    Business Admin Level 2 NVQ

    Describe the communication requirements of different audiences
    If you think this through, it's fairly obvious. What would you do differently if you were talking to a group of 5 year olds compared to a group of teenagers? In a business environment, would you need to explain things differently if you were talking to the new apprentice, compared to someone with 30 years' experience? So obviously one of the requirements is to communicate in a way that the audience understands, and that's not going to be the same for all audiences.
    A similar communication requirement would be around disability. If someone is hard of hearing, you might need to speak louder and clearer. You might need to produce the information in a written format.

    Another communication requirement would be around retention of information. If it's something important (like figures) it would be better to produce a written format, or possibly a spreadsheet. Saying a lot of numbers verbally to share sales figures would get confusing quickly, but as a table it is easy to understand.

    I found this information useful, as I am currently studying my L2 business administration- therefore I can relate back to this source.
    Some great topics mentioned, and it is easy to understand too.
    Many thanks.

    Hi, this is a great example and way to explain this question, however wondered if you could help me understand how internal and external can be related to the question.
    Because i see it as internal and external should be treated equally.

    Many Thanks

    With internal communication, you know your audience more. You know what Janet from accounts is like. You know if you're emailing your boss, or the office junior. So you can tailor your communication appropriately - and they can give feedback if necessary.

    With external communication, you don't know the audience. You can make generalisations - like you can assume that the audience of a programme on CBBC is likely to be very young, or someone shopping in Prada is going to enjoy fashion. But with any communication, you have to assume it will be widely mocked on Twitter if it's inappropriate. Any advert can go viral. But you don't want yours to for the wring reasons.

    Another difference is that you don't want to reveal business sensitive information to external audiences.

    Your answers should be different because the questions are different. Your wording can sound similar because that's your writing style, but the actual content should differ.

    You're gonna have to be more specific in what unit 2 is and what you're stuck on.
