Apprenticeships in BusinessPosted: 11th of February 2015 by
Thinking that you’d like to work in business?
Whether you would like to work as an operative, a supervisor or business manager, there are apprenticeships that you can do which can get you there.
Within the Business, Administration and Law sector, there are apprenticeship frameworks, such as Business and Administration, Business Innovation and Growth and Management as well as other frameworks like Accounting, Bookkeeping and Human Resource Management. You can search for live opportunities in business and admin on our vacancies page.
The Business and Administration apprenticeship framework is available at levels 2 – 4 (Intermediate to Higher) and the Business Innovation and Growth framework is available at level 5 (Higher). The variety of levels available means that you could do a business apprenticeship at a level that requires GCSEs, with the potential then to progress to a higher apprenticeship, or you could do a higher apprenticeship after completing your A-levels.
The Business and Administration Apprenticeship
At intermediate level (2) you would gain a knowledge-based level 2 certificate in Principles of Business Administration alongside a competence-based level 2 NVQ certificate in Business and Administration.
At Advanced level (3) you would gain a level 3 Diploma in Principles of Business Administration together with a Level 3 NVQ Diploma in Business and Administration.
On the higher level apprenticeship you would gain a level 4 Diploma in Business and Professional Administration and a level 4 NVQ Diploma in Business and Administration.
The Business Innovation and Growth apprenticeship, which includes roles like Innovation scout, Business development executive or project executive includes study for the level 5 BTEC Diploma in Innovation and Growth.
Many of the apprenticeship jobs available offer opportunities to progress within the company, for example by moving on to a management training programme, which is ideal in business when you prove that you have the skills to advance.
You can find out all about apprenticeships in the Business, Administration and Law sector in our Apprenticeship Guide, which is out soon and will be available here.
