Following a review we have decided to withdraw the Business Administration qualifications. The final date for entries will be 31/12/2023. Please refer to the subject update below for last certification dates and further information.
During 2021/22 adaptations to assessments were available to support candidates and assessors while public health restrictions were in place. As those restrictions are no longer in place, those adaptations are no longer necessary. In 2022/23 (and beyond) evidence produced for assessments must be in line with the requirements and guidance set out in the centre handbook and units.
Following the withdrawal of the Text Processing units in 2017, learners taking Administration (Business Professional) will still be able to use any prior achievement of Text Processing units for certification.
This qualification offers an introduction to routine administrative practice. It provides accreditation for the key knowledge, skills and understanding that would be needed by a new employee in an administrative job role. The qualification is flexible, allowing learners to choose individual units that best fit their needs and level of achievement, whilst at the same time ensuring that essential areas of knowledge and skill from the administrative sector are covered.
