Level 2 Diploma in Business Administration

Build your basic knowledge and skills in administration

This business administration course would be ideal for you if you're looking to start your career. The course is designed to equip you with a range of administration and clerical skills!

How do I achieve the qualification? 

The course is split up into different units which must total 45 credits for you to achieve the qualification. As part of this business course, there’s a lot of flexibility for you to choose units which really interest you.

So, you’ll complete 36 credits at Level 2 or above. 21 of these will be from mandatory units and you can make the other 24 credits up from a choice of 54 units, split across different groups.

During the course, you’ll cover skills such as managing personal performance, developing working relationships and providing administrative services.

This business administration qualification also covers personal learning and thinking skills, employment rights and responsibilities as well as functional skills in English, Maths and ICT.


Please be aware you will be required to do an initial assessment in order to qualify for government funding and achieve the minimum entry requirements for each course.

You will also be required to complete functional skills exams for English, Maths and ICT unless you have any exemptions or have previously achieved the required levels.

How long will my course take to complete?

As with anything worthwhile, this business administration course requires you to dedicate some of your time to it. This will be 12 months, but afterwards you’ll have the fantastic feeling of becoming a professionally recognised member of staff and set yourself up for a long and rewarding career in administration.

How will I be assessed?

You’ll be assessed through a mixture of ‘at home’ and ‘at work’ tasks. Before this happens, your assessor will talk with you to find out what learning style suits you best and tailor your assessments around it.

At home:

  • A range of written tasks to complete online
  • Assignments asking you to describe/explain something

At work:

  • Observations by an assessor
  • Professional discussions with your assessor
