Intro to the course:
The One and Two Year Foundation Apprenticeship (FA) in Business Skills is offered in S5 and S6. If you have a strong desire to develop a career in business, you can enhance your school studies with an industry, College and University recognised qualification. It is delivered over one and two years and you will spend time in college developing skills and knowledge across a range of topics and on placement getting hands-on experience with an employer.
Modern businesses require leaders, managers and administrators in their management team to provide strategic, tactical and operational services. Budding managers and administrators have a highly transferable set of knowledge, skills and behaviours that can be applied in all sectors. This includes small and large businesses alike: from the public sector, private sector and charitable sector. This apprenticeship programme is properly “grounded” in the highly respected profession of Business Administration, whilst giving you the opportunity to appreciate and understand other management and business priorities.
You will study areas that will help you appreciate business priorities such as digital marketing, procurement, enterprise, human resources and finance, alongside a valuable work placement with an employer.
