What’s in the Apprenticeship?
Most learning happens on the job, learning from experienced work colleagues. There’s some time away from work to learn and practice new skills.
It features elements on how business works and the basics of systems used.
Apprentices learn to produce documents and use computers to support other staff.
They’ll learn how to plan and organise work, processes and people.
What’s required from an Apprentice:
Rathbone emphasises employment skills so Apprentices understand they need to be smart, well presented, punctual and to behave in a professional manner to get ahead.
How long does an Apprenticeship last?
People must be able to perform the job to national standards so it depends on how fast someone learns.
If someone left school with no other experience in business administration, they could achieve their Apprenticeship in around 15 months or an Advanced Apprenticeship in between 18 – 24 months.
What qualifications can be achieved?
- A National Vocational Qualification (NVQ) in Business Administration at at Intermediate and Advanced Level proving they’re skilled
- A Technical Certificate that shows they have the knowledge they need.
- Practical work skills in communications, using numbers and ICT.
Apprentices will also be provided with the employment skills to work in the sector and will understand employer rights and responsibilities.
