Business Administration
L2 Replacement

A Customer Service pathway with administration content

We have designed a Customer Service pathway with administration content, to plug the gap left by removal of the Business Administration Level 2 Framework. Many employers used the BA 2 as an entry level apprenticeship, with the apprentice then progressing into Level 3 admin, or IT or Finance. Our Customer Service – Admin Pathway fills this niche for employers.

Significant new Employer Incentives Announced

We now have significant additional incentive payments available for employers of all sizes who engage in apprenticeships.

These payments are in addition to the existing £1000 incentive payment for taking a 16-18 year old apprentice (or a care-leaver or 16-24 year old with an Education and Health Care Plan, EHCP), so you can now receive £3000 for a 16-18 year old apprentice!
