    I am currently in my first year of college doing BTEC level 3 health and social care. I do have plans to go uni but not certain of what course.

    I have signed up for the positive outcomes apprenticeship scheme and have the opportunity to do an administration apprenticeship but was wondering what is like in terms of pay? I am 18 so, would that mean for me? could I still progress to uni with this apprenticeship?

    I have been emailed the job description and by the looks of it, I don't think I will enjoy it.

    Communicate with negotiators and clients via telephone and email[*]General administration including filing and faxing documentation and completing administration tasks for other staff members.[*]Meet with clients within the office and register their details [*]Book property viewings and inspections with clients and negotiators, recording the appointments in the branch diary. [*]Update and maintain the company database with client and property details [*]Ensure the website is updated with new properties [*]Produce window cards and brochures [*]Complete spreadsheets of property inventories

    If anyone is doing/ has done an apprenticeship in administration, how was it, did you like it and what was the pay like?
