The apprenticeship will be offered in line with South Gloucester & Stroud College (SGS), where training to Business Administration Level 3 will be taught and on the job training will support this qualification. We work a 37-hour week Monday to Friday from our Offices situated in Future Space alongside the UWE. As an apprentice you will have 20% of your time allotted to study and research. Being part of a small team, it is essential that you are a good communicator with a professional attitude to your work and studies.

Assessmen t- during your apprenticeship both SGS College and MTJB will regularly assess your development and progress and you will have an experienced administrator assigned as Mentor within the business to help you with on-the-job learning. You will be assessed by portfolio of work, presentation and end point assessment by SGS College for the Business Administration Level 3 qualification.

SGS has elected to deliver the on-programme learning using the Level 3 Diploma for the Business Administrator. The standard is assessed by a range of methods to meet all the knowledge, skills and behaviours. Evidence will be collated within a portfolio of evidence. To achieve the full Level 3, all units of the Diploma must be passed, meeting the assessment criteria. College attendance for the delivery of the Diploma is mandatory for all apprentices

A Standard contains a list of the skills, knowledge and behaviours an apprentice will need to have learned by the end of their apprenticeship. A portfolio will be compiled throughout the apprenticeship to reflect this and will include evidence collated from the work place such as, but not limited to; emails, letters, reports, presentations, appraisal information, and witness testimonies. Off-The-Job Training is a statutory requirement for an apprenticeship. It is training which is received by the apprentice, during the apprentice’s normal working hours, for the purpose of achieving the knowledge, skills and behaviours of the apprenticeship.” Off-the-job training is about upskilling an individual to reach full occupational competency, not accrediting their existing skills.
