What will I do on this course?

You’ll spend most of the week with your employer learning about business administration as you work, and come to College occasionally to learn the theoretical aspects of the role.
The course covers a number of units, which could include: managing your work and development, maintaining effective working relationships, researching and preparing information, and co-ordinating administrative services.
How will I be assessed?
We’ll assess your performance at work.
What could I do after this course?
Most Weston College apprentices are kept on by their employer at the end of their course. The course will also provide you with skills you’ll need for a variety of business roles such as office manager or personal assistant. You could also increase your skills by progressing to the Foundation Degree in Business and Management at Weston College or a higher apprenticeship.
You’ll need five GCSEs, including English, at grade 4/C or above, or a Level 2 business qualification. You’ll also need to be in relevant employment, but we can support you to find this.
