Please note: By applying for this apprenticeship, you are expressing an interest.

You will have a conditional place on the course once you have applied directly to an employer and been successful at interview.

We would encourage you to look at a full time backup as well. 


This course is for you if you have an interest and some experience in working in a business environment, providing administration and organisational support to a variety of people. You will consider the basics of working in administration and how these skills develop, and apply this knowledge to your own workplace to show your understanding and competence in carrying out a range of tasks.

An advanced apprenticeship with The Sheffield College provides on-the-job training with an employer, supported by a Training Assessment Facilitator who will plan regular tutorials and observations at work and help you plan work to be completed.  You will also have some college based sessions where you will learn about the different areas of work in administration to help you in completing statements for the mandatory units of the NVQ. Your workplace will provide you with the opportunity to practice and apply the learning as well as giving you training in the specific needs of your job. This learning and evidence of competence will be used to gain the NVQ Level 3 Diploma in Business Administration.

On your programme you will also study for Functional Skills in Maths, English and ICT as required by the framework.  

How will it be delivered?

  • Examinations for Functional Skills
  • Assessment of evidence for NVQ

Entry requirements

4 GCSEs grade 4 or above (or acceptable alternatives) including English Language and Maths.  

You will also need to gain a suitable employer. You can do this through searching for vacancies on our website and applying directly to the employer. This will be followed by a competitive interview process.   

Or by approaching employers yourself to ask if they will take on an apprentice. Once you find a suitable employer you should contact the college with their details. 

Your next steps...

Completion of the framework will show that you have completed a course of academic and vocational study and provide you with the qualifications you need to apply for job roles such as administrator, business support officer, receptionist, information controller, clerical officer, with a range of employers including health service, universities, local and national government offices.
