(NCFE) Combined Diploma in Business Administration Level 3

Level 3
Course Code:
North Devon Campus
One year

All businesses require Business and Administration skills and processes. Without administrators, information would be hard to find, meetings would be missed and businesses would be less productive. Administration roles are an excellent starting point to move into management once more experience has been gained. This is a combined diploma proving knowledge and competence within that sector

This sort of work requires a strong sense of responsibility, accuracy and attention to detail. If you are over 19, you may be eligible to study this course for FREE under the Careers Learning Pilot Scheme.


The Diploma requires learners to successfully achieve a minimum of 45 credits. These credits will be completed, through the achievement of the six mandatory units (21 credits) and the remaining 24 credits will be taken from the optional group.
