Business Administration Intermediate Apprenticeship (Level 2)
The aim of this Apprenticeship framework is to provide employers in the public, private and not-for-profit sectors with a Business and Administration workforce who have the skills, knowledge and competencies to support business systems, processes and services and who can contribute to making businesses more efficient and productive. Administrators need a broad range of skills to work efficiently and to help increase business productivity. Skills shortages identified by organisations include a lack of office and administration skills, customer-handling skills, technical and practical skills, oral communication skills and IT skills, all of which are covered within the Business and Administration Apprenticeship framework.
