Following a review we have decided to withdraw the Business Administration qualifications. The final date for entries will be 31/12/2023. Please refer to the subject update below for last certification dates and further information.
During 2021/22 adaptations to assessments were available to support candidates and assessors while public health restrictions were in place. As those restrictions are no longer in place, those adaptations are no longer necessary. In 2022/23 (and beyond) evidence produced for assessments must be in line with the requirements and guidance set out in the centre handbook and units.
Following the withdrawal of the Text Processing units in 2017, learners taking Administration (Business Professional) will still be able to use any prior achievement of Text Processing units for certification.
The OCR Level 4 Award in Administration (Business Professional) has been developed to recognise learners' understanding of complex administrative functions and activities. It accredits learners' abilities to carry out key administrative tasks demanding a high level of personal autonomy in a senior or supervisory role. The qualification has been designed to accredit learners' achievements in a modern, practical way that is relevant to the work context.
