Level 4 School Business Professional Apprenticeship
Serco Education has been the largest provider of the School Business Professional Apprenticeship since 2016. We have assisted individuals in a diverse range of educational roles to achieve their career ambitions through completing the School Business Professional Apprenticeship.
Our consistent track record of course completions has been achieved through our tailored approach to each learner's needs by assigning a coach who will support them throughout the duration of the course. We also host workshops which allow facilitators to collaborate with learners and share their extensive expertise.
Programme details and Funding
The School Business Professional Apprenticeship will take around 24 months to complete (including three months for the completion of an end-point assessment) and is open to school business professionals or those working in school-support roles.
The programme allows you to attend five one-day face to face sessions, up to seven coach meetings with work-based and online learning covering the topics below. Your line manager will be able to show their support of your development through attending these coach visits and being involved in activities undertake for your off-the-job learning.
A key requirement of your apprenticeship will be undertaking 20% off-the-job training which can include your face-to-face workshops as well as other learning opportunities. A minimum of English and Maths at Level 2 (equivalent to GCSE grade A*-C / 9-4) are required for the programme, but we can help you obtain these during your apprenticeship at no extra charge.
The cost of this course is £6000 which will be taken from your school's levy account. This value may change as prior learning will be taken into consideration before a final figure is provided to you.
Please Note: It is important that you check with your line/funding manager to confirm that there are sufficient funds within your DAS account before applying. For those that are Non-levy payers looking to apply, you can read here about alternative payment options.
