Filling the knowledge gap for the NDBA Level 5

About the project
In this study, Vivienne Kermode and Eth Lloyd show that independent workplace assessors and ITPs can work together to fill the knowledge gaps for administrative professionals who undertake a NDBA L5 in their workplace. Linking theoretical learning with workplace assessment opportunities for a NDBA L5 ensures that already held skills and newly acquired knowledge go hand in hand with the work carried out every day by administrative professionals in their workplace environment.
Their recommendations are that ITPs recognise that there is a potentially untapped market of administrative professionals who are in employment, but do not require full-time or whole-course study with an ITP, and yet would benefit from access to some formal new learning in specific ‘knowledge gap’ areas.
