Course Details

This apprenticeship is designed for people who already have experience of office-based skills and wish to develop, implement, maintain and improve administrative services. In doing so, the apprentice is expected to work independently and take responsibility for the outcomes of their work, with support of the employer and the Chichester College.

The apprenticeship is a firm grounding in organisational operations and functional processes, as well as the wider working environment.
