SKU: GEN2/A/011

Course Aim:

This Business and Administration Level 2 Apprenticeship is ideal for candidates who are new to the business and office environment and are looking to gain a nationally recognised qualification.


Student Pre-Requisites:

The entry requirement for this apprenticeship will be decided by each employer, but will typically be a minimum of level 1 in English and maths.  Students will also be required to pass a Gen2 initial assessment at Level 1.

 

Course Duration:

Typically this apprenticeship will take 12 months.

 

Location:

Students are with their employer from day one and will study their taught components at an agreed Gen2 centre two days per month. This training will take place at a Gen2 centre based in West Cumbria, Carlisle or Furness. The students are visited by a Gen2 assessor in the workplace approximately every four to six weeks to assess their competence and monitor progress.  

 Programme Components:

The programme delivered through Gen2 will consist of:

  • Completion and achievement of a Level 2 Diploma in Business & Administration
  • Regular performance reviews undertaken by the employer and Gen2
  • Development of a portfolio of evidence including reports, assignments, and evidence of tasks undertaken.
  • Observations by a Gen2 assessor 
  • Ongoing professional discussions between the apprentice and the assessor relating to workplace competence and knowledge.
  • Feedback from line manager and peers including 180/360 degree feedback approaches. 
  • Apprentices will be required to have or achieve level 1 English and maths and to have at least attempted level 2 English and maths tests prior to completion of their apprenticeship.

 

Delivery Plan and Commitment:

The qualification requires 20% of time from the student’s normal working week to be committed to the qualification for the duration of the programme. This time must be away from normal work duties and will be achieved as follows:

  • Typically 1 day per unit is taught in a Gen2 centre. This is usually delivered two days per month. In addition students are given an assignment to be completed off the job within the workplace (equivalent of 12 days over 12 months).
  • 4-6 weekly assessment sessions (half day each) throughout the programme to consolidate training and support portfolio development (up to 13 days). These sessions are pre-arranged at mutual convenience with assessor, employer and stdent at the employers premises.
  • Ongoing work towards achieving the required standards of this apprenticeship including mentoring sessions, professional discussions, study time, employer organised training, site visits and maintaining a CPD log.
