Level 3 Business Administrator

The Business Administrator Apprenticeship is designed to provide the Knowledge, Skills and Behaviours required to be an effective Administrator in both large and small businesses in the public, private and charitable sectors. It is ideal for those administrators with some responsibility for systems or people and who would like to progress their career to a more senior role. They will ideally support and work with different parts of the organisation, communicating with a variety of internal and external stakeholders and contribute towards the efficiency of the company.

Added Value

Adult Education is pleased to be able to offer the Business Administrator BTEC qualification at no extra cost to support the learner and employer with gaining the required skills. Adult Education will also work with both the employer and the learner to identify a personalised training programme.


This Apprenticeship is typically 18 months long, with an additional three months for End Point Assessment. 20% of the Apprentice's time should be spent in paid off the job learning, so as an employer you will need to ensure that time is allocated for learning.

Adult Education provides workshops that support the apprentice in gaining the knowledge required to achieve their programme. We also offer clinics where learners can attend for advice and support if they are struggling with their assignments or projects.

Part of the programmes requirements is a significant project looking at business improvements, so time and responsibility will need to be given to the learner to ensure that they can provide this evidence.

Every twelve weeks a formal review will take place between the learner, employer and assessor where progress/concerns to date and targets for the next twelve weeks are discussed and agreed. Dedicated trainer and assessors will support the delivery from providing training in our specially written workshops to monthly assessment visits to aid and support progression, generation of evidence, guidance and support.


Whilst the eligibility is agreed with the employer, we would recommend that apprentices are able to work towards GCSE grade 4-9 (A- C) in Maths and English.
