Level 3 Business - Business Administrator

The Skills Network's Level 3 Apprenticeship for Business Administrators grows and enhances knowledge on a wide range of skills, from understanding stakeholders and core business fundamentals, to improving current interpersonal skills and project management.

Through completing the Level 3 Diploma in Business Administration as part of the framework, Apprentices will be encouraged to not only review, but value their own skills, knowledge and behaviours.

Prior attainment is carefully considered from the start meaning time on programme is maximised. The Skills Network offers strong IAG to ensure that each Apprentice understands the context of their learning, the assessment methodology and that their future career progression is carefully mapped into their journey.


Individual employers may set any entry requirements which may include:

  • It is desirable that candidates would have achieved a level 2 in math, English and ICT (equivalent to GCSE Grade C or above) prior to commencing their apprenticeship training. For those apprentices who are yet to achieve a level 2 in English, math and ICT will have the opportunity to complete these qualifications during their apprenticeship. However, a level 2 must be achieved in these areas before they qualify for entry to their end-point assessment.
