Business Administration Apprenticeships

Our experience with Damar has been both productive and rewarding from the onset of our partnership and a close working relationship with both our Account Manager and trainers has been fruitful. Like everything in life, not everything runs smoothly but Damar has impressed us with their proactive handling of issues and quick resolution to problems.

Damar offers the level 3 Business Administrator Standard and the Level 2 Intermediate Apprenticeship in Business Administration

Business Administrator Apprenticeship Standard

Apprentices undertaking this apprenticeship gain a highly transferable set of knowledge, skills and behaviours that can be applied in all sectors. In addition to learning how to develop, implement, maintain and improve administrative services in their organisation, they will develop key skills and behaviours to support their own progression towards management responsibilities.

Apprentices must deliver their responsibilities efficiently and with integrity – showing a positive attitude. As part of the apprenticeship they will develop and demonstrate strong communication skills and adopt a proactive approach to developing skills. The apprentice is also expected to show initiative, managing priorities and own time, problem-solving skills, decision-making and the potential for people management responsibilities.

Intermediate Apprenticeship in Business Administration

This apprenticeship is designed for those starting out in an administrative career. The core qualification is the Pearson BTEC Level 2 Diploma in Business Administration which has a range of mandatory and optional units so that it can be tailored to suit individual job roles. The compulsory units cover underpinning skills and knowledge required by all administrators – things like business communication skills, how to develop and maintain good working relationships with colleagues and how organisations are structured. The optional units allow the apprenticeship to be tailored. Here, apprentices might learn about social media, how to give a presentation, creating business documents or handling mail. The qualification is designed to test not just whether the apprentice knows something but also whether they are applying their skills and knowledge correctly and consistently in the workplace.

  • Level 3 Business Administrator Apprenticeship Standard
  • More specialist apprenticeships in areas such as HR, marketing and accountancy.
