulations to enable them to meet stakeholder needs and expectations. This includes: communicating effectively with all stakeholders in a business environment; managing resources in line with an organisation’s core values and business principles; and understanding the logistics of managing events and projects.
This programme will enable the learner to assess the growing range of communication tools now available to a business and apply the appropriate workplace communication method to ensure effective and impactful communication.
The on-programme learning includes the apprentice working on a work-based project. The project will be chosen by the apprentice with the guidance of the employer and trainer encompassing process improvements. The project will incorporate scoping, planning, stakeholder communications, monitoring and reporting. Once the trainer and employer is confident that all the requirements of the standard have been met, along with English and Mathematics at Level 2 have been achieved, the learner will progress to the End-Point Assessment gateway.
End-Point assessment comprises of a 60 minute multiple choice online assessment, portfolio based interview and a project presentation.

Apprentice or Employer?
At school there was a big push for A level students to progress to university, but I felt that I was ready to step into the world of work. The apprenticeship programme was a fantastic opportunity to carry on studying whilst gaining valuable work experience.
The Babington approach offers the flexibility I need to be able to undertake further learning. My tutor is great. She’s on hand whenever I need her; setting me detailed action plans for guidance but lets me progress my apprenticeship at the pace my job allows.
This experience built my confidence in so many areas I was previously uncomfortable with. The expectations were made clear throughout the whole course and Babington’s advisors were very flexible if at any time targets could not be met. They were always helpful, welcoming and played a major role in keeping me on track and motivated.
