  • Overview

    As an Apprentice training with Runshaw College, you will be expected to demonstrate motivation, enthusiasm and dedication throughout your apprenticeship, both in the work place and at the College. To help you do this, Runshaw will provide you with a high level of continual support to ensure you become fully competent in your field and are employer-ready when you complete this coveted apprenticeship programme. You will also have the same access to all College facilities as our full and part time students, which includes the College library. As an apprentice, you will be encouraged to develop the ability to work both individually or as part of a team and achieve the required qualifications in maths and English should you need to improve your current grade.

    This particular course will see you work towards a Business & Professional Administration apprenticeship standard consisting of:

    • Skills, knowledge & behaviours

    • NVQ Level 4 Diploma in Business and Administration

    • BTEC Level 4 Diploma in Business

  • Entry Requirements

    5 x GCSE A*-C  /Grade 9-4 which must include GCSE English and maths at Grade A*-C/Grade 9-4 or equivalent, or have successfully completed the Business Administration apprenticeship at Level 3.

  • How will I be assessed?

    Continual assessment and review through formative and summative assessments during your apprenticeship. These assessment methods may include completion of assignments, workbooks, reflective accounts, discussions, knowledge tests and observations.

    Once deemed competent in all areas of the standard the apprentice will then go through independent end point assessment carried out by an external assessor.

  • Progression Pathway

    This apprenticeship could see you progress to study a part-time HNC/FD in Business or other professional qualifications including HR, Marketing, Management & Accounting. You may also wish to study the full Degree in Business or an Apprenticeship Degree in Business and Management.

  • Attendance & Support

    Runshaw College believes that attendance and punctuality are key factors in the timely success of an Apprenticeship. Apprentices are accepted on the basis that they will have a high level of attendance at College and in the workplace. Persistent or regular absenteeism is a disciplinary offence and may lead to dismissal from the programme.

    Runshaw Apprentices will be offered support and be encouraged to develop the ability to work on their own and as team players. We expect our Apprentices to show enthusiasm and the motivation to reach and exceed their goals.

    It is important to maintain time keeping and attendance for both college and work place sessions to ensure learners remain on target.
