Business Admin

In 2008 Peterhead Engineers Development Limited (PEDL) expanded its remit to include apprenticeship training in Business and Administration. This exciting development and the associated investment provided a new opportunity for young people in the Buchan area of Aberdeenshire to study locally and progress to a Level 6 Modern Apprenticeship in Business Administration. It is also an approved and cost-effective way for employers to increase the skills and qualifications of their staff, to the benefit of everyone concerned.

The dedication and commitment of the PEDL team of instructors and assessors, together with the excellent facilities at the Training Centre, contributed to another milestone being reached in 2012 with PEDL becoming recognised formally as an approved Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA) centre which now adds the National Certificate in Administration to the portfolio.

NC Administration

The NC Administration course consists of 12 units and is completed at the training centre on a day-release basis.

SVQ Business and Administration Level 5 and 6

The SVQ is a work-based qualification and the candidate must be in full time employment in order to complete this course. An assessor from The Training Centre will be assigned to the candidate and visits will be conducted between the assessor and the candidate on a regular basis to enable them to compile a portfolio of their work.
