How we’ll support your development

You will be working towards your Level 4 Data Analyst apprenticeship qualification, with additional optional qualifications – BCS Diploma in Data Analysis Concepts and BCS Certificate Data Analyst Tools. You will be assigned a project to provide technical and data solutions to a range of stakeholders, whilst also gaining hands on day-to-day operations experience.

You will learn through live interactive workshops lead by Data Experts and via highly tailored online learning and practice. All the while you will be applying your new skills to real world business challenges using live company data, whilst being coached along the way by a dedicated Data Coach.

The projects and assignments are focused both on an internal team and wider business basis, giving you plenty of opportunity to network and provide value to the wider organisation. During your apprenticeship, you will use the technical tools, techniques and learning from the Data Analyst Apprenticeship Standard to identify creative ways to use data to inform decision-making, operational efficiency, and productivity across the business function and where possible more broadly.

What we’re looking for

We are looking for people who are highly motivated, passionate about learning and ready to take their analysis skills to the next level.  We’re not expecting prior industry experience, but we’ll want to see that you have the tools to develop quickly.
