This workbook will support you in achieving all aspects of your Apprenticeship framework. This section will help you prepare for the first visit by your assessor, and forms part of the induction to your Apprenticeship. In this section you will find an activity to help you prepare and gather evidence for your assessment related to this topic: 1. Preparing for a Level 3 Apprenticeship Some of the evidence you will be asked to provide will be assessed both through documents and tasks that you have completed in your work and by direct observation. You might be observed by your assessor when you are working. Your supervisor or other colleagues can also observe you at work and complete a witness statement to give to your assessor. These observations should be of real work activities and not simulated tasks. If you are recorded while you are working, you may have to get permission from any colleagues present during the recording. The tasks in this Workbook will provide further evidence for all aspects of your framework. You will also take part in professional discussions with your assessor during the visit. Your assessor may want to discuss your progress with your workplace supervisor, so your supervisor will need to know the planned date of the visit.

1. PREPARING FOR A LEVEL 3 APPRENTICESHIP
As a Business & Administration Level 3 apprentice, you will play an important support role at work. You will be handling day-to-day activities in an office setting within a business organisation. You could, for example, be working in a public sector organisation, a charity, a newspaper or in an office in a retail setting. The exact nature of your job will depend upon your employer. However, it is likely that you will be helping the business run smoothly by doing tasks such as typing up meeting documents, handling spreadsheets, and dealing with incoming and outgoing post for the organisation.

Efficient admininstration helps a business run smoothly.

The tasks in this section of the Workbook will help you to demonstrate your knowledge and understanding of your Apprenticeship. You will explore the components of the Apprenticeship, the strategies for assessment and the importance of the Apprenticeship agreement. This will help you to develop an individual learning plan (ILP), which will be reviewed on each assessor visit in a meeting you have with your tutor and your supervisor.

These are: • employment rights and responsibilities • competence-based element • knowledge-based element • Key or Functional Skills. Complete the table on page 4 to show the qualifications that make up each element of your Apprenticeship. State the types of evidence you will need to gather.
