Level 2 - Business Administration Apprenticeship



Sophie has completed a Level 2 Business Administration apprenticeship programme with Swindon College.


Before coming to Swindon College, Sophie had started a full time course but decided it wasn’t for her, as she prefers hands on learning and didn’t enjoy the classroom environment. She chose the apprenticeship route to get the hands-on learning experience she wanted, and to get some HR experience at a good company, to be able to progress.


Sophie says,

The apprenticeship at the Art and Humanities Research Council has helped me with learning how to act in the workplace, having experience of a working environment, and seeing how what I have learnt is put into practice. It has also given me experience of administration work in learning and development, projects at work, arranging meetings and arranging training.


In the future, Sophie hopes to progress her career in HR and to gain more work based experience.
