Business Administration (5528)

Last Updated: 20 Aug 2015
The Level 2 and 3 Diplomas are hybrid qualifications, made up of competence and knowledge units, whilst the Level 4 NVQ Diploma is competence based. These qualifications can be delivered on their own or as part of the appropriate apprenticeship in Business Administration. From learning to carry out basic administrative tasks to gaining higher level support skills, qualifications in Business Administration can be tailored to meet your or your employer's specific needs. They were developed in collaboration with Skills CFA (The Council for Administration) from the recently updated NOS (National Occupational Standards).

As part of this new suite of qualifications are the new 5528 Level 2 and 3 Diplomas in Legal and Medical Administration. These use the new 5519 C&G/AMSPAR Medical Administration and 7655 C&G/CILEx Legal Secretaries units alongside the new Business Administration units to create a hybrid qualification that sits in line with the new format of the apprenticeship framework for Business and Administration. These qualifications will also form part of the new apprenticeship package below.

The 5528-02 Level 2 and 5528-03 Level 3 Diplomas are required knowledge and competence components of the Intermediate and Advanced Apprenticeships respectively. The 5528-04 Level 4 NVQ Diploma, alongside the 4710-04 Level 4 Diploma in Business and Professional Administration, are required components of the Higher Level Apprenticeship. There is a package available for all nations for the Business and Administration and Legal and Medical Administration qualifications which is 9645.
