EXPERT TRAINING

Learn by doing with our technical training. You’ll put theory into practice with hands-on activities and expert demonstrations in six 2-day SMART Classroom sessions. Unlike traditional education, our apprenticeship training doesn’t simply teach for the test. Our exam-free programme and project-led approach gives you the skills employers are looking for.

Course 1: Unlocking the Power of Data

Every organisation is surrounded by data, but only a few capitalise on their data capabilities. In this hands-on course, we explore the value of data and teach learners how use the data tools at their disposal to source and gather information – ready for future analysis.

Course 2: Making Data-Driven Decisions

Business decisions should be based on fact and insight, rather than intuition and assumption. In this 2-day course, we teach learners how to identify trends and patterns in data that would otherwise be hidden – improving efficiency and encouraging strategic decision-making.

Course 3: Maintaining Data Quality & Integrity 

The importance of data quality cannot be underestimated as minor errors can lead to major inaccuracies. During this practical course, apprentices will learn how to effectively validate, cleanse and resolve data quality issues to provide accurate business intelligence.  

Course 4: Algorithms, Automation & Statistical Analysis 

Statistical analysis turns complex data into meaningful insights. In this 2-day course, apprentices will learn to efficiently analyse company data using advanced Microsoft Excel techniques. With a focus on data validity, we’ll also cover automation in data analysis. 

Course 5: Maximising Data Security 

Data is one of the most valuable assets to any organisation, and as with anything of value – it must be protected. In this hands-on course, apprentices will learn how to collect, store, use and destroy data ethically, following business policies, processes, and legalisation.

Course 6: Telling Data Stories using PowerBi  

Communication is a core skill for any successful data analyst. When data is presented effectively, it can inspire change and transform business strategies. Over 2 days, we teach apprentices how to present data findings using Microsoft PowerBi, Tableau, and Excel. However, this course goes beyond hard skills, learners will also develop valuable soft skills such as analytical thinking and public speaking.

WORKPLACE PROJECTS

Our apprenticeship curriculum combines expert technical training with corresponding workplace projects. After each course, you’ll get the chance to apply what you’ve learned to your day-to-day work and carry on building your skills while making a real difference in your team.

On this programme, you’ll complete the following projects:

  • Working with Specified Data Sources

  • Validate & Analyse Data from Specified Data Sources

Role Overview: Junior Data Analyst Apprentice

Today, businesses are collecting data all the time – from sensors, social media and software systems. Data can power innovation, optimise performance, and uncover important insights – but many businesses don’t have the people or skills they need to make the most of it.

A Junior Data Analyst can add value in any area of business where data is generated or processed. People in this job role source, format, and present data to help leaders make evidence-based decisions. Day to day responsibilities for a Junior Data Analyst include blending data from multiple sources, data cleansing and preparation, and simple statistical analysis of data to support business outcomes.

Typically, a Junior Data Analyst will work as part of a larger team, preparing datasets for (and learning from) more senior Analysts. They could also be based within a specific department, reporting findings to senior managers and key decision makers.

A data apprenticeship is a great way to learn the ropes of data analysis and start your career in an exciting and fast-moving industry.
